I’ll be attending PgEast this year, as I’ve done for the last couple of years, and this year I’ll also be speaking. The topic is query analysis with mk-query-digest. The official description of my talk is as follows:
mk-query-digest is a powerful open-source tool for capturing, filtering, transforming, and aggregating queries, with the ability to do all sorts of other advanced tasks too. By default, it aggregates similar queries together and presents a designed-for-DBAs report with statistics about the most important queries, so you can see where to focus your optimization efforts. This talk shows you how to use mk-query-digest to analyze your Postgres server’s workload.
PgEast 2010 has an impressive lineup of talks, which isn’t even complete yet. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this conference in the past, and it looks like this year will be better than ever.
