Information about the YQL Call

To get information about the execution of the YQL call, check the attributes of the query element and the sub-elements of the diagnostics element.

The following table lists the attributes of the query element in an XML response. In a JSON response, these attributes are mapped to the name-value pairs contained in the query object.

Attribute of query Element Description
count The number of items (rows) in returned by the YQL statement. In an XML response, count is the number of sub-elements in the results element.
created The date and time the response was created.
lang The locale for the response.
updated The date and time this response was last updated.

The diagnostics element contains information about the calls the YQL Web service made to back-end datasources. The following table lists the XML sub-elements of the diagnostics element. In a JSON response, these sub-elements are mapped to name-value pairs contained in the diagnostics object.

Sub-element of diagnostics Element Description
publiclyCallable True if the table is public data, false for private data. Authorization is required for private data.
url The URL of the Web service called by YQL to get the data. The value of the execution-time attribute is elapsed time, in milliseconds required to call the URL.
user-time The time YQL takes to perform the request and return the result, including time taken to execute Javascript. This is the time that you wait for each YQL statement response.
service-time The time YQL would take if each request were sequentially performed. YQL performs most request-related actions in parallel, so this measurement is informational only.
