Greetings Dan. Great article!

I have a question regarding the output table snapshots.trace_data. Data makes it into this table when the Trace server and MDW servers are the same, but not when they're different. The jobs run without error, etc. but data simply never arrives. I ran a trace on the MDW server to see if anything was happening during the collection/ load phase and there is some activity related to these, but not the actual load.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

For starters, check the execution log in the MDW database for the problem collection set to see if any issues are logged:

SELECT *
FROM syscollector_execution_log
WHERE collection_set_id = <specify-collection_set_id-here>
ORDER BY finish_time;



You can find additional details about Data Collector logging at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb677224(v=sql.105).aspx.


Hope this helps.
