Monitoring Data Quality activities on your server

In this short post I will show you how to check for the activities run or being run on your Data Quality Server.

First you need to open the Data Quality Client, placed in Start menu –> All programs\Microsoft SQL Server 2012\Data Quality Services. Once you connect to the DQS server, go to the right-most panel (Administration) and click on Activity monitoring button:


A new window opens and then you can see a list of the activities that your DQS instance is currently busy (or not) with.


In the monitor you can find the following information:

  • Activities, that are performed or currently running on the system (including their start and end time, duration, type, which Data Quality database they have been run against)
  • Activity steps
  • Profiler output (what the activity did in terms of knowledge discovery, data cleansing, etc.)
