Earlier this month, Pragmatic Works released a new tool for their Pragmatic Works Workbench toolbox: The Best Practice Analyzer. The guys and gals over at Pragmatic Works have come up with a tool that analyzes your existing SSIS packages and compares them with a standardized set of best practice guidelines produced by the expert team of consultants and developers you’ve come to know and love over the past several years.
The Best Practice Analyzer combs through the SSIS packages you have selected and produces a report outlining all the best practice violations including violations of varying severities, such as “Warning”, “Error”, “Performance”, and “Informational”.
First, select the packages you’d like to investigate for adherence to best practices.
Next, select the best practices to be included in the report.
The end result is an easy-to-read report identifying any violations of best practices.
Violations could include everything between leaving a component description blank, using a fully block transform in a Data Flow Task, not enabling error logging, plus many more. Head over to PragmaticWorks.com to get more information on the SSIS Best Practice Analyzer.
