Unix service to suspend the snowflake warehouses smartly to cut the cost.

Project Description

Snowflake-Smart-Suspend intelligently suspends the running warehouse which are not being used and reaching hour boundary. Currently designed for warehouses with auto-resume enabled and without auto-suspend for better optimisation.

Usage and Details


pip install snowflake-smart-suspend

Typical usage often looks like this:

smart_suspend start -c connections -r <role which has access to warehouses of interest> -s 55 -i 30 -w <space separated list of warehouses>

You can find the details about all the options with:

smart_suspend -h
smart_suspend --help


If you have snowsql installed and running on the server smart-suspend will work out of the box If not you will have to have file at location HOME/.snowsql/config with snowflake cred:

accountname = <account name>
username = <username>
password = <password>


Logs could be find in /var/log/smartsuspend/system.log. You might need to adjust the permissions to log directory during installation.
