My own first book on PostgreSQL is gaining more and more attention, and this is agood news.PostgreSQL 11 Server Side Programming it’s gaining attention
I’m happy to say that my very first book on PostgreSQL, PostgreSQL 11 Server Side Programming Quick Start Guide, is gaining more and more attention and the statistics about it is increasing.
By design, the out of the box configuration for PostgreSQL is defined to be a "Jack of All Trades, Master of None". The default configuration for PostgreSQL is fairly painstakingly chosen to ensure that it will run on every environment it is installed, meeting the lowest common denominator resources across most platforms.
Write-Ahead Logs is a critical part of PostgreSQL, that ensures data durability. While there are multiple configuration parameters , there was no easy to monitor WAL activity, or what is generating it.
Parallel query is a big help for large amount of data retrieval. On my project using PostgreSQL 12.2, I found that the feature works in plain SQL but not inside PLPGSQL or even SQL function. For years, I rely on user defined function for some considerations. First, to hide sql structure details from front end logic so that (as long as function declaration does not change) the change in internal query statements does not require front-end code rewriting.
#create named pipe
[pavel@nemesis ~]$ psql
Type "help" for help.
postgres=# \o ~/pokus
postgres=# select * from obce limit 10;
postgres=# --redirect content to pipe
Depending on your workload, the planning time can represent a significant part of the overal query procesing time. This is especially import in OLTP workload, but OLAP queries with numerous tables being joined and an aggressive configuration on the JOIN order search can also lead to hight planning time.
CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION public.buffer_dif(text, bigint)

In this survey, I just wanted to understand how people are using PostgreSQL and wanted to give the information to the community
Given the recent Covid-19 outbreak, PGDG (PostgreSQL Global Devrim Group) recently announced a few updates to the project: Continue reading "Updates from the PostgreSQL project"
Recently I was talking in a more general way about some common auditing / change tracking approaches for PostgreSQL…but it also made me curious, how it roughly looks from the performance side?
The World has been taken by storm by the COVID-19. Our thoughts are with the people who, for any reason, are suffering from this. We are with you.
Example: I can write own isnull function:
CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION isnull(anyelement, anyelement)
RETURNS anyelement AS $$
SELECT coalesce($1, $2)
$$ LANGUAGE sql;
postgres=# SELECT public.isnull(NULL, 1);
│ isnull │
│ 1 │
postgres=# SELECT public.isnull(NULL, CURRENT_DATE);
│ isnull │
PostgreSQL has a rich set of indexing functionality, and there are many articles explaining the syntax, usage, and value of the index. In this article, I will write basic and useful queries to see the state of database indexes. People develop databases and after some time, when there is a demand to do changes in the architecture of software, they forget to do the previous indexes’ cleanup. This approach creates a mess and sometimes slows down the database because of too many indexes.
