Sixteen years ago, on May 21, 2008, we proudly announced the opening of the Italian branch of 2ndQuadrant, marking a milestone in PostgreSQL consulting and training in Europe. Simon Riggs, the visionary founder of 2ndQuadrant, placed immense trust in our small team from Prato, Tuscany. Tragically, Simon passed away on March 26, 2024, leaving a profound void. This article is my small tribute to Simon, his extraordinary leadership, and his invaluable contributions to the PostgreSQL community. It reflects on our journey, the challenges we faced, and the innovative spirit Simon instilled in us. De ..read more

Peter Eisentraut: New compilers, new timings
Planet PostgreSQL
by
18h ago
I had been eagerly awaiting the releases of Clang 18 and GCC 14 for the last few weeks. Now that they are both out, I figured I would check how fast they are for compiling PostgreSQL. (The actual reasons why I was awaiting these compiler releases are related to the warning option -Wmissing-variable-declarations. GCC 14 now supports this option and PostgreSQL might want to use it. On the Clang side, the new release of LLVM enables a new release of IWYU that handles global variable declarations correctly.) For the speed tests, I’m reusing the methodology from my previous articles about this last ..read more

We are excited to launch pg_timeseries: a PostgreSQL extension focused on creating a cohesive user experience around the creation, maintenance, and use of time-series tables. You can now use pg_timeseries to create time-series tables, configure the compression and retention of older data, monitor time-series partitions, and run complex time-series analytics functions with a user-friendly syntax. pg_timeseries is open-sourced under the PostgreSQL license and can be added to your existing PostgreSQL installation or tried as a part of the Timeseries Stack on Tembo Cloud.

Radim Marek: Deep Dive into PostgREST - Time Off Manager (Part 2)
Planet PostgreSQL
by
3d ago
Let's recap the first part of "Deep Dive into PostgREST," where we explored the basic functionality to expose and query any table using an API, demonstrated using cURL. All it took was to set up a db-schema and give the db-anon-role some permissions. But unless you are creating the simplest of CRUD applications, this only scratches the surface. In Part 2, we will expand APIs, provide better abstraction, and implement the foundation of what can be considered business logic, all while extending the sample "Time Off Manager" application. While the previous instalment being introductiory only, mak ..read more

Introduction When you send a query to PostgreSQL, it normally would go through stages of query processing and return you the results at the end. These stages are known as: Parse Analyze Rewrite Plan Execute I wrote another blog to briefly explain the responsibility of each query processing stage. You can find it here. In this blog. There is one that focuses primarily on the planner module that you can find here.
