Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: Unable to get the locale encoding

Hi ,

If you are getting the above ERROR message while configuring PL/PYTHON module, then please use the below steps to configure in PostgreSQL. We need to use PYTHON 3.2 Version due to some bugs in earlier version.

Step 1
=====
Download Link: http://www.activestate.com/activepython/downloads/thank-you?dl=http://downloads.activestate.com/ActivePython/releases/3.2.2.3/ActivePython-3.2.2.3-linux-x86.tar.gz"

Step 2
=====

-bash-4.1$ export PYTHONPATH=/opt/ActivePython-3.2/bin:$PATH
-bash-4.1$ export PYTHONHOME=/opt/ActivePython-3.2/
-bash-4.1$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/ActivePython-3.2/lib/

Step 3
=====

-bash-4.1$ ./pg_ctl -D ../data/ stop -mf
waiting for server to shut down.... done
server stopped

-bash-4.1$ ./pg_ctl -D ../data/ start
server starting

Step 4
=====

-bash-4.1$ ./psql -p 5434 postgres

Password:
psql.bin (9.1.4)
Type "help" for help.
postgres=# CREATE LANGUAGE plpython3u;
CREATE LANGUAGE
postgres=#

Step 5
=====

postgres=#     CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION pymax (a integer, b integer) RETURNS integer AS
    $$
        if a > b:
          return a
        return b
    $$ LANGUAGE plpython3u;
CREATE FUNCTION

postgres=# SELECT pymax(3,4);
 pymax
-------
     4
(1 row)

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
