sp_syscollector_update_collection_set (Transact-SQL)

Used to modify the properties of a user-defined collection set or to rename a user-defined collection set.

Caution note Caution

In cases where the Windows account configured as a proxy is a non-interactive or interactive user that has not yet logged in, the profile directory will not exist, and the creation of the staging directory will fail. Therefore, if you are using a proxy account on a domain controller, you must specify an interactive account that has been used at least once in order to assure that the profile directory has been created.

    [ [ @collection_set_id = ] collection_set_id ]

    , [ [ @target = ] 'target' ]
    , [ [ @collection_mode = ] collection_mode ]

    , [ [ @logging_level = ] logging_level ]
    , [ [ @description = ] 'description' ]
[ @collection_set_id = ] collection_set_id

Is the unique local identifier for the collection set. collection_set_id is int and must have a value if name is NULL.

[ @name = ] 'name'

Is the name of the collection set. name is sysname and must have a value if collection_set_id is NULL.

[ @new_name = ] 'new_name'

Is the new name for the collection set. new_name is sysname, and if used, cannot be an empty string. new_name must be unique. For a list of current collection set names, query the syscollector_collection_sets system view.

[ @target = ] 'target'

Reserved for future use.

[ @collection_mode = ] collection_mode

Is the type of data collection to use. collection_mode is smallint and can have one of the following values:

0 - Cached mode. Data collection and upload are on separate schedules. Specify cached mode for continuous collection.

1 - Non-cached mode. Data collection and upload is on the same schedule. Specify non-cached mode for ad hoc collection or snapshot collection.

If changing from non-cached mode to cached mode (0), you must also specify either schedule_uid or schedule_name.

[ @days_until_expiration= ] days_until_expiration

Is the number of days that the collected data is saved in the management data warehouse. days_until_expiration is smallint. days_until_expiration must be 0 or a positive integer.

[ @proxy_id = ] proxy_id

Is the unique identifier for a SQL Server Agent proxy account. proxy_id is int.

[ @proxy_name = ] 'proxy_name'

Is the name of the proxy. proxy_name is sysname and is nullable.

[ @schedule_uid = ] 'schedule_uid'

Is the GUID that points to a schedule. schedule_uid is uniqueidentifier.

To obtain schedule_uid, query the sysschedules system table.

When collection_mode is set to 0, schedule_uid or schedule_name must be specified. When collection_mode is set to 1, schedule_uid or schedule_name is ignored if specified.

[ @schedule_name = ] 'schedule_name'

Is the name of the schedule. schedule_name is sysname and is nullable. If specified, schedule_uid must be NULL. To obtain schedule_name, query the sysschedules system table.

[ @logging_level = ] logging_level

Is the logging level. logging_level is smallint with one of the following values:

0 - Log execution information and SSIS events that track:

  • Starting/stopping collection sets

  • Starting/stopping packages

  • Error information

1 - Level-0 logging and:

  • Execution statistics

  • Continuously running collection progress

  • Warning events from SSIS

2 - Level-1 logging and detailed event information from SSIS.

The default value for logging_level is 1.

[ @description = ] 'description'

Is the description of the collection set. description is nvarchar(4000).

0 (success) or 1 (failure)

sp_syscollector_update_collection_set must be run in the context of the msdb system database.

Either collection_set_id or name must have a value, both cannot be NULL. To obtain these values, query the syscollector_collection_sets system view.

If the collection set is running, you can only update schedule_uid and description. To stop the collection set, use sp_syscollector_stop_collection_set.

Requires membership in the dc_admin or the dc_operator (with EXECUTE permission) fixed database role to execute this procedure. Although dc_operator can run this stored procedure, members of this role are limited in the properties that they can change. The following properties can only be changed by dc_admin:

  • @new_name

  • @target

  • @proxy_id

  • @description

  • @collection_mode

  • @days_until_expiration

A. Renaming a collection set

The following example renames a user-defined collection set.

USE msdb;
GO
EXECUTE dbo.sp_syscollector_update_collection_set
@name = N'Simple collection set test 1',
@new_name = N'Collection set test 1 in cached mode';
GO

B. Changing the collection mode from non-cached to cached

The following example changes the collection mode from non-cached mode to cached mode. This change requires that you specify a schedule ID or schedule name.

USE msdb;
GO
EXECUTE dbo.sp_syscollector_update_collection_set
@name = N'Collection set test 1 in cached mode',
@collection_mode = 0,
@schedule_uid = 'C7022AF3-51B8-4011-B159-64C47C88FF70';
-- alternatively, use @schedule_name.
-- @schedule_name = N'CollectorSchedule_Every_15min;
GO

C. Changing other collection set parameters

The following example updates various properties of the collection set named "Simple collection set test 2'.

USE msdb;
GO
EXEC dbo.sp_syscollector_update_collection_set
@name = N'Simple collection set test 2',
@collection_mode = 1,
@days_until_expiration = 5,
@description = N'This is a test collection set that runs in noncached mode.',
@logging_level = 0;
GO
