socket_stats_*

socket_stats_*

The socket_stats_* tables store statistical metrics about socket usage for a Greenplum Database instance. There are three system tables, all having the same columns:

These tables are in place for future use and are not currently populated.

  • socket_stats_now is an external table whose data files are stored in $MASTER_DATA_DIRECTORY/gpperfmon/data.
  • socket_stats_tail is an external table whose data files are stored in $MASTER_DATA_DIRECTORY/gpperfmon/data. This is a transitional table for socket statistical metrics that has been cleared from socket_stats_now but has not yet been committed to socket_stats_history. It typically only contains a few minutes worth of data.
  • socket_stats_history is a regular table that stores historical socket statistical metrics. It is pre-partitioned into monthly partitions. Partitions are automatically added in two month increments as needed.
