Avinash Vallarapu: Setting up Streaming Replication in PostgreSQL 13 and Streaming Replication Internals

31. März 2021 - 14:45

While migrating to PostgreSQL, some of the users may be curious about the type of replication offered by PostgreSQL. Some might want to know if they have to pay any additional enterprise license in order to achieve this requirement. This is because, a few commercial databases require a customer to take an enteprise license to setup replication. But, PostgreSQL, like advanced Open Source databases, automatically offers several types of replication methods built-in.

Bo Peng: Logging of Pgpool-II on Kubernetes

30. März 2021 - 17:00

Logging is an important topic and particularly useful for troubleshooting, debugging and monitoring. Many applications have their own build-in logging mechanism. Pgpool-II logging mechanism is similar to PostgreSQL logging mechanism. Pgpool-II log management system supports two ways for logging messages (stderr and syslog) and the logging collector process collects the logs sent to stderr and redirects them into log files. However, how can we manage the logging system on Kubernetes? In this blog, I will describe how to manage Pgpool-II container logs on Kubernetes.

Hans-Juergen Schoenig: How the PostgreSQL query optimizer works

24. März 2021 - 9:30

Just like any advanced relational database, PostgreSQL uses a cost-based query optimizer that tries to turn your SQL queries into something efficient that executes in as little time as possible. For many people, the workings of the optimizer itself remain a mystery, so we have decided to give users some insight into what is really going on behind the scenes.

Lætitia AVROT: No space left on device

21. März 2021 - 14:53
This was the most common cause of calls at might: your cluster ran out of space. Nowadays, we can add storage on the fly, storage is cheap and (normally) we do monitor disk space so that this should not happen. Anyhow, how can we deal with such a problem? To simulate such a problem, I created a virtual host and I created a bug empty file to almost fill the file system.
