Execution Trace Information

When executing a query using the Administration tool, you can see a graphical representation of the execution trace of the query, by clicking the button View execution trace.

The following tables explain the meaning of the information provided by the trace:

Icons of the execution trace and their meaning
Icon Meaning
image0 Flatten
image1 Group By
image2 Interface
image3 Intersection
image4 Join
image5 Minus
image6 Projection
image7 Selection
image8 Subquery
image9 Union
image10 Void. This branch of the execution plan has not been executed.
image11 Intermediate results were swapped to disk
image12 Data was obtained from the cache of the view.

The node has additional information such as:

  • A function / operation cannot be delegated to the data source
  • The selection has not been executed because it contains incompatible conditions
image14 Route plan
image15 Virtual Plan: node that appears in the execution trace when the execution of a derived view is entirely pushed down to the data source.
image16 Root node of SELECT INTO queries. It indicates that the results of the query have been inserted in a materialized table (see section Materialized Tables of the VQL Guide)
image17 Data Movement. It indicates that the data obtained from a view has been “temporary” inserted into another data source. The section Data Movement explains the Data Movement optimization.
image18 and image19 JDBC data source and base view
image20 and image21 ODBC data source and base view
image22 and image23 Multidimensional data source
image24 and image25 Web service data source
image26 and image27 XML data source
image28 and image29 JSON data source
image30 and image31 DF data source
image32 and image33 WWW data source (ITPilot)
image34 and image35 LDAP data source
image36 and image37 Aracne data source
image38 and image39 Google Search data source
image40 and image41 BAPI data source (SAP ERP)
image42 and image43 Custom data source (Custom wrapper)
image44 and image45 Stored procedure

The following table lists the possible values of the attribute “State” of the nodes of a query’s execution trace.

Values of the “State” attribute of the nodes of a query’s execution trace
Status Meaning
INIT The query has started, but the node has not begun processing any result.
PROCESSING The node is currently processing results generated by the nodes below.
STOPPED The execution was cancelled by the user.
OK The execution of the node finished correctly.
ERROR There was an error during the execution of the query.

The Server requested a thread to the Threads Pool, but the timeout was reached before obtaining one.

You can increase the timeout of the threads in the “Thread Pool” dialog of the “Administration > Server configuration” menu.


The Server has reached the maximum number of threads.

You can increase the maximum number of threads in the “Thread Pool” dialog of the “Administration > Server configuration” menu.

PARSE_ERROR There was an error while parsing the input data. E.g., the query involves a JSON base view and the input JSON document is not well formed.
INVALID_ROUTE The connection details of the data source are not valid.
CONNECTION_ERROR There was an error while trying to connect with the source. E.g., the view queries a Web service base view and the Web service server cannot be reached.

The query reached the timeout.

All the clients of the Virtual DataPort server establish a timeout for the queries. That applies to clients that connect to Virtual DataPort via JDBC and ODBC and to the Administration Tool.

To change the query timeout of the Administration Tool, open the “Connection” tab of the “Tools > Admin Tool preferences” menu.

Read the sections “Access through JDBC” and “Access through ODBC” of the Developer Guide to know how to change the query timeout of JDBC or ODBC clients.

LICENSE_QUERY_TIMEOUT The query reached the timeout set by the current license of the Denodo Platform.
ROW_LIMIT_REACHED The execution finished correctly but not all the rows of the result set have been returned. That is because the query contains the LIMIT clause or the query has been executed from the “Execute view” dialog with the “Stop query when the limit is reached” check box selected.
ENOUGH_ROWS_RETRIEVED The node was stopped because no more rows from this node were needed to complete the request.
INTERFACE_NOT_IMPLEMENTED The query failed because the query involves an interface view that does not have an implementation view assigned.
INCOMPATIBLE_QUERY_VIEW The node was not executed because the simplification engine detected that the selected query will not return results
CACHE_LOAD_ERROR The cache load process finished with error
