Snowflake provides two types of system functions:
- Control functions that allow you to execute actions in the system (e.g. aborting a query).
- Information functions that return information about the system (e.g. calculating the clustering depth of a table).
Regardless of their type, all system functions are called using the following syntax:
... SYSTEM$function_name ( arguments ) ....
|Deprecated; use the other clustering functions instead.|
