Hello,

I want to modify this query for checking the jobs status last 24 hours :

set nocount on; select distinct replace (j.name, ' ', '')  +'|'+ case h.run_status when 0 then 'Failed' when 1 then 'Successful'  when 3 then 'Cancelled' when 4 then 'In Progress' end as JobStatus from msdb..sysjobhistory h, msdb..sysjobs j where j.job_id = h.job_id and h.step_id = 1 and h.run_date =  (select max(hi.run_date) from msdb..sysjobhistory hi where h.job_id = hi.job_id) and h.run_time = (select max(hj.run_time) from msdb..sysjobhistory hj where h.job_id = hj.job_id) order by 1

Try:
set nocount on; 
select distinct replace (j.name, ' ', '')  +'|'+ case h.run_status when 0 then 'Failed' when 1 then 'Successful'  when 3 then 'Cancelled' when 4 then 'In Progress' end as JobStatus 
from msdb..sysjobhistory h, msdb..sysjobs j where j.job_id = h.job_id and h.step_id = 1 and h.run_date >= dateadd(hh, -24, getdate())
order by 1

The following error is returned :

Msg 8115, Level 16, State 2, Line 2

Can you post exactly what you are running and what SQL version you are running it on? The query is correct, so should work ok.

run_date is an integer not a datetime data type.

I guess SSMS must be a bit more forgiving then :)

Try this instead:
select distinct replace (j.name, ' ', '')  +'|'+ case h.run_status when 0 then 'Failed' when 1 then 'Successful'  when 3 then 'Cancelled' when 4 then 'In Progress' end as JobStatus 
from msdb..sysjobhistory h, msdb..sysjobs j where j.job_id = h.job_id and h.step_id = 1 and msdb.dbo.agent_datetime(h.run_date, h.run_time) >= dateadd(hh, -24, getdate())
order by 1

You never want to modify a table column data type when you can modify static data instead, as changing the table column will force scans; if a seek would have been available, performance can be hurt drastically.

Therefore, we should convert the current datetime to int formats (or varchar, which SQL will implicitly CAST to int for us)  for comparison to int columns "run_date" and "run_time", like so:

select distinct
    replace (j.name, ' ', '')  +'|'+ case h.run_status
        when 0 then 'Failed'
        when 1 then 'Successful'
        when 3 then 'Cancelled'
        when 4 then 'In Progress' end as JobStatus
from msdb..sysjobhistory h, msdb..sysjobs j
where
    j.job_id = h.job_id and
    h.step_id = 1 and
    (h.run_date = convert(char(8), getdate(), 112) or --today
     (h.run_date = convert(char(8), dateadd(day, -1, getdate()), 112) and --yesterday...
      h.run_time >=  replace(convert(varchar(8), getdate(), 108), ':', ''))) --...from current time forward
order by 1

Currently there are no indexes on run_date and run_time for sysjobhistory, but this is still the proper technique to follow to allow the best performance for queries in the future.
