Sample query

The following query shows the queries in the queue for service classes greater than 4.

select * from stv_wlm_query_queue_state where service_class > 4 order by service_class;

This query returns the following sample output.

service_class | position | task | query | slot_count | start_time | queue_time ---------------+----------+------+-------+------------+----------------------------+------------ 5 | 0 | 455 | 476 | 5 | 2010-10-06 13:18:24.065838 | 20937257 6 | 1 | 456 | 478 | 5 | 2010-10-06 13:18:26.652906 | 18350191 (2 rows)
