Breakpoints in SSIS


Breakpoint is responsible to stop execution of package when specific event occur in control flow to investigate and troubleshoot  the state of the SSIS package.
There are 10 events in control flow
OnPreExecute: This event is raised by task or container certainly before it run
OnPostExecute: this event raised immediately after execution of logic of task completed.
OnError:  This event raised when an error occur in task or in container.
OnWarning: This event is raised when task or container in a state does not justify the  an error but show as a warning.
OnInformation: Basically this is called when task or container need to provide information.
OnTaskFailed: this event raised when it task fails.
OnProgress: This is called and show update when task logic executed.
OnQueryCancel : This called when executing task has been cancelled.
OnVariableValueChanged: This event raised by Integration Service runtime when value of a variable change. The RaiseChangeEvent of the variable must be set true to raise this event.
OnCustomEvent: This event raised by tasks to raise custom task-defined events.


BREAKPOINT DEMO
To implement breakpoint start right click on the Control Flow and click on the EditBreakPoint on the option
 
After clicking on EditBreakpoint  a window open from where you can chose the breakpoint option as per given above description and click on OK now breakpoint is applied on task flow.

Now you notice a red point on the Task where you applied the breakpoint this indicate there is a breakpoint on the task. Let's run the package now you see what happen when the breakpoint is reached, a title yellow arrow is added to the breakpoint arrow.
 
To get some information there are some number of things can be use once a breakpoint has been used.
Start with Call Stack Window which provide information where the breakpoint is located.
 
Next is Breakpoint window where all breakpoint is listed there, the blue area which show all listed Breakpoints from where you can disable and enable breakpoints .
Second red area is the control panel from here you can remove the breakpoint from the task.
 

Output window show the progress of the package and breakpoint.
 

Local Window the most important window the breakpoint bring which contains information on the current status of package execution and the amount of the time in which  the package has been executing.

 
It contains all of the package variables which troubleshoot some odd package behavior it is related to variables not being populated as I thought they should.  This is the best way to finding out what the package is doing during execution

Remove special character from string in MongoDB

Problem: Suppose wehave a collection and one field is type string contains some special character (like !@#$%) and we don’t want these special character.

What is difference between UNION and UNION ALL in SQL Server

We use UNION and UNION ALL operator to combine multiple results set into one result set.
UNION operator is used to combining multiple results set into one result set but removes any duplicate rows. Basically, UNION is used to performing a DISTINCT operation across all columns in the result set. UNION operator has the extra overhead of removing duplicate rows and sorting result.
UNION ALL operator use to combine multiple results set into one result set but it does not remove any duplicate result. Actually, this does not remove duplicate rows so it is faster than the UNION operator. If you want to combine multiple results and without duplicate records then use UNION otherwise UNION ALL is better.
Following some rules for using UNION/UNION ALL operator
1.The number of the column should be the same in the query's when you want to combine them. 2.The column should be of the same data type. 3.ORDER BY clause can be applied to the overall result set not within each result set.
4.Column name of …
