explain.depesz.com – update

I just modified the internals of explain.depesz.com. Now, it finally stores the plans in database (previously it stored the plans as files in dedicated directory).

Effect for enduser is just that history page should load faster.

But, having the data in database makes it possible to add more features.

One such feature is already added – ability to explain plan, but not list it on history page.

Right now, when you add new plan, you can specify if you want it to be listed with other previous explains – default value is “yes". But if you don't want just anybody to be able to click his way to your plan – there is option for it.

For obvious reasons all previous plans are marked as public now. If you want it to be changed, please contact me – we can probably do something about it.

And as last thing: I would like to express my big THANK YOU to all of you who use explain.depesz.com.

(side note: Catalyst is really cool)

explain.depesz.com – update

I just updated explain.depesz.com with the newest explain-parsing library version (Pg::Explain v 0.09).

This version will hit CPAN mirrors in next couple of hours.


  • Fix exclusive time calculations
  • Make PE::Node understand Bitmap scans (heap and index)
  • Add proper handling of nodes that were “never executed"
  • Add ->is_analyzed method to PE::Node to make it easy to distinguish between EXPLAIN and EXPLAIN ANALYZE nodes
