perl DBI

Hi,

     I have some SOL queries  like
select a,b from table a ;
select * from table b;
....... like 2000 such queries.
I am executing those queries through Perl.

Some of the queries are taking more than 10 minutes .
I want all those such queries which are taking more than 2 minutes .
How this can be achieved ?
I am using
DBD-DB2'   => '1.76-9.5.4',
 'DBI'       => '1.609',
                  '

Well, since you're talking about a large chunk of time, you don't need to use Time::HiRes and can get away with just using time().

Maybe something like this would work for you:
foreach my $query (@queries) {  # assuming you have all queries in an array
   my $start = time;
   $dbh->execute($query);
   my $end = time;
   my $diff = $end - $start;
   if ($diff > 120) {
      print "$diff seconds - Query took too long\n";
      print "-" x 70;
      print "\n$query\n";
      print "-" x 70;
      print "\n\n";
   }
}

If your queries are all spread throughout a big program, what I would do is replace my calls to "$dbh->execute(...);" with a call to a subroutine, something like "my_execute($dbh, $query);" this (very similar, just as a subroutine and not a loop).  You can always go back and modify the subroutine to NOT do the check when you're done with it.
 
sud my_execute {
   my $dbh = shift;
   my $query = shift;
   my $start = time;
   $dbh->execute($query);
   my $end = time;
   my $diff = $end - $start;
   if ($diff > 120) {
      print "$diff seconds - Query took too long\n";
      print "-" x 70;
      print "\n$query\n";
      print "-" x 70;
      print "\n\n";
   }
}

Open in new window

sub my_execute {
   my $dbh = shift;
   my $query = shift;
   my $start = time;
   $dbh->execute($query);
   my $end = time;
   my $diff = $end - $start;
   if ($diff > 120) {
      print "$diff seconds - Query took too long\n";
      print "-" x 70;
      print "\n$query\n";
      print "-" x 70;
      print "\n\n";
   }
}

But this way I need to execute all the query at least once.our DBA complains if we fire queries which takes more than 10 mins.
What I need
foreach @query
alarm 600
dbh->execute ;

if dbh returns within 600 sends
reset alarm

else kill the dbh-execute()

Ah! Sorry, I misinterpreted your question - I thought you were trying to weed out queries that ran more than 2 mins so you would never run them again.

Would it be possible to just let your program run (making sure to check returns and error codes of any queries, of course!) and have a separate program that just repeatedly and periodically runs "mysqladmin proc" and kills any of your queries whose "Time" column is showing more than 10 minutes? (kill with "mysqladmin kill <id>").

I do know that there's no nice/easy way to kill off a DBI session (perhaps using fork/exec, but that seems even messier) within a Perl script.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

nemws1, I don't think the poster is using mysql, since the original post says "I am using DBD-DB2'.  Perhaps this should be posted to the db2 forum to see if there is a way to kill long running queries in that database.

schubach, you are absolutely correct - my mistake!

You can set the alarm:
http://search.cpan.org/~timb/DBI-1.616/DBI.pm#Signal_Handling_and_Canceling_Operations
describes how.

I think, in $SIG{ALRM} you will have to get a list of pending queries and then execute

$dbh->execute("CANCEL query_id");
Your DBA will surely help you providing the exact SQL to be executed.
