1. Oktober 2020 - 20:35

WAL is short for Write-Ahead-Log. Any change to the data is first recorded in a WAL file. The WAL files are mainly used by RDBMS as a way to achieve durability and consistency while writing data to storage systems.

Devin Clark: Storing Timezones in Postgres

1. Oktober 2020 - 2:00

Storing a user’s timezone in Postgres can be an interesting task in apps. Often, this is accomplished by generating a hardcoded list of every timezone in the backend (or worse the frontend JavaScript) and storing an item from that list in the database for each user. This hardcoded magic list is both difficult to build accurately and hard to maintain. Timezones change more frequently than you would imagine ...but less frequently than time itself.

Bruce Momjian: Three Postgres Adoption Groups in Enterprises

30. September 2020 - 17:15

Having watched Postgres grow in popularity over the years, I have seen my share of organizations with competing teams, some promoting Postgres, other dismissing it. I came up with this diagram (slide 23) which shows the three groups typically involved in deciding Postgres adoption. The groups are Managers, Administrators, and Developers. In this diagram, each group has things that motivate them listed below the group name.

Sadequl Hussain: PostgreSQL VACUUM and ANALYZE Best Practice Tips

30. September 2020 - 12:02
VACUUM and ANALYZE are the two most important PostgreSQL database maintenance operations.  A vacuum is used for recovering space occupied by “dead tuples” in a table. A dead tuple is created when a record is either deleted or updated (a delete followed by an insert). PostgreSQL doesn’t physically remove the old row from the table […]

Tatsuo Ishii: Fixing language in Pgpool-II 4.2

30. September 2020 - 8:45
 The Challenge

 Upcoming Pgpool-II uses more appropriate language for some technical terms. This has been already done in PostgreSQL. Pgpool-II developers think it's a good thing and decided to follow the way. Actual work has been done by Umar Hayat. Challenge is we have to fix not only documentations but configuration parameters and programs. As a result, his patch was quite large: 159 files have been changed, over 2,000 lines were modified.

Peter Eisentraut: PostgreSQL, a community project

29. September 2020 - 19:56
PostgreSQL 13 was released last week. As a PostgreSQL developer, of course I monitor the news and social media on days like this to see what the public thinks about our release and maybe which features get discussed most.

Kaarel Moppel: A quick look at PostgreSQL 13 RC1 query performance

29. September 2020 - 9:30

If you read this blog post the new PostgreSQL version will be probably already officially released to the public for wider usage…but seems some eager DBA already installed the last week’s Release Candidate 1 and took it for a spin The “spin” though takes 3 days to run for my scripts, so that’s the reason I didn’t want to wait for the official release.

As this is an RC, and some things could change, etc, just a very brief posting this time with some synthetic pgbench test numbers that I got from my testing laid out for you and a mini conclusion in the end.

James Coleman: PostgreSQL at Scale: Saving Space (Basically) for Free

28. September 2020 - 22:57

Braintree Payments operates dozens of PostgreSQL clusters with over 100 terabytes of data. At this scale, even a few percentage points change in disk space growth rate can meaningfully impact the writable lifespan of a database cluster. Unfortunately, many ideas to save disk space require application changes and therefore need to be slotted into product timelines.

Bruce Momjian: Cloud Vendor Monetization of Open Source

28. September 2020 - 16:45

Since open source became a powerful force in the software world, it has gone through several phases. The first phase was built around universities and volunteers, with little business involvement. As open source grew, companies like Red Hat were created to simplify deployment of open source software in enterprises. With the popularity of open source, companies that distributed their software as open source, but were company-controlled, started to proliferate, like MySQL.
