Ryan Booz: PostgreSQL Community: Passionate, Knowledgeable, and Thoughtful

2. Dezember 2022 - 21:57
For PGSQL Phriday #003 (the last one of 2022), Pat Wright asked us to consider the PostgreSQL community, what it means to us, and how we would get started as a new user. I love this topic for a couple of reasons, not the least of which is that my interest in, and enjoyment of, … Continue reading "PostgreSQL Community: Passionate, Knowledgeable, and Thoughtful"

Pavel Stehule: prepared dll of orafce 4.0.1 and plpgsql_check 2.2.5 for PostgreSQL 14 and PostgreSQL 15

2. Dezember 2022 - 20:03

I compiled and uploaded zip files with latest orafce and plpgsql_check for PostgreSQL 14 and PostgreSQL 15.


Grant Fritchey: PGSQL PHRIDAY #3: What is the PostgreSQL Community To You?

2. Dezember 2022 - 16:05

Very excited to take part in my third #PGSQLPhriday blogging event, even more so because it’s a topic that’s quite near and dear to my heart, community. To say that I’m new to the PostgreSQL community isn’t simply an understatement. Other than some online stuff, I haven’t been anywhere near the PostgreSQL community. That’s not […]

Elizabeth Garrett Christensen: PostGIS Day 2022

2. Dezember 2022 - 16:00

Crunchy Data hosted the 4th annual PostGIS Day on November 17, 2022. PostGIS Day always comes a day after GIS Day which occurs annually on the 3rd Wednesday of November.

We had speakers from 10 different countries and attendees from more than 70 countries.

PostGIS is the most popular spatial relational database worldwide with:

Jobin Augustine: New WAL Archive Module/Library in PostgreSQL 15

2. Dezember 2022 - 13:29

PostgreSQL traditionally uses shell commands to achieve continuous WAL archiving, which is essential for backups and stable standby replication.  In the past, we blogged about the inefficiency in that design and how some of the backup tools like PgBackRest solve that problem. It is a well-known problem in the PostgreSQL community, and many discussions happened in the past about the same.

Frits Hoogland: YugabyteDB Yedis

2. Dezember 2022 - 12:02

YugabyteDB YEDIS is a key-value database that is compatible with the redis commands library.

Important: YEDIS is deprecated!

There are other limitations for YEDIS see the description in the YugabyteDB documentation.

The most important part of this blogpost is how to remove the YEDIS, see: 'YEDIS can be removed'.

Ryan Lambert: What is the PostgreSQL community to you? - PGSQL Phriday #003

2. Dezember 2022 - 6:01

This blog post is for PGSQL Phriday #003. Read Ryan Booz' introduction from September for more details on PGSQL Phriday. Pat Wright (SQL Asylum) is this month's host and chose the topic: What is the PostgreSQL community to you?


The Postgres community is helpful.

Paul Ramsey: Postgres Strings to Arrays and Back Again

1. Dezember 2022 - 16:00

One of my favourite (in an ironic sense) data formats is the "CSV in the CSV", a CSV file in which one or more of the column is itself structured as CSV.

Putting CSV-formatted columns in your CSV file is a low tech approach to shipping a multi-table relational data structure in a single file. The file can be read by anything that can read CSV (which is everything?) and ships around the related data in a very readable form.

Frits Hoogland: LSM-tree storage in YugabyteDB and packed rows

1. Dezember 2022 - 13:37

YugabyteDB uses the PostgreSQL source code for PostgreSQL compatibility, which we call YSQL. However, once we store tuples, we transform the PostgreSQL tuples into a storage format that is called 'protobuf', which gets send to our distributed storage layer called 'DocDB' via RPC calls. After DocDB has received the tuples, it is stored in the database we use for the storage, which is rocks db. Rocksdb is a key-value store which stores the PostgreSQL tuples (as well as YCQL tuples from our Cassandra compatible storage engine) as key-value pairs and sub-key-value pairs.

Hubert 'depesz' Lubaczewski: Picking random element, with weights

30. November 2022 - 15:37
Whenever I'm doing some testing I need sample data. Easiest way to do it is to generate data using some random/generate_series queries. But what if I need specific frequencies? For example, I need to generate 10,000,000 rows, where there will be 10% of ‘a', 20% of ‘b', and the rest will be split equally between … Continue reading "Picking random element, with weights"

Pavlo Golub: GRANT VACUUM, ANALYZE in PostgreSQL 16

30. November 2022 - 11:00

PostgreSQL uses table VACUUM and ANALYZE commands to optimize the database. The VACUUM command reclaims storage space and makes it available for re-use. It also updates the visibility map, which helps the query planner to quickly identify which parts of the table have live rows.

Luca Ferrari: pgagroal: getting run-time configuration

30. November 2022 - 1:00

A new command to interactively get the pgagroal runtime configuration.

Egor Rogov: PostgreSQL 14 Internals, Part IV

30. November 2022 - 1:00

I’m excited to announce that the translation of Part IV of the “PostgreSQL 14 Internals” book is published. This part delves into the inner workings of the planner and the executor, and it took me a couple of hundred pages to get through all the magic that covers this advanced technology.

You can download the book freely in PDF. The last part is yet to come, stay tuned!

Hans-Juergen Schoenig: Partition PostgreSQL: which partition did I INSERT my data into?

29. November 2022 - 11:00

Partitioning is one of the most desired features of PostgreSQL, widely adopted by developers. This is not only true for in PostgreSQL 15, but also for older versions which did not provide as many features as the latest version of the database. That’s why you should know not only how to properly partition tables, but how to find out which partition a piece of data belongs to.

So, there’s a small question which often arises: How DO I figure out which partition I just inserted my data into? Some small “old consultant’s trickery” can help to find out.

Peter Eisentraut: git range-diff

29. November 2022 - 6:00

Let’s say you are following a patch in the PostgreSQL commit fest. The author has posted “v5” of a patch, some feedback has been sent, the author comes back with “v6” and a note saying that they have incorporated all that feedback. How do you check what actually changed?

A straightforward way is to make two separate branches in your local Git repository, commit the two patches, and compare the results, perhaps like this:

Pavel Stehule: pspg 5.6.0

28. November 2022 - 17:07

I released pspg 5.6.0. There is only one (not too visible change). It allows to use true color themes in "konsole" terminal (when TERM) is xterm-direct.

Andreas 'ads' Scherbaum: Oleksandr Shulgin

28. November 2022 - 15:00
PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Oleksandr Shulgin: My name is Oleksandr. It is the same as “Alexander”, but in the Ukrainian spelling, so you’re right if you guessed that I originally come from Ukraine.

David Z: Global Index, benchmark with pgbench

25. November 2022 - 22:06
1. Overview

Followed my previous blog, Global Index, a different approach, we posted our initial Global Unique Index POC to Postgres community for open discussion about this approach. Now, this blog is trying to explain how the benchmark was performed using pgbench on this initial Global Unique Index POC.

Frits Hoogland: A look into JSONB in YugabyteDB

25. November 2022 - 16:09

To see how JSON is stored in YugabyteDB, we have to take a look at both PostgreSQL and YugabyteDB.

Let's create two test tables for investigation:
