MSBI #74 – SSIS #32 – Fast Modification of Transaction Option and Isolation Level inside SSIS package Code

Hi Geeks ,

Today I found interesting findings in SSIS Package features in side package code XML format ..

Problem Statements  / Requirement :

What we have to do for all Task following action thought each 30’s package in All in all 100 ‘s of various SQL Task 

  • Isolation Level – Read Uncommitted
  • Transaction Option – Required

Note : This explanation post was for SQL Server 2012 and at the end section of this post i have provided tips for 2008 R2 to use in similar way

Lets take example for now only with two task as shown

image

This both task are simple in which we have just used connection string and in SQL Statement we have used Select 1 as shown :

image

So lets for this task we have to do following long step as shown in five to six step

image

This is not and big issue if you have only few packages and couple of component task.

But i have 30 Package and around 100’s of Task … Then in this case how i should avoid setting parameter is real challenge for this task.

Without Zero thinking i jumped into Package physical path for more details

So viewing selecting code into Note pad

SSIS Package inside code is something like !! More Complex !! Isn’t it ?

Now following are key points just use then as it is !

Transaction option configuration setting Details

We know that we have three option in Transaction Option

image

This is stored in XML file in following screen shot 

image

Which in terms of coding or in terms SSIS XML format

  1. Not Supported – 0
  2. Supported – 1
  3. Required -  2
  4. Now replacing DTS:Transaction Option="0" with any desired and required option will preserver our lot of time

Isolation Level option configuration setting Details

We have following six option in Isolation Level

image 

This is stored in XML file in following screen shot

image

Yes !! This number are quite surprising anyways we have full list of what represents what

  1. Unspecified – (-1) (Yes Minus 1)
  2. Chaos – 16
  3. ReadUncommitted – 256
  4. ReadCommitted – 4096
  5. RepeatableRead – 65536
  6. Serializable – 1048576
    Now replacing DTS:ISOLevel="4096" with any desired and required option will preserver our lot of time

image

      So in this way we can change very fast in our development processes .
      Short explanation of Isolation levels are as follows

    ReadUncommited: Does not lock the records being read. This means that an uncommitted change can be read and then rolled back by another client, resulting in a local copy of a record that is not consistent with what is stored in the database. This is called a dirty read because the data is inconsistent.

    Chaos: Behaves the same way as ReadUncommitted, but checks the isolation level of other pending transactions during a write operation so that transactions with more restrictive isolation levels are not overwritten.

    ReadCommitted: Locks the records being read and immediately frees the lock as soon as the records have been read. This prevents any changes from being read before they are committed, but it does not prevent records from being added, deleted, or changed by other clients during the transaction.

    RepeatableRead: Locks the records being read and keeps the lock until the transaction completes. This ensures that the data being read does not change during the transaction.

    Serializable: Locks the entire data set being read and keeps the lock until the transaction completes. This ensures that the data and its order within the database do not change during the transaction.

    Snapshot: The data read within a transaction will never reflect changes made by other simultaneous transactions. The transaction uses the data row versions that exist when the transaction begins. No locks are placed on the data when it is read.

    Tips for SQL Server 2008 R2

    For replacing in XML format we just have change search as SQL 2008 format

    For Isolation option

    <DTS:Property DTS:Name="ISOLevel">256</DTS:Property>

    For Transaction option

    <DTS:Property DTS:Name="TransactionOption">1</DTS:Property>
