This video demonstrates how to measure and understand the performance of packages, based on lessons learned from enterprise customers. In this video, you will learn the following guidelines for improving performance:
- How the limits of the source system affect performance.
- Why disk I/O is important.
- Why you should establish a package performance baseline

This video demonstrates how to improve the performance of the data flow in an Integration Services package. In this video, you will learn how to tune the following phases of the data flow:
You can apply these performance tuning tips when you design, develop, and run the data flow.

This video looks at the memory buffers that transfer data to the data flow of an Integration Services package. The video includes the following items:
- Demonstration of a simple package that shows you how Integration Services divides the data along the data flow paths and how buffers carry data along those paths.
This simple package performs the following operations:
- Data extraction
- Character mapping
- Creation of new columns by using a synchronous transformation
- Sorting by using a blocking (asynchronous) transformation.
