Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet
Snapshot isolation mode is coming For the new release I have just added new clustering mode called "Snapshot isolation mode", which would be not only interesting for Pgpool-II users but PostgreSQL users and I think I decided to write about it in this blog.
Existing clustering mode Until Pgpool-II 4.1, we have following clustering mode:
Recently, I have had an opportunity to perform some in-depth feasibility study in-memory table using PostgreSQL’s pluggable storage API. The pluggable storage API was introduced Since PostgreSQL v12 and it allowed custom table storage Access Methods (AM for short) to be developed. Some famous examples include zheap from EDB, which aims to store a much more simplified tuple structure to achieve vacuum free storage and zedstore from Greenplum to utilize columnar storage.
There are many security guides that require encryption at rest. However, it is unclear exactly what "at rest" means. Encrypted at rest can potentially mean encrypted when the:
Recently I was asked if there’s a rule of thumb / best practice for setting the fillfactor in Postgres – and the only answer I could give was to decrease it “a bit” if you’re doing lots and lots of updates on some table. Good advice? Well it could be better of course – this kind of coarse quantization leaves a lot of room for interpretation and possible adverse effects. So to have a nicer answer ready for the next time I thought it would be nice to get some real approximate numbers. Time to conjure up some kind of a test!
Server Programming Interface(SPI) is a module in the PostgreSQL kernel which allows kernel developers to execute SQL statements in C functions and have the ability to manage transactions. This module provides great convenience for PostgreSQL plug-in development through its characteristics so that developers can conveniently call various database languages in the kernel. SPI modules are used in the realization of procedural languages and when learning to use SPI, we can refer to the methods of calling SPI interfaces by these modules.

No one likes user passwords appearing in log files (except the bad guys/gals).
LIKE and ILIKE are two fundamental SQL features. People use those things all over the place in their application and therefore it makes sense to approach the topic from a performance point of view. What can PostgreSQL do to speed up those operations and what can be done in general to first understand the problem and secondly to achieve better PostgreSQL database performance.
The PostGIS Team is pleased to release the second alpha of upcoming PostGIS 3.1.0 release.
Best served with
PostgreSQL 13beta2, GEOS 3.7 or higher is recommended.
ST_MaximumInscribedCircle requires compilation with GEOS 3.9.0 in development to be enabled.
pgRouting 3.1.0 which will also be released soon.
