About compilation time

Thank you Jannie,
By using explore I can see the mat version of the query. 
In software stack page, https://www.monetdb.org/Documentation/Manuals/MonetDB/Architecture/SoftwareStack it is written that
Outputs of both the first and the second layer are MAL expressions. So do you have any idea about which layer does the EXPLORE command MAL output belongs to?
I am especially interested in the process between query submission and actual execution. So can you suggest me a starting point in the source code to explore more?
Thank you,
Mustafa Korkmaz

Hai Mustafa,

I’m not aware that monetdb directly gives you this information.  what you could try is to prefix your query with PLAN or EXPLAIN, which will limit a monetdb server to only generate the logical or physical execution plan for the query. Do this with client and server on the same machine, send the output to /dev/null, then you can measure the wall clock time.  This should give you something usable.

For only the parsing time, I’m afraid you need to dig into the source code to add timing…

Not sure what parsing/compilation details you’re looking for, but you can have a look at the output of PLAN and EXPLAIN anyway.
