Redshift Console's goal is to be the tool to monitor and manage a Redshift cluster. The first release has basic tools to monitor running queries, WLM queue and your tables/schemas.
After over a year of managing our Redshift cluster with a collection of scripts and queries, we decided to bundle this into a more user friendly tool that can be used by a wider audience. This project also aims to uncover all the useful information hidden in Redshift's Developer Guide (such as the table design status query).
- Inflight queries view with option to cancel any query and view related alerts (when available; from STL_ALERT_EVENT_LOG).
- WLM queue view.
- Schemas view with additional information for each table including: total size (rows/MB), unsorted area size, is the table properly distributed and more.
- Load errors (aggregated view) from the past 24h, based on STL_LOAD_ERRORS
This project is safe for usage, but still in its early stage (version 0.1). Future versions will include:
- Loads - Progress of current operations and history of recent ones.
- Vacuum status.
- SNS/CloudWatch integration to show metrics and events from AWS' console.
- Proactive notifications re. important events in the system: long running queries, problems, changes to the schema, dangerous levels of unsorted areas and more.
We are always happy to receive feedback and suggestions, especially if they are accompanied by a pull request.
You can either use the PyPI package or the docker image.
- The easiest way to install the project is from pypi:
$ pip install redshift-console
- Settings are set from environment variables. The main setting to set is the connection string to your Redshift cluster: (make sure the user has sufficient permissions)
$ export REDSHIFT_CONNECTION_STRING='user= password= host= port= dbname='
Start the server:
$ redshift-console runserver Starting server on port 5000 (debug mode: False).
$ docker run -e REDSHIFT_CONNECTION_STRING="user= password= host= port=5439 dbname=" -p 5000:5000 everythingme/redshift_console Starting server on port 5000 (debug mode: False).
