Kill queries

KILL QUERY can terminate the query being executed, and is often used to terminate slow queries.


KILL QUERY (session=<session_id>, plan=<plan_id>);
  • session_id: The ID of the session.
  • plan_id: The ID of the execution plan.

The ID of the session and the ID of the execution plan can uniquely determine a query. Both can be obtained through the SHOW QUERIES statement.


This example executes KILL QUERY in one session to terminate the query in another session.

nebula> KILL QUERY(SESSION=1625553545984255,PLAN=163);

The query will be terminated and the following information will be returned.

[ERROR (-1005)]: Execution had been killed
