How do I know how much of a query/job used Photon?

I'm trying to use the native execution engine, Photon. How can I tell if a query is using Photon or is falling back to the non-native Spark engine?

Typo error in my second point of the previous post. Click the execution plan of your task[this is available under SQL/Dataframe tab in Spark UI]. It explains what operations run in the photon engine and what didn't execute by photon.

If you are using Photon on Databricks SQLClick the Query History icon on the sidebar.Click the line containing the query you’d like to analyze.On the Query Details pop-up, click Execution Details.Look at the Task Time in Photon metric at the bottom.

Resolved! In Databricks SQL how can I tell if my query is using Photon?

I have turned Photon on in my endpoint, but I don't know if it's actually being used in my queries. Is there some way I can see this other than manually testing queries with Photon turned on and off?

@Trevor Bishop​ If you go to the History tab in DBSQL, click on the specific query and look at the execution details. At the bottom, you will see "Task time in Photon".
