Snowflake Data Quality Monitoring

In the world of data management, ensuring the quality and integrity of data is of paramount importance. Snowflake’s Data Quality Monitoring feature provides a comprehensive solution for monitoring and reporting on the quality of data. Let’s delve into the key aspects of Snowflake Data Quality Monitoring and its significance.

  • Data Quality Monitoring Features: Snowflake’s Data Quality Monitoring offers built-in metrics such as null counts, time since the object was last updated, and count of rows inserted into an object. Additionally, customers can create custom metrics to monitor the quality of data.
  • Enterprise Edition Requirement: Data Quality and data metric functions (DMFs) are available to all accounts that are Enterprise Edition or higher.
  • Data Metric Functions (DMFs): Data Quality utilizes data metric functions (DMFs) to monitor the state and integrity of data. These functions include Snowflake-provided system DMFs and user-defined DMFs, which can measure key metrics such as data freshness, counts of duplicates, NULLs, rows, and unique values.
  • Monitoring and Reporting: Once assigned to a table or view, Snowflake records the results of calling the DMF in the event table for the account. Users can define the frequency at which the DMF is automatically measured and configure alerts to receive email notifications when quality thresholds are violated.
  • Billing and Pricing: Snowflake manages the virtual warehouse objects to support the Data Quality Monitoring feature. The credits used for this feature are listed in the “Data Quality Monitoring” category on the monthly bill. Billing occurs only when a scheduled data metric function is computed on an object.
