Amit Kapila: Evolution of Logical Replication

25. September 2023 - 14:47

This blog post is about how the Logical Replication has evolved over the years in PostgreSQL, what's in the latest release-16, and what's being worked upon for future releases.

Generating random numbers is a surprisingly common task in programs, whether it's to create test data or to provide a user with a random entry from a list of items.

PostgreSQL comes with just a few simple foundational functions that can be used to fulfill most needs for randomness.

Almost all your random-ness needs will be met with the random() function.

However, every solution does have limitations. Therefore, it makes sense to take a look at the latest version of Citus and learn how to properly use the most frequently-needed SQL features. Note that this is not a comprehensive overview, rather it is a guide through 6 of the most commonly-needed SQL tools:
