The diskspace_* tables store diskspace metrics.

  • diskspace_now is an external table whose data files are stored in $MASTER_DATA_DIRECTORY/gpperfmon/data. Current diskspace metrics are stored in database_now during the period between data collection from the gpperfmon agents and automatic commitment to the diskspace_history table.
  • diskspace_tail is an external table whose data files are stored in $MASTER_DATA_DIRECTORY/gpperfmon/data. This is a transitional table for diskspace metrics that have been cleared from diskspace_now but has not yet been committed to diskspace_history. It typically only contains a few minutes worth of data.
  • diskspace_history is a regular table that stores historical diskspace metrics. It is pre-partitioned into monthly partitions. Partitions are automatically added in two month increments as needed.
