Returned column information

  • A valid object_type value consists of a relkind type defined in PG_CLASS (TABLE ordinary table, INDEX, SEQUENCE, VIEW, FOREIGN TABLE, COMPOSITE TYPE, or TOASTVALUE TOAST table) and the rtekind type used in the plan (SUBQUERY, JOIN, FUNCTION, VALUES, CTE, or REMOTE_QUERY).
  • For RangeTableEntry (RTE), object_owner is the object description used in the plan. Non-user-defined objects do not have object_owner.
  • Information in the statement_id, object_name, object_owner, and projection columns is stored in letter cases specified by users and information in other columns is stored in uppercase.
  • PLAN_TABLE supports only SELECT and DELETE and does not support other DML operations.
