NAME

Pg::Explain - Object approach at reading explain analyze output

VERSION

Version 0.69

SYNOPSIS

Quick summary of what the module does.

Perhaps a little code snippet.

    use Pg::Explain;

    my $explain = Pg::Explain->new('source_file' => 'some_file.out');
    ...

    my $explain = Pg::Explain->new(
        'source' => 'Seq Scan on tenk1  (cost=0.00..333.00 rows=10000 width=148)'
    );
    ...

FUNCTIONS

source

Returns original source (text version) of explain.

source_filtered

Returns filtered source explain.

Currently there are only two filters:

  • remove quotes added by pgAdmin3

  • remove + character at the end of line, added by default psql config.

new

Object constructor.

Takes one of (only one!) (source, source_file) parameters, and either parses it from given source, or first reads given file.

top_node

This method returns the top node of parsed plan.

For example - in this plan:

                           QUERY PLAN
 --------------------------------------------------------------
  Limit  (cost=0.00..0.01 rows=1 width=4)
    ->  Seq Scan on test  (cost=0.00..14.00 rows=1000 width=4)

top_node is Pg::Explain::Node element with type set to 'Limit'.

Generally every output of plans should start with ->top_node(), and descend recursively in it, using subplans(), initplans() and sub_nodes() methods.

parse_source

Internally (from ->BUILD()) called function which checks which parser to use (text, json, xml, yaml), runs appropriate function, and stores top level node in $self->top_node.

_read_source_from_file

Helper function to read source from file.

as_text

Returns parsed plan back as plain text format (regenerated from in-memory structure).

This is mostly useful for (future at the moment) anonymizations.

anonymize

Used to remove all individual values from the explain, while still retaining all values that are needed to see what's wrong.
