How can I connect my Snowflake
account to Arctica?
To help you analyze Snowflake usage patterns and monitor your costs, Arctica needs some information about the way you use Snowflake. For example: what type of queries do you typically run, at what times and by whom
This is your exists [SNOWFLAKE] database.
This is a new database-used solely for
sharing account data with Arctica
No actual data (i.e. from your data tables) is being shared with Arctica. Only information about the use of Snowflake is being shared. For example: query execution times, utilization of warehouses etc.
What does the installation script do?
Create a new database for the shared information
Creates a new database called “Arctica Share” in your account
Create a process (stored procedure) to keep the information updated
Creates a new stored procedure to regularly sync information into the “Arctica Share” database using SNOWFLAKE PROCEDURE
Make sure that the updating process is running regularly (scheduled)
Schedules the stored procedure to run every X hours using SNOWFLAKE TASK
Up Until this point, no information was shared with Arctica.
