Display Canceled Queries

We can cancel a long running query in vsql by typing CTRL+C. The data collector table DC_CANCELS tracks queries that were stopped in this manner.

Example:

dbadmin=> SELECT table_name, component, description
dbadmin->   FROM data_collector
dbadmin->   WHERE component = 'Cancels';
table_name | component |   description
------------+-----------+------------------
dc_cancels | Cancels   | Canceled queries
(1 row)

dbadmin=> SELECT * FROM dc_cancels;
time | node_name | session_id | user_id | txn_id | user_name | active_query | reason
------+-----------+------------+---------+--------+-----------+--------------+--------
(0 rows)

Now I will run a simple SQL statement and hit CTRL+C after waiting for 2 seconds:

dbadmin=> SELECT SLEEP(30);
Cancel request sent
SLEEP
-------
    28
(1 row)

dbadmin=> \x
Expanded display is on.

dbadmin=> SELECT * FROM dc_cancels;

reason       | Session canceled on the initiator
