After successful configuration of your channel, Chaos Genius will send you daily alerts regarding your Snowflake usage, including information about any anomalies detected in the system.
The message is divided into three main sections:
1. Anomalies & Failures
Under this section, customers will find the following sub-sections:
Warehouse UsageThis subsection presents data about warehouses that have experienced anomalous spike in credit usage on that day.
Warehouse Idle CreditsThis subsection provides information on warehouses that are incurring cost due to idle credits.
Warehouse PerformanceThis subsection displays information on warehouses that have had an anomalous spike in their performance metrics: Avg. Queued Time, Remote Spillage and Local Spillage.
User ActivityThis subsection provides information on the anomalous activity of different users on the system.
Query UsageThis subsection displays the cost of failed queries and the total number of queries that have taken more than 5 hours to execute. It also includes specific details about the queries that have taken longer than 5 hours to execute, such as their execution time, warehouse used, user, cost, and Snowflake QueryID.
Pipe File Transfer Failure RateThis subsection lists all SnowPipes whose file transfer failure rate is significantly high.
2. Overall Usage
The Overall section provides a summary of the total credits used and their distribution by services, including Warehouse Metering, Auto Clustering, Pipe, etc. It also reports the total number of queries executed on that day.
3. Access and Governance
In this section, users will find comprehensive information about their Snowflake account management. This includes in-depth visibility across objects such as warehouses, users, and roles.
Users will receive notifications whenever a new warehouse is created or modified, ensuring they stay informed about any changes made to their account. Similarly, alerts will be triggered when new roles and users are added, enabling the customer to track any modification in their account infrastructure. Furthermore, the alert message will provide a list of users who have experienced a high number of login failures.
