PostgreSQL Database Growth

Hi ,

Here you can find the code for finding the DB Growth Percentage in PostgreSQL.

Required TABLE:-
-------------------
CREATE TABLE PGBAR_PGG.DBSIZES(TIME_STMP TIMESTAMP DEFAULT NOW(),DATNAME VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL,DATSIZE BIGINT NOT NULL,DBGROWTH VARCHAR(100),DBGROWTHPERCENT REAL);

Required Function For Trigger:-
---------------------------------
CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION PGBAR_PGG.FEED_DB_GROWTH()
RETURNS TRIGGER
LANGUAGE PLPGSQL
AS $FUNCTION$
DECLARE
CHECK_DB_PRESENCE INT;
PREV_DB_SIZE BIGINT;
BEGIN
SELECT COUNT(*) INTO CHECK_DB_PRESENCE FROM PGBAR_PGG.DBSIZES WHERE LOWER(DATNAME)=NEW.DATNAME;
IF(CHECK_DB_PRESENCE=0) THEN
RETURN NEW;
ELSE
SELECT DATSIZE INTO PREV_DB_SIZE FROM PGBAR_PGG.DBSIZES WHERE (CTID,DATNAME) IN (SELECT MAX(CTID),DATNAME FROM PGBAR_PGG.DBSIZES GROUP BY DATNAME HAVING DATNAME=NEW.DATNAME);
IF(PREV_DB_SIZE!=NEW.DATSIZE) THEN
SELECT PG_SIZE_PRETTY(NEW.DATSIZE::BIGINT-PREV_DB_SIZE) INTO NEW.DBGROWTH;
SELECT ((NEW.DATSIZE::REAL-PREV_DB_SIZE::REAL)/PREV_DB_SIZE::REAL*100) INTO NEW.DBGROWTHPERCENT;
RETURN NEW;
END IF;
END IF;
RETURN NULL;
END;
$FUNCTION$;

Required Trigger:-
-------------------
CREATE TRIGGER DB_SIZE_FEED_TRIG BEFORE INSERT ON pgbar_pgg.DBSIZES FOR EACH ROW EXECUTE PROCEDURE pgbar_pgg.FEED_DB_GROWTH();

Required Stmt in Cronjob:-
---------------------------
insert into dbsizes(datname,datsize) select datname,pg_database_size(datname) from pg_databases;

Required View for getting required Result:-
-------------------------------------------
create view dbsizes_report
as
select time_stmp::date as "Date",pg_size_pretty(datsize),dbgrowth,dbgrowthpercent
from
dbsizes
where current_date=time_stmp::date;

The table dbsizes provides you the database growth size and percentage growth as well depends on the time interval.

Pgpool Configuration & Failback

I would like to share the pgpool configuration, and it's failback mechanism in this post.

Hope it will be helpful to you in creating pgpool and it's failback setup.

Pgpool Installation & Configuration

1. Download the pgpool from below link(Latest version is 3.2.1).
    http://www.pgpool.net/mediawiki/index.php/Downloads


2. Untart the pgpool-II-3.2.1.tar.gz and goto pgpool-II-3.2.1 directory.

3. Install the pgpool by executing the below commands:

./configure ­­prefix=/opt/PostgreSQL92/ ­­--with­-pgsql­-includedir=/opt/PostgreSQL92/include/ --with­-pgsql­-libdir=/opt/PostgreSQL92/lib/ make make install 4. You can see the pgpool files in /opt/PostgreSQL92/bin location.

pgBucket - A new concurrent job scheduler

Hi All,

I'm so excited to announce about my first contribution tool for postgresql. I have been working with PostgreSQL from 2011 and I'm really impressed with such a nice database.

I started few projects in last 2 years like pgHawk[A beautiful report generator for Openwatch] , pgOwlt [CUI monitoring. It is still under development, incase you are interested to see what it is, attaching the image here for you ],


pgBucket [Which I'm gonna talk about] and learned a lot and lot about PostgreSQL/Linux internals.

Using pgBucket we can schedule jobs easily and we can also maintain them using it's CLI options. We can update/insert/delete jobs at online. And here is its architecture which gives you a basic idea about how it works.


Yeah, I know there are other good job schedulers available for PostgreSQL. I haven't tested them and not comparing them with this, as I implemented it in my way.
Features are: OS/DB jobsCron style sytaxOnline job modificationsRequired cli options

N-Node Mutlimaster Replication With Bucardo...!

Our team recently got  a problem, which is to solve the N-Node multi master replication in PostgreSQL.

We all know that, there are some other db engines like Postgres-XC which works in this way. But, we don't have any tool available in PostgreSQL, except Bucardo.

Bucardo is the nice solution for 2-Nodes. Is there a way we can exceed this limitation from 2 to N..?

As an initial step on this, I have done with 3 Nodes, which I believe, we can extend this upto N. { I might be wrong here.}

Please follow the below steps to set up the 1 - 1 multi master replication.

1. Follow the below steps to get all the pre-requisites for the Bucardo.

yum install perl-DBIx-Safe or apt-get install libdbix-safe-perl Install the below components from CPAN. DBI DBD::Pg Test::Simple boolean (Bucardo 5.0 and higher) Download the latest tarball from here. tar xvfz Bucardo-4.4.8.tar.gz cd Bucardo-4.4.8 perl Makefile.PL make sudo make install 2. We need to create plperl extension in db. For this, download…
