Debug

For the purposes of debugging, you can attach a query parameter debug=true to a query. Attaching this parameter lets you retrieve the uid attribute for all the entities along with the server_latency and start_ts information under the extensions key of the response.

  • parsing_ns: Latency in nanoseconds to parse the query.
  • processing_ns: Latency in nanoseconds to process the query.
  • encoding_ns: Latency in nanoseconds to encode the JSON response.
  • start_ts: The logical start timestamp of the transaction.

Query with debug as a query parameter

curl -H "Content-Type: application/graphql+-" http://localhost:8080/query?debug=true -XPOST -d $'{
  tbl(func: allofterms([email protected], "The Big Lebowski")) {
    [email protected]
  }
}' | python -m json.tool | less
