SSIS 2008 package processing excel files hangs using SSA HELP!!!!!

SSIS 2008 package processing excel files hangs using SSA HELP!!!!!

(OP)
My SSIS 2008 R2 package processing 55 excel files successfully in BIDS, but when I run the SSIS pacakge under Sql Serve Agent the job hangs with about 25 excel files processed. I notice their were a 15 excel.exe processes in the Windows Task Manager Processes tab. Does anyone have a solution? I would appreciate anyone's help.

Thanks

Run this on the server:

CODE

SELECT *
FROM msdb.dbo.syssubsystems;
This controls how many 'max worker threads' can exist at one time.  I suggest increasing the SSIS max_worker_threads value.  Try doubling it to see if that resolves the issue.

Hello SQLBill,

The max worker thread on my server is 512.  I ran this script below:

select max_workers_count from sys.dm_os_sys_info


Is this a low number or should I increase more. The SSIS package running under sql server agent can only process up to 25 excel files without hanging. If I go more than 25 excel files job hangs.
If any solutions please let me know.

Hello SQLBill,

thanks
