Highlights of Recent PR

Support for TQL EXPLAIN and TQL ANALYZE clauses

  • TQL EXPLAIN (similar to EXPLAIN from SQL) doesn't execute the query but tells how the query would be executed.
  • TQL ANALYZE (similar to ANALYZE from SQL) executes the plan and tells the detailed per-step execution time.

Enable Tokio console

With the integration of tokio-console and GreptimeDB, as detailed in the Greptime Developer Guide, all tokio tasks can now be seamlessly displayed. This enhancement significantly aids in troubleshooting issues related to the tokio runtime.

Support for additional endpoints in Prometheus HTTP API

In addition to query and query_range endpoints, as Prometheus HTTP API describes, there are some other useful endpoints which will help Prometheus users to explore the metadata or details of the datasets. These endpoints will facilitate the seamless integration of GreptimeDB into various systems as a Prometheus service.

Here's an example:

curl 'localhost:9090/api/v1/labels'
    "status": "success",
    "data": [
