Job Run Duration

By neder,

This script gives you an idea on how long the processing time is for your SQL jobs. It will depend on how many records are being retained on the sysjobhistory table (scripts defaults to the last 30 days--may not find any history at all).
One may find it useful when there are so many sql jobs and need to find some stats. More useful when combined with List SQL Server Jobs scripts.

Below are the returned column with a little explanation:
  Job Name    --  Name of the Scheduled Job
  Last_RunDate -- Last execution datetime
  Last_RunStatus -- status for the last run
  Last_RunDuration -- format is hh:mm:ss
  Avg Duration -- average exec time; format in hh:mm:ss
  Max Duration -- maximum exec time; format in hh:mm:ss
  Min Duration -- minimum exec time; format in hh:mm:ss
  From Date    -- oldest job run sampled
  Sampling     -- number of job history collected (run
                  status doesnt matter)
