System Views

System views contain a subset of data found in several of the STL and STV system tables.

These views provide quicker and easier access to commonly queried data found in those tables.


The SVL_QUERY_SUMMARY view only contains information about queries executed by Amazon Redshift, not other utility and DDL commands. For a complete listing and information on all statements executed by Amazon Redshift, including DDL and utility commands, you can query the SVL_STATEMENTTEXT view
