Filtering Queries

If you need to limit the list of available queries to only those that you are interested in, use the filtering panel on the left, or use the filter by bar to set filters using key:value syntax.


Following example shows how to filter just the queries that are executed on the Ubuntu node. Note that Labels unavailable within the set of currently applied filters are shown as gray/disabled on the filtering panel, and the percentage values are dynamically recalculated to reflect the current selection.


By default Filter panel shows top 5 Labels in each section. The additional “See all” link with the total number of Labels appears if their amount exceeds five. Clicking this link toggles it into “Show top 5” and reveals all Labels available in the section.

Selecting Time or Date Range

The query metrics that appear in QAN are computed based on a time period or a range of dates. The default value is the last hour. To set another range use the range selection tool located at the top of the QAN page.


QAN displays query metrics for the time period or date range that you specify.

The tool consists of two parts. The Quick ranges offers frequently used time ranges.. The date picker sets a range of dates.

Totals of the Query Summary

The first line of the query summary contains the totals of the load, count, and latency for all queries that were run on the selected database server during the time period that you’ve specified.

The load is the amount of time that the database server spent during the selected time or date range running all queries.

The count is the average number of requests to the server during the specified time or date range.

The latency is the average amount of time that it took the database server to retrieve and return the data.

Queries in the Query Summary Table

Each row in the query summary contains information about a single query. Each column is query attribute. The Query attribute informs the type of query, such as INSERT, or UPDATE, and the queried tables, or collections. The ID attribute is a unique hexadecimal number associated with the given query.

The Load, Count, and Latency attributes refer to the essential metrics of each query. Their values are plotted graphics and summary values in the numeric form. The summary values have two parts. The average value of the metric and its percentage with respect to the corresponding total value at the top of the query summary table.

Viewing a Specific Value of a Metric

If you hover the cursor over one of the metrics in a query, you can see a concrete value at the point where your cursor is located. Move the cursor along the plotted line to watch how the value is changing.


Hover the cursor to see a value at the point.
