See My Pings

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.

Steps to Viewing Your Pings

  1. Get your clientId from whatever product you're using. For desktop, it's available in about:telemetry.

  2. Go STMO.

  3. 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 client_id 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.
