  • | Celebrating Women Who Code in Postgres Pro

    In early March, before International Women’s Day, we asked our female tech professionals a few questions and were surprised by some of them providing us answers :) Let’s celebrate women who code working here at Postgres Pro and have a look at what they are up to!

  • | High availability and disaster recovery (HA/DR) for Postgres databases

    This is a summary of Postgres Professional’s more than 6 years field experience of providing HA/DR solutions to our customers and it covers both PostgreSQL and Postgres Pro databases.

    While most of our customers are making progress on their journeys to the cloud, many of the HA/DR solutions they use from the on-premises world can be used in the cloud as well.

  • | А deep dive into PostgreSQL query optimizations

    During PostgreSQL maintenance, resource-consuming queries occur inevitably. Therefore, it's vital for every Database Engineer, DBA, or Software Developer to detect and fix them as soon as possible. In this article, we'll list various extensions and monitoring tools used to collect information about queries and display them in a human-readable way.

    Then we will cover typical query writing mistakes and explain how to correct them. We will also consider cases where extended statistics are used for more accurate row count estimates. Finally, you will see an example of how PostgreSQL planner excludes redundant filter clauses during its work.

  • JIT compilation of queries

    Current approach for execution is essentially a kind plan tree interpretation. JIT-compilation of queries means compilation of plan tree into binary. Such compilation could get rid of multiple levels of indirection therefore accelerating queries.

  • Query plans management

    Business-critical applications require continuous monitoring and adjustment of query plans. The problem hardens due the fact that actual resources consumption by query execution could differ significantly with slight changes of the query plan cost. Thus, there is a permanent risk of bad plan selection and overall system performance degradation after collecting new statistics. DBAs want to protect themselves from this risk by freezing plans of particular most critical queries.

  • Page-level data compression

    PGLZ compression of individual values is used now in PostgreSQL. That’s good, but sometimes it’s possible to achieve significant compression only when compressing multiple values together. This is why we’re considering page-level data compression.
