Returned column information

  • PLAN_TABLE_DATA records data of all users and sessions on the current node. Only administrators can access all the data. Common users can view only their own data in the PLAN_TABLE view.
  • Data of inactive (exited) sessions is cleaned from PLAN_TABLE_DATA by gs_clean after being stored in this system catalog for a certain period of time (5 minutes by default). You can also manually run gs_clean -C to delete inactive session data from the table..
  • Data is automatically inserted into PLAN_TABLE_DATA after EXPLAIN PLAN is executed. Therefore, do not manually insert data into or update data in PLAN_TABLE_DATA. Otherwise, data in PLAN_TABLE_DATA may be disordered. To delete data from PLAN_TABLE_DATA, you are advised to use the PLAN_TABLE view.
  • 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.
