So you want to see what you're sending the telemetry pipeline, huh? Well follow these steps and we'll have you perusing your own data in no time.
clientIdfrom whatever product you're using. For desktop, it's available in
Enter the following query:
SELECT submission_timestamp, document_id FROM telemetry_live.main_v4 -- or crash, event, core, etc WHERE submission_timestamp > TIMESTAMP_SUB(CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(), INTERVAL 3 HOUR) AND client_id = '<your_client_id>' ORDER BY submission_timestamp DESC LIMIT 10
This will show you the timestamp and document id of the ten most recent
main pings you've sent in the last 3 hours.
You may include any other fields here that might be of interest to you.
The tables in the
telemetry_live dataset have only a few minutes of
latency, so you can query those tables for pings from your
with minimal additional waiting.
One thing to note is that BigQuery has its own query cache, so if you run the same query several times in a row, it may fetch results from its cache. You can make any change at all (such as adding a comment) to force the query to run again and fetch updated results.
