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 v1.0 is ready

pgBucket v1.0 pgBucket v1.0 (concurrent job scheduler for PostgreSQL) is released. This version is more stable and fixed the issues which was observed in the previous beta releases.
Highlights of this tool are Schedule OS/DB level jobsCron style syntax {Schedule up to seconds}On fly job modificationsInstant daemon status by retrieving live job queue, job hashEnough cli options to deal with all the configured/scheduled job Here is the URL for the pgBucket build/usage instructions. https://bitbucket.org/dineshopenscg/pgbucket
I hope this tool will be helpful for the PostgreSQL users to get things done in the scheduled time. Note: This tool requires c++11{gcc version >= 4.9.3} to compile.

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
