QueryTool is a powerful database interrogation tool that connects to our cloud based data services.
It gives you access to the full history of NEM, STTM, VicGas, and BOM data.

QueryTool main features

  • Its a desktop app that connects over the web to IES data servers hosted in Google Cloud Services in Australia.
  • Very fast and handles huge data queries over millions of rows.
  • Data service lets you automate the running of queries and collecting data in other programs like Excel, Matlab, R and Python.
  • Unlimited use. Install it at work or home and have ready access.
  • Access the full history of Australian NEM, STTM, DWGM, and BOM data.
  • Instantly sort millions of rows on any column. Sorting is handled locally so its very fast.
  • Export as CSV.
  • Runs standard MySQL 5.7 queries.

SQL Data Service

  • You don't need to run QueryTool to access the cloud based QueryTool service. You can run SQL queries from most third party applications like Python, Excel, PowerBI, Matlab and R.
  • Data is returned as CSV which can be loaded by most third party programs.
  • The service can handle large queries > 10M rows.
  • The sample code on the right shows how to run a query and import the data into Python.
  • See Data Services for more details.
# Imports
import requests
import io
import pandas

# Query to run
query = '''select `SETTLEMENTDATE`, `RUNNO`, `REGIONID`, `PERIODID`, `RRP`, `EEP`,
`PRICE_STATUS` from mms.tradingprice where SETTLEMENTDATE between '2018-11-01' and '2018-11-02' limit 0, 10000'''

# payload for POST request
url = 'http://www.nempoint.com/data/query'
data = { 'query': query, 'key':'abc123', 'format':'csv'}

# Send HTTP request
response = requests.post(url, data=data)# Note do NOT use params=data as this serialises to the URL!

# Parse the response
data = pandas.read_csv(io.StringIO(response.content.decode('utf-8')))

Other features

  • Includes a schema view that shows you meta data COMMENTS.
  • Events view shows all queries run so far and allows copying them.
  • Can open multiple tabs so you can run multiple queries and quickly switch between result sets.
