Daniel Pocock: Anzacathon: the benefits of Open Data

Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet - 23. April 2020 - 23:10

25 April is Anzac Day in Australia, New Zealand and many communities around the world where Anzacs have served. Given the shift to online collaboration in 2020, Anzacathon has been set up to help people engage online.

One of the key themes of Anzacathon is data: finding new ways to use the data and also demonstrating the benefits of community engagement with open data.

ahsan hadi: Stored Procedures also have rights

Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet - 23. April 2020 - 9:32

This is a follow-up of my recent blog tittled “Stored Procedures in PG 11 – Better late then never” posted on highgo.ca and also on planet postgres. It is available at https://www.highgo.ca/2020/04/10/stored-procedures-in-pg-11-better-late-then-never/. In this short blog titled “Stored Procedures also have rights”, I will be discussing the definer and invoker rights for stored procedures, the same concept also applies to stored functions.

Kirk Roybal: Oracle to PostgreSQL: START WITH/CONNECT BY

Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet - 22. April 2020 - 22:54
And now we arrive at the second article in our migration from Oracle to PostgreSQL series. This time we’ll be taking a look at the START WITH/CONNECT BY construct. In Oracle, START WITH/CONNECT BY is used to create a singly linked list structure starting at a given sentinel row. The linked list may take the form of a tree, and has no balancing requirement. We will show you how to do the same thing using recursive common table expressions in PostgreSQL.

Today's blog post is for all those people who want to create and manage PostgreSQL or x clusters AFTER the PostgreSQL Operator has been installed on their Kubernetes/OpenShift cluster.

Bruce Momjian: Performance Goalposts

Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet - 22. April 2020 - 15:45

In talking to EnterpriseDB customers, I am often asked about the performance limits of Postgres: How many connections can it handle? How many TPS?

Well, those are good questions, but it is hard to give accurate answers since so much depends on the hardware and workload. Eventually, testing of actual workloads on intended hardware has to be done, but not giving ball-park answers is unhelpful. What answer can I give? Well, I came up with this chart:

Martijn Wallet: Native PostgreSQL or Supported PostgreSQL

Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet - 21. April 2020 - 15:50
One of the most popular open source databases is PostgreSQL, in 2018 even declared DBMS of the Year. In this blog Martijn Wallet shares the most important advantages of using Supported PostgreSQL such as EDB Postgres Platform as compared to native PostgreSQL.

Laurenz Albe: PostgreSQL v13 new feature: tuning autovacuum on insert-only tables

Most people know that autovacuum is necessary to get rid of dead tuples. These dead tuples are a side effect of PostgreSQL’s MVCC implementation. So many people will be confused when they read that from PostgreSQL v13 on, commit b07642dbc adds support for autovacuuming insert-only tables (also known as “append-only tables”).

Jonathan Katz: Easy PostgreSQL 12 and pgAdmin 4 Setup with Docker

Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet - 21. April 2020 - 0:12

When I first started working with  PostgreSQL and containers, one of the first items presented to me was a recipe to get PostgreSQL 10 setup with pgAdmin 4 using Docker, which was over two years ago.

Denish Patel: Is there a limit on number of partitions handled by Postgres?

Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet - 20. April 2020 - 20:07

PostgreSQL is continuously improving partitions support but there is limitations on number of partitions handled by each release. Based on our experience , if you are using a lot more partitions than it’s limit for Postgres release, it will throw out of memory errors or crash!

Bruce Momjian: Fast Enough?

Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet - 20. April 2020 - 16:00

Everyone one wants their software to perform as fast as possible. Some people think that unless the program ends before it begins, it's too slow.

However, realistically, making something as fast as possible is not a universal good, meaning that increasing performance beyond a certain point can cause problems that far exceed the value of the improved performance. Let's give some examples:

Andreas 'ads' Scherbaum: Mark Wong

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Mark Wong: I am currently living in and am originally from Portland, Oregon. I am working for 2ndQuadrant who provides a range of Postgres products and services. I’ve taken up a variety of hobbies over the years. A couple of my favorites are medium and large format photography, and crocheting stuffed animals. You may be familiar with one particularly cute little elephant endearingly named Chelnik by Gabrielle Roth.

Lætitia AVROT: Where do my Postgres settings come from ?

Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet - 19. April 2020 - 15:22
Postgres has a lot of settings and it’s both a good thing (you can really change it the way you want) and a bad thing (newcomers are confused by all those choices). On top of that, there are several ways to change a setting and if you don’t change the right one, your change might have no effect at all!  Settings values overwrite rules The following picture will show you the different ways to set a parameter and how they can be overwritten.

movead li: The Origin in PostgreSQL logical decoding

Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet - 18. April 2020 - 2:13

While studying the WAL structure, I came across a keyword named “origin” in the WAL log that I found intriguing. There is not much details on PG official documentation on this keyword in the WAL record and its functions. Hence I set upon the research in the code to find more about this secret data, the purpose of this blog is to share my research about Origin and its purpose in the WAL log.

David Z: Replicate multiple PostgreSQL servers to a single MongoDB server using logical decoding output plugin

Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet - 18. April 2020 - 0:16
1. Overview

“Postgres, is a free and open-source relational database management system (RDBMS) emphasizing extensibility and SQL compliance.” This is the highlight of PostgreSQL in a sentence from Wikipedia. Yes, the extensibility of PostgreSQL is extremely useful when you have some special requirements. This blog will discuss how to use logical decoding output plugin to replicate multiple PostgreSQL servers to a single MongoDB server and the environment setup using docker compose for a quick Proof of Concept.

Bruce Momjian: No Travel

Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet - 17. April 2020 - 14:00

With the Coronavirus outbreak, almost all Postgres events through June have been either cancelled, rescheduled, or moved online. This has given me time to consider my past travel. I have been blessed to visit so many places, not as a tourist, but rather a guest. I see countries more as a native than as a tourist, and I have many event organizers and hosts to thank for this.

Hubert 'depesz' Lubaczewski: Waiting for PostgreSQL 13 – Add the option to report WAL usage in EXPLAIN and auto_explain.

Neues vom PostgreSQL Planet - 17. April 2020 - 12:52
On 6th of April 2020, Amit Kapila committed patch: Add the option to report WAL usage in EXPLAIN and auto_explain.   This commit adds a new option WAL similar to existing option BUFFERS in the EXPLAIN command. This option allows to include information on WAL record generation added by commit df3b181499 in EXPLAIN output.
