A MilvusClient interface. This method gets the information of persistent segments from data node, including row count, persistence state (growing or flushed), and more.

R<GetPersistentSegmentInfoResponse> getPersistentSegmentInfo(GetPersistentSegmentInfoParam requestParam);


Use the GetPersistentSegmentInfoParam.Builder to construct a GetPersistentSegmentInfoParam object.

import io.milvus.param.GetPersistentSegmentInfoParam;
GetPersistentSegmentInfoParam.Builder builder = GetPersistentSegmentInfoParam.newBuilder();

Methods of GetPersistentSegmentInfoParam.Builder:

Method Description Parameters
withCollectionName(String collectionName) Sets the collection name. Collection name cannot be empty or null. collectionName: The name of the collection.
build() Constructs a GetPersistentSegmentInfoParam object. N/A

The can throw the following exceptions:

  • ParamException: error if the parameter is invalid.


This method catches all the exceptions and returns an R<GetPersistentSegmentInfoResponse> object.

  • If the API fails on the server side, it returns the error code and message from the server.

  • If the API fails by RPC exception, it returns R.Status.Unknown and the error message of the exception.

  • If the API succeeds, it returns a valid GetPersistentSegmentInfoResponse held by the R template. The GetPersistentSegmentInfoResponse object contains a list of PersistentSegmentInfo, and you can use PersistentSegmentInfo.getState() to get the state of the segment.


package io.milvus.grpc;
public enum SegmentState
Type Code Description
SegmentStateNone 0 For internal usage.
NotExist 1 For internal usage.
Growing 2 A growing segment in query node.
Sealed 3 The segment is sealed and waiting to be flushed.
Flushed 4 The segment has been flushed to storage.
Flushing 5 The server is flushing this segment.
Dropped 6 The segment has been marked as deleted.
Importing 7 Reserved for bulkinsert interface.
