In SSRS.ReportServer database, there is executionlog view that has details of reports that were completed (succeeded & failed) , not what is running right now.

In Management Studio, if you connect to Reporting Services, there is Jobs (+) tree, that shows reports running right now, but that does not seem accurate, because..
e.g. SSRS01 (Reporting Server) -> SQL01 (Data Source where report query is run).
On SQL01, I see a spid in sp_who2 with hostname SSRS01 running for past 1 day.
But on SSRS01 Jobs, I don't see it.

Then I killed that spid on SQL01. CPU usage dropped. But I was expecting to see it in executionlog view, with high TimeDataRetreival, or rsProcessingAborted status.
But can't find it.

Then I looked in reporting services LogFiles directory, can't find any thing stand out.

Sometimes, I can't find any spid on data source server, still ReportingServices.exe uses 100% CPU. When I restart the reporting service, cpu goes down to normal..

So, question is : What is best way to find reports that are currently running from the SSRS server?

There is a table in ReportServer DB called RunningJobs but it does not update instantly during report execution.
So you have to tweak RSReportServer.config RunningRequestsDbCycle and set it to 15 or 30 to see data in RunningJobs table.

Try this in Dev.
