@Naren, You must consider Mr. Fatherjack's suggestion. Hope you do that.

After the anticipation, can you please clarify this statement in your question "we increased the maxsize to that file but". Your question is quite ambiguous and you should add more details. As far as job running time is concerned, it is very easy, you can find it out in msdb.dbo.sysjobhistory table. I am not giving it as an answer, because I think your question is something else which you were not able to portray.

There are two possible places for errors, the SQL Server error log may have information about the failure. This is found under the Server Objects folder in Object Explorer.

You also may see errors in the SQL Agent error log. This is found under the SQL Agent folder in the Object Explorer.

Also, you can modify your jobs to provide an output file. This will contain a lot more detail if things go wrong to help you understand what happened. This is available on the Advanced paged of each Job Step.
