If yor prepare a file with a Cypher statement that includes either a profile or explain clause and then want to pipe that file to bin/cypher-shell, to produce the profile/explain output you must include –format verbose on the command line.

For example, when your file, mycypher.cql, contains

profile match (n:Movies) return count(n);

if you run

cat mycypher.cql | ./cypher-shell

the output will be

Plan: "PROFILE"
Statement: "READ_ONLY"
Version: "CYPHER 3.2"
Planner: "COST"
Runtime: "COMPILED"
Time: 42
DbHits: 0
Rows: 1
count(n)
0

however when running

cat mycypher.cql | ./cypher-shell --format verbose

the output will now be

+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Plan      | Statement   | Version      | Planner | Runtime    | Time | DbHits | Rows |
+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| "PROFILE" | "READ_ONLY" | "CYPHER 3.2" | "COST"  | "COMPILED" | 0    | 0      | 1    |
