Question about TIMESTAMP automatic initialization

Please look at the following:

memsql> show partitions;

| Ordinal | Host      | Port | Role   | Locked |
+---------+-----------+------+--------+--------+
|       0 | 127.0.0.1 | 3307 | Master |      0 |
|       1 | 127.0.0.1 | 3307 | Master |      0 |
...
|      19 | 127.0.0.1 | 3307 | Master |      0 |
+---------+-----------+------+--------+--------+
20 rows in set (0.00 sec)

memsql> drop table test_table;

The automatically initialized in_ts timetamp is the start time of the load data.
Can record at the time the load completes (ie. finish time)?

Thank you.

Hello kyoungho.kum

The column in_ts has a default current_timestamp and the column will have a value which is when the actual insert happened. That is seen from your output because each row does have a different value.

Since the column has a default, there is no way for you to insert an end timestamp value for it.

Can you run this query and verify when the last row was inserted?
select max(in_ts) from test_table;

Thanks,

Thank you.
Happy new year!!

I understand the following:
“there is no way for you to insert an end timestamp value for it.”

For your reference, attach our results.
