08.19.2014 - Introducing POWA ! A new PostgreSQL Workload Analyzer



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

DALIBO is proud to present the first release of POWA, a brand new performance tool for PostgreSQL.

Realtime traffic analysis and dynamic graphs

POWA is a workload analyzer that gives a clear view of the current activity of your PostgreSQL servers with a query runtime graph and a block hit/read graph along with a chart of time consuming request over the specified time period.

If you zoom anywhere in one of the graphs, the chart will adjust and show you which queries were running at that time. If you click on a specific query, you will get additional graphs such as read/write time, number of rows affected, local and shared hit, etc.

A bunch of PL functions are also available to access and manage the stats.

Extending pg_stat_statements

Basically PoWA is a PostgreSQL extension designed to historize information given by the pg_stat_statements extension. It provides SQL SRF to gather useful information on a specified time interval.

This first release is ready for production but of course we will continue to improve it. Please install it (or test our demo site) and let's us know what you think of it. Right now what we need most is feedback and new ideas, especially to improve the user experience and the graphic interface...

PoWA is available under the PostgreSQL license. The main code is a PostgreSQL extension written in C and SQL. The user interface is based on Perl and Mojolicious. Obviously the stats are stored in a PostgreSQL database :-)

For the complete list of changes, please checkout the release note on https://github.com/dalibo/powa/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md

Credits

DALIBO would like to thank all the developers who contributed to this release, especially : Marc Cousin for the original idea and Julien Rouhaud for the hard work on the GUI.

POWA is an open project available under the PostgreSQL License. Any contribution to build a better tool is welcome. You just have to send your ideas, features requests or patches using the GitHub tools or directly to powa@dalibo.com

About POWA :

PoWA is PostgreSQL Workload Analyzer that gathers performance stats and provides real-time charts and graph to help monitor and tune your PostgreSQL servers. It is similar to Oracle AWR or SQL Server MDW.

08.19.2014 - Steve Ballmer steps down as board member at Microsoft



View Microsoft-Press related news.

Dear Satya,

As I approach the six month mark of my retirement and your appointment as CEO, I have been reflecting on my life, my ongoing ownership of Microsoft stock, and my involvement with the company. I have reached some conclusions and wanted to share them with you. I know August is the key month during which the company starts to prepare the proxy statement for the next shareholders’ meeting, and so these thoughts are probably timely for that too.

First, Microsoft has been my life’s work and I am proud of that and excited by what I see in front of the company and this leadership team. There are challenges ahead but the opportunities are even larger. No company in the world has the mix of software skills, cloud skills, and hardware skills we have assembled. We draw talent as well as any company in the world. We have the profitability to invest in long-term opportunities and still deliver superior shorter term performance. You’re off to a bold and exciting start.

Microsoft will need to be bold and make big bets to succeed in this new environment. Writing great software is a tremendous accomplishment and selling software has been a fabulous business. In the mobile-first, cloud-first world, software development is a key skill, but success requires moving to monetization through enterprise subscriptions, hardware gross margins, and advertising revenues. Making that change while also managing the existing software business well requires a boldness and fearlessness that I believe the management team has. Our board must also support and encourage that fearlessness for shareholders to get the best performance from Microsoft. You must drive that.

I had not spent any time really contemplating my post-Microsoft life until my last day with the company. In the six months since leaving, I have become very busy. I see a combination of the Clippers, civic contribution, teaching and study taking a lot of time. I have confidence in our approach of mobile-first, cloud-first, and in our primary innovation emphasis on platforms and productivity and the building of capability in devices and services as core business drivers. I hold more Microsoft shares than anyone other than index funds and love the mix of profits, investments and dividends returned in our stock. I expect to continue holding that position for the foreseeable future.

Given my confidence and the multitude of new commitments I am taking on now, I think it would be impractical for me to continue to serve on the board, and it is best for me to move off. The fall will be hectic between teaching a new class and the start of the NBA season so my departure from the board is effective immediately.

I bleed Microsoft — have for 34 years and I always will. I continue to love discussing the company’s future. I love trying new products and sending feedback. I love reading about what is going on at the company. Count on me to keep ideas and inputs flowing. The company will move to higher heights. I will be proud, and I will benefit through my share ownership. I promise to support and encourage boldness by management in my role as a shareholder in any way I can.

All the best,

Steve

Satya Nadella response to Steve Ballmer

Steve,

First, thank you for all of your support during my transition this year and for the past 34 years. It’s been a great privilege to have worked with you and learned from you. Under your leadership, we created an incredible foundation that we continue to build on — and Microsoft will thrive in the mobile-first, cloud-first world.

While your insights and leadership will be greatly missed as part of the board, I understand and support your decision.

As you embark on your new journey, I am sure that you will bring the same boldness, passion and impact to your new endeavors that you brought to Microsoft, and we wish you incredible success. I also look forward to partnering with you as a shareholder.

On behalf of all of Microsoft and the Board of Directors, thank you.

Satya
