While troubleshooting performance issues or problems with tasks being delayed or not starting/running correctly, it may be helpful to view the currently running tasks. The following SQL query will show the currently running task reports. There is also an attached XML that can be imported as a report.
declare @taskType as nvarchar (10)
set @taskType = '%taskType%'
i.Guid AS '_ItemGuid'
,'Task Name' = coalesce(i.Name, '[Data not available]')
,tiis.name as "Run Instance Name"
,tiis.ExecutedBy as "Executed By"
,'Start Time' = coalesce (CAST(s.StartTime AS VARCHAR), '[Data has been Purged]')
,'Target Device' = coalesce (vci.Name, '[Could not retrieve]')
when 0 then 'Server Task'
else 'Client Task'
CASE CAST(tis.[InstanceStatus] AS varchar)
WHEN '1' THEN 'Running'
WHEN '2' THEN 'Completed'
WHEN '3' THEN 'Failed'
WHEN '4' THEN 'Stop Requested'
