      Description

      For queries that involve more than one level of unnesting with complex/nested types the explain output can be tricky to read and reason about. The SUBPLAN node produces a tree shape that's not quite the same as other node types. In particular it can be tricky to understand what a SINGULAR ROW SRC node is acting on or producing.

      Currently the explain output for a SINGULAR ROW SRC doesn't provide any reference on what it's doing. It may not be a guarantee but leaf nodes in an Impala plan tree are usually annotated with the input source they are working on in square brackets "[]", for example SCAN and UNNEST nodes, but SINGULAR ROW SRC provides no such annotation. It would be great to fix this so that in explain strings.

      SINGULAR ROW SRC 

      becomes

      SINGULAR ROW SRC [input]

      Take the query below (SET EXPLAIN_LEVEL=3):

       

      Query: explain select c_custkey, o_orderkey, l_partkey from customer c, c.c_orders o, o.o_lineitems as li

      It's easy to figure out what node 05 is doing but kind of tricky to understand what 02 is doing.

      One option would be for 02 to have the following annotation or something else more informative:

       

      SINGULAR ROW SRC [c.c_orders o, o.o_lineitems li]
