Service Explorer

Timescale Cloud Service Explorer provides a rich administrative dashboard for understanding the state of your database instance. The Explorer gives you insight into the performance of your database, giving you greater confidence and control over your data.

The Explorer works like an operations center as you develop and run your applications on TimescaleDB. It gives you quick access to the key properties of your database, like table sizes, schema definitions, and foreign key references, as well TimescaleDB specific information, like information on your hypertables and continuous aggregates.

You can see the Explorer in your Timescale Cloud account by navigating to the Services section, clicking the service you want to explore, and selecting the Explorer tab.

General information

In the General information section of the Explorer, you can see a high-level summary of your TimescaleDB database, including all your hypertables and relational tables. It summarizes your overall compression ratios, and other policy and continuous aggregate data. And, if you aren't already using key features like TimescaleDB's native compression, continuous aggregates, or other automation policies and actions, it provides pointers to tutorials and documentation to help you get started.


In the Tables section of the Explorer, you can see a detailed look into all your tables, including information about table schemas, table indexes, and foreign keys. For your hypertables, it shows details about chunks, continuous aggregates, and policies such as data retention policies and data reordering. You can also inspect individual hypertables, including their sizes, dimension ranges, and compression status.

For more information about hypertables, see our hypertables section.

Continuous aggregates

In the Continuous aggregate section, you can see all your continuous aggregates, including top-level information such as their size, whether they are configured for real-time aggregation, and their refresh periods.

For more information about continuous aggregates, see our continuous aggregates section.
