Enhanced alpha release of new data analytics application available.

2ndQuadrant is pleased to announce further enhancements to 2UDA (pronounced 'Tudor'), our new data analytics application suite currently under development, and available to try now.

  • PostgreSQL server daemon is now an OS service (named "org.2ndQ.2UDA.postgres-9.5") on OS X
  • PostgreSQL server daemon is now an OS service (named "2uda-postgresql-9.5") on Linux (tested on Ubuntu 14.04, CentOS 7, openSUSE 13.2, & Fedora 22)
  • Windows installer is now certified from Microsoft and signed digitally
  • Latest PostgreSQL 9.5 after its Alpha 2 release has been included. Details of changes are listed
  • Latest Orange 3 has been included. This version uses the new tablesample patch in PostgreSQL rather than relying on blocksample extension.
  • Latest LibreOffice 5 has been included.
  • The installer now checks for server readiness before loading sample database. This prevents a bug where sample data got loaded while the server was still consolidating its connections.
  • Other small bugs and tweaks.

07.28.2015 - pgCluu release 2.4 is out



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

pgCluu 2.4 released

PostgreSQL Cluster Utilization

pgCluu is a Perl program used to perform a full audit of a PostgreSQL Cluster performances. It is divided in two parts, a collector used to grab statistics on the PostgreSQL server using psql and sar, a reports builder that will generate all HTML and charts output.

This release is a maintenance release that fix some issues. There's also some new interesting reports:

  • Transfers per second (read/write/both) on all devices from sar -b
  • Transfers per second for each device from sar -d .
  • Number of tasks created per second
  • Number of context switches per seconds.
  • Improve pg_stat_statement report by adding all shared block stats and read/write I/O timing per query when track_io_timing is enabled.
  • Add device with highest tps on overall system information.

and useful features:

  • Add --capture mode to pgcluu_collectd to be be able to build a snapshot of the PostgreSQL instance and exit. pgCluu will automatically adapt the report to this capture mode. It will use a temporary directory /tmp/pgcluu_capture to generate a tarball /tmp/pgcluu_capture.tar.gz containing the capture.
  • Add pgCluu logo and ico to the html output.
  • Add --charset option to be able to change the html charset, default: utf8.
  • Allow regular expression in database list available in reports, for example: with --db-only "p.*", only database beginning with p will be reported.
  • Allow pgcluu to parse and compute statistics from gzip compressed files.
  • pgcluu will not stop anymore if the sar file is not found, it will only show a warning message and continue.

This release also adds -r | --rotate-daily and -R | --rotate-hourly options to pgcluu_collectd be able to rotate statistic files on a daily or hourly basis. You can use -z or --compress option to compress rotated data files.

There also some code relative to next coming major release that will be used to allow a full incremental mode and a temporal selection into the collected statistics from a CGI program. This code enable caching (option -C or --cache) by dumping statistics stored in memory into binary files. With those files, data files can be removed (automatically with option -c or --clean) and report can be build later from them. This is not really useful now but this s the first stage to build incremental and cumulative reports.

See ChangeLog for a complete list of changes and bug fixes.

The goal of this project is to provide a complete PostgreSQL auditing tool that don't need any dependency to be run easily to audit a local or remote server.

If you just have a sar output file, pgCluu can be use to draw graphs about the system utilization only.

pgCluu is an original collection of tools built during my work at Dalibo. Those tools are published under the PostgreSQL License to be shared, any one is welcome to contribute.

07.17.2015 - New ODBC Driver for PostgreSQL



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

Devart team announced a release of a bran-new product - ODBC Driver for PostgreSQL. It provides high-performance and feature-rich connectivity solution for ODBC-based applications to access PostgreSQL databases from Windows, Linux, MacOS, both 32-bit and 64-bit. Full support for standard ODBC API functions and data types implemented in our driver makes interaction of your database applications with PostgreSQL fast, easy and extremely handy.

The list of key features include:

  • Direct Connection. Database applications based on our solution get an opportunity to establish connection to PostgreSQL in Direct Mode. Direct Mode gives your applications an unrivalld advantage - connection to PostgreSQL databases directly via TCP/IP avoiding PostgreSQL Client. That improves performance of your applications, their quality, reliability and especially the deployment process, since there is no need to supply additional client software together with your application.

  • Development Platforms Variety. ODBC driver for PostgreSQL doesn't limit your choice of the development platform and environment. The driver installations are available for various operational systems and platforms. The current version supports Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, both 32-bit and 64-bit. So you can develop both 32-bit and 64-bit cross-platform applications.

  • ODBC Conformance. Our ODBC driver provides full support for common ODBC interface - ODBC Data Types support and ODBC API Functions support. In addition, we provide support for Advanced Connection String parameters. Thus allowing any desktop and web applications to connect to PostgreSQL from various environments and platforms, that support ODBC.

  • DB Compatibility. Our driver is compatible with major and the latest PostgreSQL server versions since 7.1 up to 9.4.

07.07.2015 - Open-Source Streaming-SQL Database PipelineDB Now Available



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

PipelineDB, an open-source relational streaming-SQL database, publicly released version (0.7.7) today and made the product available as open-source via their website and GitHub. PipelineDB is based on, and is wire compatible with, PostgreSQL 9.4 and has added functionality including continuous SQL queries, probabilistic data structures, sliding windowing, and stream-table joins. For a full description of PipelineDB and its capabilities see their technical documentation.

PipelineDB’s fundamental abstraction is what is called a continuous view. These are much like regular SQL views, except that their defining SELECT queries can include streams as a source to read from. The most important property of continuous views is that they only store their output in the database. That output is then continuously updated incrementally as new data flows through streams, and raw stream data is discarded once all continuous views have read it. Let's look at a canonical example:

   CREATE CONTINUOUS VIEW v AS SELECT COUNT(*) FROM stream

Only one row would ever physically exist in PipelineDB for this continuous view, and its value would simply be incremented for each new event ingested.

For more information on PipelineDB as a company, product and for examples and benefits, please check out their first blog post on their new website.
