The Query Monitor view allows you to view detailed information for active queries running on the Greenplum Database system. Users with Admin or Operator permission can see and cancel all users’ queries.
If a Command Center administrator has enabled Query Monitor Guest Access, anyone able to access the Command Center web server can view the system status and query list on this page without signing in to Command Center. Anonymous users, however, cannot cancel queries or access any other Command Center features.
Data is collected on currently running queries and the query monitor metrics are updated every 15 seconds. The time of the last update and a graphical timer showing the time remaining before the next update are displayed at the top of the page.
With the information available in this view, Greenplum Database administrators can easily:
- Understand how the system is being used — both in real-time and trending over time.
- Identify and diagnose problem queries while they are running, detect skew, find runaway queries, and so on.
- Review and balance the query load on the system by better optimizing and scheduling the query load.
- Cancel queries that disrupt system performance.
- Post a message that is displayed for all Command Center users.
The Query Monitor table displays the following columns for queries.
- Queued: the query has not yet started to execute
- Running: execution has started, is not yet complete
- Done: completed successfully
- Cancelling: cancel request sent, cancel pending
- Cancelled: terminated, no longer running
