Usage Notes

  • Latency for the view may be up to 180 minutes (3 hours).

  • If you want to reconcile the data in this view with a corresponding view in the ORGANIZATION USAGE schema, you must first set the timezone of the session to UTC. Before querying the Account Usage view, execute:

    ALTER SESSION SET TIMEZONE = UTC;

  • Snowflake bills for auto-refresh notifications in external tables and directory tables on external stages at a rate equivalent to the Snowpipe file charge. You can estimate charges incurred by your external table and directory table auto-refresh notifications by examining this PIPE_USAGE_HISTORY view or querying the PIPE_USAGE_HISTORY function. Note that the auto-refresh pipes will be listed under a NULL pipe name. You can also view your external table auto-refresh notification history at the table-level/stage-level granularity by using the Information Schema table function AUTO_REFRESH_REGISTRATION_HISTORY.

    To avoid charges for auto-refresh notifications, perform a manual refresh for external tables and directory tables. For external tables, the ALTER EXTERNAL TABLE <name> REFRESH … statement can be used to manually synchronize your external table to external storage. For directory tables, the ALTER STAGE <name> REFRESH … statement can be used to manually synchronize the directory to external storage.
