PostgreSQL Scaling Usecases

Today no one is surprised by cloud infrastructure anymore, but not all its components are easy to deploy in cloud. For example, the database is always very demanding in terms of performance and resources. Scaling and fault tolerance are the most acute problems, that's why we have been observing rapid development of alternative DBMS in the recent years. However, traditional relational DBMS have already accumulated a lot of various features, so they often remain the first choice. Besides, they are constantly evolving and offer a wide variety of scaling tools. I will mainly speak about PostgreSQL, when you should consider scaling, and how to do it right.

We will touch upon the following topics:
- Streaming replication and balancing read/write workloads
- Logical replication and data sharding
- High availability and fault tolerance

This talk should be interesting to DBAs, system administrators, team leads, infrastructure architects, as well as wider audience dealing with PostgreSQL.

    MobilityDB: Managing Mobility Data in PostgreSQL

    MobilityDB is an open source moving object database system (https://github.com/ULB-CoDE-WIT/MobilityDB). Its core function is to efficiently store and query mobility tracks, such as vehicle GPS trajectories. It implements the Moving Features specification from the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). MobiltyDB is engineered up from PostgreSQL and PostGIS, providing spatiotemporal data management via SQL. It thus integrates with the postgreSQL eco-system allowing for complex architectures such as mobility stream processing and cloud deployments.

    The presentation will explain the architecture of MobilityDB, its database types, indexes, and operations. We will highlight the PostgreSQL features that enable this extension, and the would like to have features. This presentation will be of special interest to the PostgreSQL community, and to professionals in the transportation domain.

    A retrospective look at the statistics

    To build a decent query plan, the optimizer has to understand statistical characteristics of underlying data. It is interesting to observe how the structure of the collected information became more complicated over time: what the optimizer relied on back in its early days and what is at his disposal now with the release of the 12th version. We will also talk about how and when statistics are collected, how to manage this process and whether it is necessary to think about it at all.

    The possibilities of profiling plpgsql code - available tools

    I like stored procedures - it is great technology. But like any other technologies it allows to write not well optimized code. It is not easy to write optimized code, sql statements in complex large applications. On second hand, there are some tools, that can be used very easily, that can help. Postgres has built-in tracking functions possibility. There are PLProfiler and plpgsql_check. With these tools is easy work to detect slow part of applications.With this knowledge, the fix of performance issue is less magic.

    PostgreSQL Certification Program: questions and answers.

    In May 2019 «Postgres Professional» launched the PostgreSQL Certification Program. Now you can not only get training in our courses, but also confirm your knowledge by passing an appropriate set of tests.

    In this presentation, I will share the results of the first months of the program and answer the most frequently asked questions:

    Where can I get information about the certification program?
    PostgreSQL or Postgres Pro certification?
    Certificates for PostgreSQL version 10. When will you upgrade to the current version?
    Do I have to attend training centers?
    Can I pass the test remotely? Not in Moscow?
    Is it possible to take several tests at once in one day?
    How to prepare for the test? Are there any examples of training questions?
    During the test I got an incorrect question, what should I do?
    How to find out exactly which questions the answers were not correct?
    When can I retake after an unsuccessful attempt?
    How to appeal the test results?
