I'm using SQL Server 2012, what is the best way to analyze the different processing times for my different ETL/SSIS packages?

I'm interested in seeing perhaps a comparison of PROCESSING times campared against each other for a nightly ETL Jobs Run..

Thanks

Most developers I know, pre-2012, created their own 'logging' table for SSIS package runs, with an id identity columns, and columns for the name, any variables passed, whatever.

When a package starts, an SQL Task in the beginning writes a row to this table, returns the id value, and then stores that value in an SSIS variable.

When a package ends, a SQL Task at the end updates that row based on the id = @id, and adding whatever other values you wish to track such as number of files processed, number of rows inserted-updated-deleted, etc.

Then, just query the table to view all history.

I was wondering if there was some kind of module or app in SQL Server 2012 that would help in this regard. I wonder if some SYS table automatically tracks the actual processing time spent in seconds or whatever,...?

Built-in Reporting shows some promise, but I haven't worked with it so can't give you a definitive answer.

I'll step back to encourage other experts to respond.
