Debug tab with SQL query

Debug tab with SQL query

  • Start date and End date - Timestamps for the Window in which the incident was captured.
  • SQL query - For Data Warehouse and Query Engine sources, you will see the section SQL query. This section contains an auto-generated SQL query, designed for troubleshooting incidents.
    • The query filters data down to the specific Window and Segment where the incident occurred.
    • The query orders records based on the distance of their metric field from the mean, effectively returning the most prominent outliers at the top. It is important to note that outliers are not the only cause of incidents. However, analyzing outliers is usually a good starting point for troubleshooting.
    • You can click on Load samples to immediately view the query result. Alternatively, you can copy the query text to your favorite IDE and modify it as needed.


      Note that SQL query is only available for sources where Validio utilizes SQL pushdown for validation, which is common for Data Warehouses and Query Engines.

  • Bucket - For Object Storage sources, you will see the section Bucket. This section contains information about the bucket and file(s) holding the data where the incident was found. From here you can navigate to, download, or copy the link to, the file(s).
