Last month, Microsoft posted an excerpt from from the book, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services Step by Step on the MSDN site. In this excerpt, you learn how to use Integration Services to extract data from the Reporting Services database to analyze performance data, such as processing and rendering times for reports. This excerpt expands upon the samples shipped with the product by showing you step by step how to set up and use the execution logging system. Links are provided to download the sample database and a sample solution with the Integration Services package and Reporting Services reports to get started. You can view the excerpt by clicking here. Enjoy!

2/18/2010 – I am working on a new post about performance monitoring and realized the link to the excerpt has changed. I have updated it to the current location.
