Submission + - Snowflake query diagramming tool (

alxtoth writes: There is a new open source tool that parses SQL Select statements and generates a diagram. It shows parts of the underlying SQL directly in the diagram. For example x=30 , GROUP BY (year), SUM(sales), HAVING MIN(age) > 18. The primary reason for the tool was to avoid cartesian joins and loops in SQL written by hand, with many joined tables. The database will execute such a syntactically correct statement, resulting in runaway queries that can bring the database down. If you sit close to the DBA's, you can hear them screaming ..
