Features of the Splice Machine Database Console

This section summarizes the use of major features of the Database Console interface, including:

Drilling Down

In general, you can click anything that displays in blue (like this) to drill down into a more detailed view. For example, clicking Explain in the following description from the completed jobs table will drill down into the job details for Job 113:

You can continue to drill down from there to reveal increasing levels of detail.

Switching Views

You can quickly switch to a different view by clicking a tab in the tab bar at the top of the console screen. The Jobs tab is selected in this screen shot:

Refreshing the View

Currently, the console does not automatically or periodically refresh the view.

If you’re monitoring an active job, you’ll need to refresh your browser window to view the latest activity.

Zooming the Timeline View

When you’re viewing an event timeline, you can Enable zooming, which allows you to use mouse or touch gestures to zoom in on a portion or a timeline, zoom out, or scroll through the timeline.
