The Query Details view displays query metrics, the text of the query, and the query plan and progress for a single query selected from the Query Monitor view.
The Query ID, execution status, and run time of the query are displayed at the top.
The following metrics are displayed for the query.
1 − (average segment CPU / maximum segment CPU)
The query text and the query’s plan and execution progress are shown in the lower panels of the Query Details view. The text of the query is displayed in the left panel, and the plan and progress is displayed in the right panel.
The Plan & Progress tab in the lower right panel is a graphical representation of the query plan with animation and real-time metrics to show execution progress. Each box in the tree represents a step in the query execution plan. The boxes are labeled with the operation they represent and have a CPU usage metric. Query execution begins at the bottom of the tree and ends at the top.
Before a step begins to execute, the box has a solid white fill. When the step becomes active, the box is animated with a green and white fill to indicate that the operator is working. When the step has completed, the box has a solid green fill.
Query execution plans are executed in “slices,” portions of the query plan that segments can work on independently in parallel. The plan is sliced wherever a data motion operator occurs. The time displayed in the upper right corner of each box is the amount of CPU time used for all steps in the slice to which the step belongs. The visual query plan does not illustrate slices, but you can find information about slices in the textual plan.
If you click a step, the box expands to show additional details.
The expanded plan box contains the following metrics.
- The type of operator. When the operator is a table scan, the name of the scanned table is included. See Query Plan Execution for descriptions of the operators.
- Row Skew - the amount of row skew for the current operator, a value from 0% to 100%. Row skew occurs when some segments process more rows than other segments. The percentage is calculated as
(1 − (average segment rows / maximum segment rows)) * 100.
- Estimated Completion - the current percentage of actual rows to estimated rows for this plan step. The percentage can exceed 100% if the operation produces more rows than the optimizer’s estimate. The percentage changes to “Completed” when the operation completes.
- Actual Rows - The current number of rows produced by this step. Note that for nested join operators, the Actual Rows is estimated since the actual row counts are not available while the join is executing.
- Estimated Rows - The estimated number of rows the operator will produce.
Select the Textual Plan tab and click RUN EXPLAIN to generate the text representation of the explain plan.
The RUN EXPLAIN button is dimmed if Command Center is unable to generate the explain plan. Command Center is unable to generate the explain plan if the size of the query text is greater than 100K or if the query text contains multiple statements.
The textual plan is the output of the Greenplum Database
EXPLAIN command for the query. The query plan steps are labeled with arrows (
->) and the structure of the query plan tree is indicated with indentation.
Optimizer status: line at the bottom of the textual plan reports whether the explain plan was generated using the GPORCA optimizer (PQO) or the legacy query optimizer.
For help reading the textual explain plan see the
EXPLAIN command in the Greenplum Database Reference Guide and Query Profiling in the Greenplum Database Administrator Guide. See Query Execution for descriptions of the query operators.
