system.metrics 

Contains metrics which can be calculated instantly, or have a current value. For example, the number of simultaneously processed queries or the current replica delay. This table is always up to date.

Columns:

  • metric (String) — Metric name.
  • value (Int64) — Metric value.
  • description (String) — Metric description.

The list of supported metrics you can find in the src/Common/CurrentMetrics.cpp source file of ClickHouse.

Example

SELECT * FROM system.metrics LIMIT 10
