PgBouncer Connection Pooler for Postgres Now Supports More Session Vars
Citus Data
by Citus Data
1M ago
PgBouncer is probably the most popular connection pooler for Postgres. It is essentially a transparant middleware between clients and the server. However, it is not %100 transparent in practice. There are a few intricacies that should be taken into account when using PgBouncer. One such consideration is that PgBouncer does not support the use of all session variables in transaction pooling mode. This lack of support is one of the reasons that the most commonly used transaction pooling mode is not fully compatible with Postgres. PgBouncer 1.20.0 started supporting two of the most requested sess ..read more

What’s in a name? Hello POSETTE: An Event for Postgres 2024

When I think about naming something—like a feature or product or even an event—this quote always comes to mind. What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet; –William Shakespeare What’s in a name, after all? I’m no expert on Romeo and Juliet, but friends tell me Shakespeare’s point was that names don’t matter. The thing itself is the thing itself, regardless of the name. My parents named my sister “Helen” at birth but never actually called her that. They always called her by a nickname, “Lyena”. So my sister’s sense of self became intertwined with her n ..read more

by Citus Data

PostgreSQL 16 introduces quite a few improvements to the query planner and makes many SQL queries run faster than they did on previous versions of PostgreSQL. If you look at the PG16 release notes, you’ll see some of these planner improvements. But with the volume of changes made in each PostgreSQL release, it’s not possible to provide enough detail about each and every change. So maybe you might need a bit more detail to know what the change is about—before you understand if it’s relevant to you. In this blog post, assuming you’ve already got a handle on the basics of EXPLAIN, you’ll get a de ..read more

Making PostgreSQL tick: New features in pg_cron

by Citus Data

pg_cron is an open source PostgreSQL extension that provides a cron-based scheduler to periodically run SQL commands. Almost every managed PostgreSQL service supports pg_cron and it has become a standard tool for many PostgreSQL users. Since Citus has been my full-time job, pg_cron has always been a side project for me, and so I tried to architect it for simplicity, reliability, and low maintenance. Of course, with many users there is a long list of feature requests, and with the help of the Postgres community pg_cron keeps becoming more and more capable over time. We recently added PostgreSQL ..read more
