PostgreSQL: Partitioned Table vs Non Partitioned Table (Part 3)

This article compares the speed and performance of queries between partitioned and non partitioned PostgreSQL tables. However, it is important to remember that the PostgreSQL tables partitioning has also another benefits, than the better performance on queries. More information about other benefits from the first part 'Howto create PostgreSQL table partitioning (Part 1)'. This is comparision between partitioned and non partitioned PostgreSQL tables. The same tests were carried out with and...

PHP Script to Generate PostgreSQL Table Partitioning (Part 2)

As Part 1 (Howto create PostgreSQL table partitioning) shows, making of PostgreSQL partitioning needs a lot of SQL commands. So this Part 2 explains how SQL commands for PostgreSQL partitioning can be made with a simple PHP script. This example script make SQL for child tables, indexes, trigger function and parent table trigger. This example script can make PostgreSQL table partitioning with using Date ranges. Script can be configured with following configuration section: Initial...

Create PostgreSQL Table Partitioning (Part 1)

PostgreSQL supports partitioning via table inheritance. So the partitioning is made in such a way that every child table inherits single parent table. Parent table is empty and it exists just to describe the whole data set. PostgreSQL partitioning can be implemented in range partitioning or list partitioning. Range partitioning can be done for example by ID ranges (like 0-100 000, 100 001-200 000, 200 001-300 000...) or Date ranges (like 2009-11-01 - 2009-11-30, 2009-12-01 -...

Partitioning PostgreSQL Tables – Handle Millions of Rows Efficiently

PostgreSQL table partitioning means splitting one large database table into smaller logical pieces. PostgreSQL table partitioning will be worthwhile only when a table would be very large. Here are a few benefits of what can be achieved with partitioning: Large tables query performance can be improved dramatically Reducing index size and making it more likely that the heavily-used parts of the indexes fit in memory Rarely used data can be moved to slower and cheaper storage...

PostgreSQL Sleep Function pg_sleep – Postgres Delay Execution

One day, I was looking for PostgreSQL database function, which could delay the execution of queries. At first I thought that I will do one myself, because I do not remember ever seen this kind function. But then I found pg_sleep Postgres function which directly delay execution of the server process. pg_sleep makes the current session's process sleep until seconds seconds have elapsed. Seconds is a value of type double precision, so fractional-second delays can be specified. pg_sleep...

PostgreSQL: Select a Random Number in a Range (Between Two Numbers)

This is quick tip howto select a random number in a range. Example random number between 1-100 (>= 1 and < 100).
