Table and column usage


The Usage analytics feature is available for Snowflake, and will soon be available for Redshift and BigQuery customers. To request beta access, please e-mail the Metaplane team at [email protected], or send us a message in chat or Slack.

Metaplane analyzes your query history to determine how often tables/views, and columns within those tables/views, are being queried. These usage analytics drill down to the role and user, so you know who is using what data, and when.

The goal is to support three use cases:

  1. Helping prioritize work, whether it is refactoring frequently used models or deleting unused models
  2. Monitoring usage on tables over time
  3. Suggesting tests on highly used tables
