persistent class %SYS.ProcessQuery extends %Persistent, %SYSTEM.Help

This class allows manipulation and display of InterSystems IRIS processes running on the system.
An instance of the class can be opened by passing the PID (O/S process id) to the %OpenId Method. The PID is in decimal form ($J) for all platforms.

NOTE: Previous versions of this class allowed you to call the %OpenId method and pass in either a PID preceded by the letter "P", or a job number preceded by the letter "J". This functionality has been removed from the %OpenId() method, and moved to the new Open() method which supports this syntax.

For example, the following open a process with a PID of 2078:

s Process=##CLASS(%SYS.ProcessQuery).%OpenId("2078")
s Process=##CLASS(%SYS.ProcessQuery).Open("P2078")
s Process=##CLASS(%SYS.ProcessQuery).Open("2078")

The following will open Job number 23

s Process=##CLASS(%SYS.ProcessQuery).Open("J23")

Performance considerations:
When you use %OpenId() to examine a process, several mailbox messages will get sent to the process to return ALL of the properties for the object. On systems with lots of processes running, and you are collecting data for a lot of processes, this can cause a lot of overhead. The call to each %OpenId() in this case may actually take several seconds to complete. Most of a processes properties can be retrieved without the overhead of a mailbox message. See the description of the individual properties below for which properties require a mailbox message to be sent.
If you want to minimize overhead, you should use an SQL statement to select ONLY the data which you want returned. For example, here is some code which loops through all the processes on the system, and retrieves specific data for each process. Note that the properties which are returned in this example are ones which do not require a mailbox messages to be sent to the process being examined. Note that the %syPidtab.inc file needs to be included in your routine in order for the following code to compile cleanly.

#include %syPidtab
Set Rset = ##class(%ResultSet).%New("%SYS.ProcessQuery:ListPids")
d Rset.Execute()
While Rset.Next() {
&sql(SELECT CommandsExecuted,GlobalReferences INTO :CommandsExecuted,:GlobalReferences
FROM %SYS.ProcessQuery
WHERE Pid = :Rset.GetData(1))
i SQLCODE'=0 w !,"SQL Error "_SQLCODE continue ; 100 means process does not exist (halted)
w !,Rset.GetData(1)," ",CommandsExecuted," ",GlobalReferences
}
d Rset.Close()

Security considerations:
Any process can open an instance to their own process by passing the value of $J to the %OpenId() method:

s Process=##CLASS(%SYS.ProcessQuery).%OpenId($j)

If you wish to open another process, you must own the %Admin_Manage:Use resource, or have read or write access to the CACHESYS database. To minimize overhead in the %OpenId() method, having the %Admin_Manage:Use privilege is recommended.
This class has an SQL table called %SYS.ProcessQuery where you can execute an SQL query to return process data. For example you could execute the following queries:

Select * from %SYS.ProcessQuery - Return all information about all processes
Select * from %SYS.ProcessQuery where NameSpace = 'User" - Return all information about all processes in the USER namespace.
Note that in order to run this from an unprivileged user, you may need to grant privileges to that user on the table as follows:

GRANT SELECT ON %SYS.ProcessQuery TO _PUBLIC

Notes:
Replace _PUBLIC to a specific user or role name if you don't want everyone to have the privilege.
This is per-namespace. This needs to be executed in each namespace the table needs to be queried from.

Methods

• classmethod ExamStackByPid(Pid As %String, GetVariables As %Boolean = 0, Timeout As %Integer = 10) as %Status
Retrieve a snapshot of the execution stack and variables for a process in the same format as JOBEXAM.

Parameters:
Pid - Process ID ($J) of the process to examine
GetVariables - Flag to specify that all variables and their values should be returned
Timeout - How long to wait for the process to respond to the request

Return Value:
On success, the method will return an index of the ^mtemp global (greater than zero).
If an error occurs a status code is returned.
Note that, like JOBEXAM, the request will time out if the process is not executing commands.

The data in the ^mtemp node can be displayed by calling Show^%STACK(index).
It is the responsibility of the caller to Kill ^mtemp(index) when finished with the data.

The data is returned in these nodes of the ^mtemp(index) global:
("*STACK") = the number of stack levels
("*STACK",0,"V",SpecialVar) = the values of special variables such as $S and $ZE
("*STACK",level,"L") = the text line for this level, as displayed by %STACK or JOBEXAM
("*STACK",level,"S") = the source line for this level, with a tilde inserted in front of the current command
("*STACK",level,"I") = the internal data for this level

If variables are requested:
("*LEVEL",level,variable) = the base level of a variable that is visible at this level
("*NAMES",variable,base,level) - this is the same information as *LEVEL in a different format
("*STACK",base,"V",variable) = the value of the variable at its base level
• classmethod GetCPUTime() as %String
Get CPU time used for current process.

Returns two comma-delimited pieces, "system" CPU time and "user" CPU time (except on VMS where no separate times are available). Time is returned as milliseconds of CPU time.
• classmethod GetLoginRoutine(ByRef Label As %String, ByRef Routine As %String) as %Status
Get routine and label specified in process login.

Available only for the current process, you can not query another process. If a class method is passed on the command line then 'Label' will be the method name and 'Routine' will be the class name with a trailing '#' to identify it as a class.
• classmethod GetOSUsername() as %String
This method returns the OSUsername of the process as returned by the operating system. This method differs from the OSUsername property in that it is the actual username assigned to the process by the operating system.
• classmethod GetOpenDevices(Pid As %Integer) as %List
Get a $LIST of devices that a process has open.

Parameters:
Pid - Process ID ($J) of the process to examine

Return Value:
On success, the method will return a $LIST of devices that are currently open by the process. The principal device is the first item in the list. The current device has an asterisk appended to the name.
If an error occurs an empty string is returned.
• classmethod KillAllPrivateGlobals() as %Status
Kill all process private globals for the calling process.
• classmethod NextProcess(Pid As %String, Flag As %Integer = 0) as %String
Returns the next process pid on the system.
This is like a $order function on processes running on the system, similar to the way $ZJOB works. It differs from $zjob in one respect though. If the pid passed into the function has halted before this call, we will still return the next pid on the system. $zjob would return the first pid on the system in this case. Using $zjob in this way with lots of processes starting and halting could lead to inaccurate results. Flag=1 means pass in and return the internal decimal representation of a VMS pid ($zh(pid))
• classmethod Open(Id As %String, concurrency As %Integer = -1, ByRef sc As %Status = 1) as %ObjectHandle
Open an instance to a process.
This method will open an instance to a process by passing either a PID or Job number to the method. A Pid can either be directly passed in or prefaced with a "P". A Job number can be passed in prefaced by a "J".
The following open an instance to a process with a pid = 2078:
s Process=##CLASS(%SYS.ProcessQuery).Open("P2078")
s Process=##CLASS(%SYS.ProcessQuery).Open("2078")

The following will open Job number 23

s Process=##CLASS(%SYS.ProcessQuery).Open("J23")

Parameters:
Id - Pid or Job number to open
Concurrency - Pass -1 or use default
sc (by ref)- Status of the Open
Return values:
On success, the method returns an object handle to the opened process.
On failure, the method returns a null string, and an error in sc.

Queries

• query AllFields()
SQL Query :
SELECT * FROM %SYS.ProcessQuery
Returns ALL properties for a process
This query performs a Select * on %SYS.ProcessQuery SQL query. Note that this query uses a $v(-1,$j) mailbox message to query processes. This causes a lot of overhead, but is necessary in order to return all fields. Use the JOBEXAM, CONTROLPANEL, or SS query for less overhead. This query will change in future versions as field are added or removed.
• query CONTROLPANEL(JobNumber As %Integer = 1, Filter As %String = "")
Selects Job# As %Integer, Pid As %Integer, DisplayPID As %Integer, Username As %String, Device As %String, Nspace As %String, Routine As %String, Commands As %BigInt, Globals As %BigInt, State As %String, Client Name As %String, EXE Name As %String, IP Address As %String, Can Be Examined As %Boolean, Can Be Suspended As %Boolean, Can Be Terminated As %Boolean, Can Receive Broadcast As %Boolean, PrvGblBlkCnt As %Integer, OSUserName As %String
Returns fields for the Management Portal display
Note that this query does not use a $v(-1,$j) mailbox message to query processes. This avoids unecessary overhead. This query may change in future versions.
Parameters:
JobNumber - Job number of where to start the query, default = 1 (first job)
Filter - Display processes which contain this filter in the line, "" means display all. For example, if Filter="READ", this will only display processes which have the word "READ" in one of the columns.
• query CONTROLPANELVMS(JobNumber As %Integer = 1, Filter As %String = "")
Selects Job# As %Integer, Pid As %String, DisplayPID As %String, Username As %String, Device As %String, Nspace As %String, Routine As %String, Commands As %BigInt, Globals As %BigInt, State As %String, Client Name As %String, EXE Name As %String, IP Address As %String, Can Be Examined As %Boolean, Can Be Suspended As %Boolean, Can Be Terminated As %Boolean, Can Receive Broadcast As %Boolean, PrvGblBlkCnt As %Integer, OSUserName As %String
Same as CONTROLPANEL Query except that Pid column is a %string.
• query JOBEXAM(JobNumber As %Integer = 1)
Selects Job# As %Integer, Nspace As %String, Routine As %String, Commands As %BigInt, Globals As %BigInt, State As %String, Pid As %String, Current Device As %String
Returns fields for the JOBEXAM display.
Note that this query does not use a $v(-1,$j) mailbox message to query processes. This avoids unecessary overhead. This query may change in future versions.
Parameters:
JobNumber - Job number of where to start the query, default = 1 (first job)
• query ListPids(JobNumber As %Integer = 1)
Selects Pid As %String
Return PIDS for all processes running on the system.
This query returns the internal pid for each process on the system. This pid can then be passed directly to the %OpenId() method, or as an argument to an embedded SQL query which does a SELECT based on the Pid. See the example above for SQL useage.
Parameters:
JobNumber - Job number of where to start the query, default = 1 (first job)
• query PPG(filter As %String = "*", pid As %Integer = -1, options As %String = "")
Selects key, name As %String, value As %String, blocks As %String
Select information about Process Private Globals.

The 'filter' parameter can be a variable name definition and/or subscript definition, using * as wildcards. A filter name of '*' will return all PPG variables for that process id.
As an example of using the wildcards, a filter specification of "CUST*(12*,*COOP*" would mean return all PPG variables whose name starts with CUST, that have 2 or more subscripts, the first subscript must start with 12, the second subscript must contain COOP.

pid can be any valid process id, or -1 for the caller's process.

options can be one or more of the following characters
"N" Do not return subscripts of a PPG, just return the root name
"B" Return the number of blocks used by the PPG (needs the "N" option)
"b" Returns the number of bytes used by the PPG (needs the "N" option)

Example
set rs=##class(%ResultSet).%New("%SYS.ProcessQuery:PPG")
do rs.Execute("*",$J,"NB")
for {
q:'rs.Next()
w "PPG name "_rs.GetData(1)_" is using "_rs.GetData(3)_" disc blocks",!
}
This query requires the %Admin_Manage:Use permission to execute.

Returns fields for the %SS display
Note that this query does not use a $v(-1,$j) mailbox message to query processes. This avoids unecessary overhead. This query may change in future versions.
Parameters:
JobNumber - Job number of where to start the query, default = 1 (first job)

Parameters:
Sort - sort by "COMMANDS" (default) or "GLOREFS"
Number - number of processes to list. Default is 10 and max is 50

Note that the evaluation of the actual 'top' process list is handled by the Application Monitor (%MONAPP) using the %Monitor.System.Dashboard2 class. This is 'on' by default and can be managed using the %MONAPPMGR utility. Also, the counts of CommandsExecuted and GlobalReferences returned are for the latest sample period and not the total for the life of the process.
• query TopGlobal(Sort As %String = "REFS", Number As %Integer = 20, Seconds As %Integer = 5)
Selects Process As %Integer, User As %String, Namespace As %String, Routine As %String, JobType As %Integer, GloRefs As %BigInt, PhysReads As %Integer, GloUpdates As %Integer, BlkAlloc As %Integer, PPGBlks As %Integer
Returns the top Processes for certain types of database activity for the next 'n' seconds. The query can be sorted by one of the following properties: 'GlobalReferences', 'GlobalUpdates', 'GlobalDiskReads', 'GlobalBlocks', or 'PrivateGlobalBlockCount'.

Parameters:
Sort - sort by "REFS", "UPDATES", "READS", "BLOCKS", "PPG". Default is "REFS".
Number - number of processes to list. Default is 20.
Seconds - number of seconds to wait. Default is 5 seconds.

The query will fetch the values for all processes, wait for 'n' seconds, and then fetch the values again. It will return the list of the 'top' processes for the selected 'Sort' property, and the delta values for properties over that time period. Note that PrivateGlobalBlockCount is returned as the total number used, not a delta.
• query VariableByJobNumber(JobNumber, VariableName As %String, Format As %Integer, MaxRows As %Integer, Filter As %String)
Selects Name As %String, Value As %RawString
Returns the variables of a process
Pass VariableName as a null string to return all variables. This query requires the %Admin_Manage:Use permission to execute. Parameters:
