About this event

On behalf of and the Benelux User Group steering committee, we are delighted to invite you to the Picnic office on Wednesday, September 20th, for our next Snowflake Usergroup meeting.

Well-known in the Netherlands as a data-focused company with a startup environment, Picnic is welcoming the Snowflake community for the next Snowflake Benelux User Group meeting on Wednesday, September 20th. Picnic has a Single Source of Truth Lakeless Data Warehouse where data engineers play a key role in the future of online groceries. One of the things that make Picnic different is that they handle almost everything in-house, and Snowflake is an integral part of this setup. Join us to learn how they use tags to monitor query performance.

Session: Using Snowflake query tags for query performance monitoring

With thousands and even millions of queries running in Snowflake every day, it is essential to monitor query performance for optimization and cost-saving purposes. In this session, we will explain how we increased visibility for Snowflake query performance monitoring using query tags. We will talk about how query tags can be used to enhance query execution history with additional metadata and provide actionable insights for query performance analysis.
