Collect statistics operator

The Airflow collect statistics operator DqopsCollectStatisticsOperator is used to gather statistics for existing tables in DQOps platform.

You can learn more about the basic data statistics here.

Operator parameters

Parameters allow selection of specific connections, tables and columns which statistics should be loaded.

Name Description Type
connection The connection name to the data source in DQOps. Union[Unset, str]
full_table_name The name of the table with it's schema name. Union[Unset, str]
enabled If set to true only enabled connections and tables are filtered. Otherwise only disabled connection or table are used. Union[Unset, bool]
labels The label names of those edited by user on connections, tables and columns edited in DQOps platform. Union[Unset, List[str]]
column_names The names of columns. Union[Unset, List[str]]
sensor_name The name of the sensor. Union[Unset, str]
target The name of the target which value is column or table. Union[Unset, StatisticsCollectorTarget]
base_url The base url to DQOps application. Default value is http://localhost:8888/, which is the instance of DQOps started locally str
job_business_key Job business key that is a user assigned unique job id, used to check the job status by looking up the job by a user assigned identifier, instead of the DQOps assigned job identifier. Union[Unset, None, str] = UNSET
wait_timeout The number of seconds the client will wait for activity before terminating the idle task. If not set, the timeout is read from the client’s default value, which is set to 120 seconds. int
fail_on_timeout By default, exceeding the timeout limit causes the status of the task to end with the Failed status. By setting the flag of this parameter to True, the status of the failed task will result in the Success status. bool [optional, default=True]

Above parameters are the only parameters that are the addition to the standard parameters of BaseOperator, from which the described operator inherits. For the complete list of parameters that are supported by BaseOperator, visit the official Airflow webpage

Set up the operator

Entry requirements includes:

  • Installation of python package from PyPi called dqops
  • Configuration of data source in DQOps.

DAG example

The example sets a task to receive status from the monitoring checks set on the "maven_restaurant_ratings.consumers" table from "example_connection". The operator connects to the locally started DQOps server.

import datetime
import pendulum
from airflow import DAG
from dqops.airflow.collect_statistics.dqops_collect_statistics_operator import DqopsCollectStatisticsOperator

with DAG(
    start_date=pendulum.datetime(2023, 1, 1, tz="UTC"),
) as dag:
    import_table_task = DqopsCollectStatisticsOperator(

Execution results

Airflow DAG provides logs to the executed tasks. The status details will appear in a one line as an info level log from the operator, which contains a JSON formatted response from DQOps presented below.

  'jobId': {
    'jobId': 1698474026000000, 
    'createdAt': '2023-10-28T06:20:26.215682800Z'
  'result': {
    'executed_statistics_collectors': 69, 
    'total_collectors_executed': 0, 
    'columns_analyzed': 5, 
    'columns_successfully_analyzed': 5, 
    'total_collectors_failed': 0, 
    'total_collected_results': 186, 
    'source_table_specs': []
  'status': 'succeeded'

Technically, the executed operator returns the CollectStatisticsQueueJobResult object with status details. When the task execution succeeds or not, the task instance in Airflow will be marked as Success or Failed accordingly.

CollectStatisticsQueueJobResult includes:

  • job_id (DqoQueueJobId): Identifies a single job that was pushed to the job queue.
  • result (CollectStatisticsResult): Returns the result with the summary of the collected statistics.
  • status (DqoJobStatus): The job status.

Job id

Job id has a type of DqoQueueJobId which includes job tracking details:

name description type
job_id Job id. int
parent_job_id Identifies a single job that was pushed to the job queue. DqoQueueJobId
created_at The timestamp when the job was created. int

Collect statistics result

Property name Description Data type
executed_statistics_collectors The total count of all executed statistics collectors. integer
total_collectors_executed The count of executed statistics collectors. integer
columns_analyzed The count of columns for which DQOps executed a collector and tried to read the statistics. integer
columns_successfully_analyzed The count of columns for which DQOps managed to obtain statistics. integer
total_collectors_failed The count of statistics collectors that failed to execute. integer
total_collected_results The total number of results that were collected. integer


Status field is the DqoJobStatus enum, which have one of values:

  • cancelled: The job was fully cancelled and removed from the job queue.
  • cancel_requested: A request to cancel a job was issued, but the job is not yet cancelled.
  • failed: The job has failed with an execution error.
  • queued: The job is queued.
  • running: The job is now running.
  • succeeded: The job has finished successfully.
  • waiting: The job is parked until the concurrency constraints are met.
