Getting live data using a Real-time connection

The following steps are involved in setting up an Unravel account for Snowflake using the Real-time connection.

  1. Access the Unravel UI using the login credentials you received in the email when you created the Unravel Snowflake free account. The data fields are empty when you access Unravel UI for the first time.

  2. Click manage1.png on the upper right side and select Snowflake configuration.

  3. Select the Real-time option.

  4. Enter the following details:



    Snowflake account


    Enter the username to access the Snowflake account.


    Enter the passcode to access the Snowflake account.


    Specify the Snowflake user account from where you want to get live data for monitoring.


    Specify a role associated with this user account for Unravel to access the correct Snowflake data warehouse.


    Database name

    Specify the Snowflake database where Unravel accesses metadata.

    Schema name

    Specify the Snowflake schema in your database.

    Warehouse name

    Specify a warehouse from where Unravel can fetch metadata (monitor and telemetry data). The minimum warehouse size required by Unravel is X-small.

    Look back

    Set the number of days, in the past, from today for which the metadata should be fetched.

    Set Snowflake credit cost

    Credit cost

    Set the USD cost of your Snowflake credits.

  5. Click Save to save the settings. After you save the setting, Unravel connects to the configured Snowflake account and starts polling the data. New data can be seen on the Queries and Warehouse pages on Unravel UI. The duration of the entire data loading process depends on both the volume of data and the specified look-back period.
