How to save statistics during major update, and what can be the consequences
It's not a secret for anyone that statistics can not be transferred with a major upgrade. For small and not heavily loaded databases this is not a problem, you can quickly collect new statistics. But we have databases with a volume of about 5TB and a load of about 100k rps, for which it became a big problem: taking off without statistics, the replicas could not even replay WAL. In my report I'll tell you what tricks we went to upgrade these databases with requirements of 100% read only availability, about what mistakes were made, and about how these errors were painfully corrected. The result of these errors was the extension called "pg_dirty_hands", in which we will collect various hacks, which can be last resort to repair data corruption.
Distributed Point-In-Time Recovery with Postgres
Postgres has a nice feature called Point-in-time Recovery (PITR) that would allow you to go back in time. In this talk, we will discuss what are the use-cases of PITR, how to prepare your database for PITR by setting good base backup and WAL shipping setups, with some examples. We will expand the discussion with how to achieve PITR if you have a distributed and sharded Postgres setup by mentioning challenges such as clock differences and ways to overcome them, such as two-phase commit and pg_create_restore_point.
