postgresql.activity.waiting

type: boolean

True if this backend is currently waiting on a lock.

postgresql.activity.state

Current overall state of this backend. Possible values are:

  • idle: The backend is waiting for a new client command.
  • idle in transaction: The backend is in a transaction, but is not currently executing a query.
  • idle in transaction (aborted): This state is similar to idle in transaction, except one of the statements in the transaction caused an error.
  • fastpath function call: The backend is executing a fast-path function.
  • disabled: This state is reported if track_activities is disabled in this backend.
postgresql.activity.query
Text of this backend’s most recent query. If state is active this field shows the currently executing query. In all other states, it shows the last query that was executed.
