The socket_* tables store statistical metrics about socket usage for a Greenplum Database instance. There are three system tables, all having the same columns:
Deprecated. These tables are not currently populated and will be removed in a future release.
There are three system tables, all having the same columns:
- socket_now is an external table whose data files are stored in $MASTER_DATA_DIRECTORY/gpperfmon/data.
- socket_tail is an external table whose data files are stored in $MASTER_DATA_DIRECTORY/gpperfmon/data. This is a transitional table for socket statistical metrics that has been cleared from socket_now but has not yet been committed to socket_history. It typically only contains a few minutes worth of data.
- socket_history is a regular table that stores historical socket statistical metrics. It is pre-partitioned into monthly partitions. Partitions are automatically added in two month increments as needed. Administrators must drop old partitions for the months that are no longer needed.
