DtsContainer.StartTime Property

Returns the time that the container began execution. This property is read-only.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.ManagedDTS (in microsoft.sqlserver.manageddts.dll)

[BrowsableAttribute(false)] 
public DateTime StartTime { get; }
/** @property */
public final DateTime get_StartTime ()

public final function get StartTime () : DateTime

Property Value

A DateTime value that indicates when the container started running.

The following code example assumes a package named pkg has been created. The package is executed, and the start time, stop time, and duration of the run is recorded. The variables are created after the package is run to capture the information. The pkg object can be replaced by any container, task, or object that inherits from DtsContainer, as DtsContainer inherits the IDTSExecutionMetrics interface.

pkg.Execute();
DateTime dtStart = pkg.StartTime;
DateTime dtStop = pkg.StopTime;
int pgkDuration = pkg.ExecutionDuration;
