  • Use of the Master Password in pgAdmin 4

    Akshay Joshi4/22/2022

    pgAdmin 4 introduced the Master Password in order to secure and later unlock saved server passwords. Any password that is saved in the SQLite DB file - used for storing user preferences and other data - through the save password or save SSH tunnel password option will be encrypted and decrypted using the master password.

  • Steady Storage Stampede

    Shaun Thomas 4/21/2022

    High Availability is more than just choosing the right architecture, replication tools, and failover systems. Storage can play a surprisingly important role in server responsiveness, as can somewhat obscure operating system tuning parameters. This week in PG Phriday, we’re going to examine just how important storage behavior can be to Postgres High Availability.

  • pgAdmin 4 Deployment Modes

  • This Year’s Grammys Demonstrate Technology Innovation Driving Engagement Across the Music Industry

    EDB Team4/4/2022

    The 64th Annual Grammy awards were a showcase for disruption. As an industry that once viewed technologies such as digitization and streaming as threats to creativity and profitability, the Awards demonstrated quite the opposite across the music industry.

  • PG Phriday: Tidying Up With VACUUM

    Shaun Thomas 4/1/2022

    Hot on the heels of our discussion on preventing Postgres XID wraparound using basic monitoring, let’s talk about arresting the risk almost entirely through Autovacuum. With a few relatively minor tweaks to our configuration and focusing on the occasional problematic table, we can both increase maintenance throughput, and also reduce impact on client queries. Let’s demystify the art of VACUUM and keep our cluster self-maintaining in the bargain.

  • pgAdmin 4 Browser Tree

    Khushboo Vashi3/23/2022

    The pgAdmin 4 browser tree is a crucial component from the UI perspective as it lists all the database server objects and all other functionality relies on it. As it lists thousands of objects, the performance of the tree was a concern for the team. In 2020, we decided to move from Backbone to React, so after doing some R & D work, we came to the conclusion to implement the browser tree from scratch using the React Aspen Tree package.

  • PG Phriday: Wrapping Transactions Right Round

    Shaun Thomas 3/17/2022

    Since transactions and replication within Postgres are essential to all types of availability, that means keeping the transaction ID state healthy. This Phriday we’ll cover the best configuration settings for avoiding this and take a look at what kind of monitoring we can employ as an early warning system. Don’t let the prospect of Postgres XID wraparound make you dizzy!

  • Tuning max_wal_size in PostgreSQL

    Dave Page3/17/2022

    Tuning of the max_wal_size configuration parameter in PostgreSQL can have a profound effect on performance, but it's often overlooked or not given the priority it deserves in favour of other parameters, such as those that are easier to understand. In this blog we'll discuss what the parameter does, how to tune it, and how to monitor the system to ensure the tuning is effective.

  • Top 4 Considerations for Adopting Cloud Database Services

  • Replication Revue

    Shaun Thomas 2/24/2022

    The types of Postgres clusters we can build to achieve high availability is highly dependent on the replication technologies we employ, both now, and in the future. Let’s explore how Postgres replication evolved to what it is today, and how it could grow in the future. By understanding this, we can design clusters that take full advantage of the tools Postgres makes available, and be ready for coming enhancements.
