Use the Configure SSIS Logs dialog box to define logging options for a package.
Use the Containers pane of the Configure SSIS Logs dialog box to enable the package and its containers for logging.
Select the check boxes in the hierarchical view to enable the package and its containers for logging:
If cleared, the container is not enabled for logging. Select to enable logging.
If dimmed, the container uses the logging options of its parent. This option is not available for the package.
If checked, the container defines its own logging options.
If a container is dimmed and you want to set logging options on the container, click its check box twice. The first click clears the check box, and the second click selects it, enabling you to choose the log providers to use and select the information to log.
Use the Providers and Logs tab of the Configure SSIS Logs dialog box to create and configure logs for capturing run-time events.
Select a type of log provider from the list.
Add a log of the specified type to the collection of log providers of the package.
Enable or disable logs for containers or tasks selected in the Containers pane of the Configure SSIS Logs dialog box, by using the check boxes. The name field is editable. Use the default name for the provider, or type a unique descriptive name.
The description field is editable. Click and then modify the default description of the log.
Select an existing connection manager in the list, or click <New connection...> to create a new connection manager. Depending on the type of log provider, you can configure an OLE DB connection manager or a File connection manager. The log provider for the Microsoft Windows Event Log requires no connection.
Use the Details tab of the Configure SSIS Logs dialog box to specify the events to enable for logging and the information details to log. The information that you select applies to all the log providers in the package. For example, you cannot write some information to the SQL Server instance and different information to a text file.
Enable or disable events for logging.
View a description of the event.
