2ndQuadrant is pleased to announce the release of the RC1 version of 2UDA (2ndQuadrant Unified Data Analytics). 2UDA is a data analytics application suite that unifies databases, spreadsheets, data mining and visualisation in one seamless desktop installer.
This new release continues to provide easy installation of three open source applications for visual data analysis: PostgreSQL 9.5 RC1, Orange 3.2. and LibraOffice 5.0, which together offer a powerful combination of database, data visualization and spreadsheet in a single, easy-to-use package.
Following the initial release of 2UDA Beta 1 back in October and subsequent release of Beta 2 in November, the development team have continued to make lots of improvements, creating a highly stable product and fixing all of the bugs discovered to date.
Significant improvements to Orange address the requests for additional features and now include:
A 'Report' button that can prepare reports of performed analyses.
Data loading from Google Sheets URLs
New widgets added: Distance Transformation, Random Forest
Regression, Regression Tree, Regression Tree Graph.
For more details on all the new features and enhancements, refer to the release notes.
We are particularly appreciative of the people trialling 2UDA and providing valuable feedback to the development team, for both the beta 1 release and more recently beta 2.
This is helping us build a robust software package ahead of GA in January 2016. We encourage everyone to continue to test 2UDA as new versions are released and give us your feedback.
2UDA RC1 is available to download at http://2ndquadrant.com/2uda

DALIBO is proud to present the third release of PoWA, the PostgreSQL Workload
Realtime traffic analysis and dynamic graphs
PoWA is a workload analyzer that gives a clear view of the activity of
your PostgreSQL servers with a query runtime graph and a block hit/read graph
along with a chart of time-consuming queries over the specified time period.
If you zoom anywhere in one of the graphs, the chart will adjust and show you
which queries were running at that time. If you click on a specific query, you
will get additional graphs such as read/write time, number of rows affected,
local and shared hit, etc.
Better predicate analyzer
The pg_qualstats extension stores
new counters. It's now possible to know the most executed predicates in
relation to all the related queries. It also tracks non-normalized queries so
that it’s possible to execute an EXPLAIN of any query tracked by pg_stat_statements.
Database global optimization
PoWA is now able to use statistics about every predicate used by any query
executed on a database to suggest the smallest index set that optimizes every one of those predicates.
In particular, the heuristics place heavy emphasis in consolidating many
indexes into one by giving preference to definitions spanning multiple
columns. This can provide new information about the actual load and correlation
between predicates that are traditionally hard to discover for the DBA.
Index suggestion check
Thanks to the HypoPG extension, the benefits of the
suggested index creations can automatically be checked by running the queries
against hypothetical indexes.
You can see instantly if the suggested index is relevant and how much it'll
improve the query.
DALIBO would like to thank the users and developers who contributed to this
PoWA is an open project available under the PostgreSQL License. Any
contribution to build a better tool is welcome. You just have to send your
ideas, patches or features requests using the GitHub tools or to email@example.com
For PoWA 3.0.0:
For the stats extensions:
PoWA is PostgreSQL Workload Analyzer that gathers performance stats and
provides real-time charts and graph to help monitor and tune your PostgreSQL

Ora2Pg 16 released
Version 16.0 of Ora2Pg, a free and reliable tool used to migrate an
Oracle database to PostgreSQL, has been officially released and is
publicly available for download.
This major release improve PL/SQL code replacement, fixes several
bugs and adds some major new features:
- Full migration of MySQL database, it just work like with Oracle database.
- Full migration assessment report for MySQL database.
- New script, ora2pg_scanner, to perform a migration assessment of all Oracle and MySQL instances on a network.
- Add technical difficulty level in migration assessment.
- Allow migration assessment on client queries extracted from AUDIT_TRAIL (oracle) or general_log table (mysql).
- Ora2Pg has a "made in one night" brand new Web site (still need some work) http://ora2pg.darold.net/
Example of technical difficulty level assessment output using the
sakila database with some more difficulties:
Total 83.90 cost migration units means approximatively 1 man-day(s).
Migration level: B-5
Here are the explanation of the migration level code:
A - Migration that might be run automatically
B - Migration with code rewrite and a human-days cost up to 5 days
C - Migration with code rewrite and a human-days cost above 5 days
1 = trivial: no stored functions and no triggers
2 = easy: no stored functions but with triggers, no manual rewriting
3 = simple: stored functions and/or triggers, no manual rewriting
4 = manual: no stored functions but with triggers or views with code rewriting
5 = difficult: stored functions and/or triggers with code rewriting
This is to help you to find the database that can be migrated first
with small efforts (A and B) and those who need to conduct a full
migration project (C).
This release has also some new useful features:
- Export type SHOW_TABLE now shows additional information about table type (FOREIGN, EXTERNAL or PARTITIONED with the number of partition).
- Connection's user and password can be passed through environment variables ORA2PG_USER and ORA2PG_PASSWD to avoid setting them at ora2pg command line.
- Improve PL/SQL replacement on ADD_MONTH(), ADD_YEAR(), TRUNC(), INSTR() and remove the replacement limitation on DECODE().
- Add detection of migration difficulties in views, was previously reserved to functions, procedures, packages and triggers.
- Replace values in auto generated configuration file from command line options -s, -n, -u and -p when --init_project is used.
- Adjust lot of scores following new functionalities in Ora2Pg, ex: autonomous transactions, dblink or synomyms are now more easy to migrate.
There is some new command line options to ora2pg script:
- -m | --mysql : to be used with --init_project and -i option to inform ora2pg that we work with a MySQL format
- -T | --temp_dir : option to be able to set a distinct temporary directory to run ora2pg in parallel.
- --audit_user : option to set the user used in audit filter and enable migration assessment report on queries from AUDIT_TRAIL (oracle) or general_log table (mysql).
- --dump_as_sheet and --print_header options to be able to compute a CSV file with all migration assessment from a list of oracle database.
- --dump_as_csv option to report assessments into a csv file. It will not include comments or details, just objects names, numbers and cost.
Some change can break backward compatibility:
- Change NULL_EQUAL_EMPTY to be disabled by default to force change in the application instead of transforming the PL/SQL.
This release adds some new configuration directives:
- MYSQL_PIPES_AS_CONCAT: Enable it if double pipe and double ampersand (|| and &&) should not be taken as equivalent to OR and AND.
- MYSQL_INTERNAL_EXTRACT_FORMAT: Enable it if you want EXTRACT() replacement to use the internal format returned as an integer.
- AUDIT_USER: Set the comma separated list of user name that must be used to filter from the DBA_AUDIT_TRAIL or general_log tables.
- REPLACE_ZERO_DATE: the "zero" date: 0000-00-00 00:00:00 is replaced by a NULL by default, use it to use the date of your choice. Useful when you have a NOT NULL constraint.
- INDEXES_RENAMING: force renaming of all indexes using a name with tablename_columnsnames. Useful for database that have multiple time the same index name or that use the same name than a table.
- HUMAN_DAYS_LIMIT: default to 5 days, used to set the number of human-days limit for migration of type C.
As usual there is also some bug fixes and Oracle to PostgreSQl
conversion adjustments, for a complete list see the changelog.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported versions of our database system, including 9.4.5, 9.3.10, 9.2.14, 9.1.19 and 9.0.23. This release fixes two security issues, as well as several bugs found over the last four months. Users vulnerable to the security issues should update their installations immediately; other users should update at the next scheduled downtime. This is also the final update release for major version 9.0.
Two security issues have been fixed in this release which affect users of specific PostgreSQL features:
CVE-2015-5289: json or jsonb input values constructed from arbitrary user input can crash the PostgreSQL server and cause a denial of service.
CVE-2015-5288: The crypt() function included with the optional pgCrypto extension could be exploited to read a few additional bytes of memory. No working exploit for this issue has been developed.
The PostgreSQL project thanks Josh Kupershmidt and Oskari Saarenmaa for reporting these issues.
This update will also disable SSL renegotiation by default; previously, it was enabled by default. SSL renegotiation will be removed entirely in PostgreSQL versions 9.5 and later.
Other Fixes and Improvements
In addition to the above, many other issues were patched in this release based on bugs reported by our users over the last few months. These fixes include:
- Prevent deeply nested regex, LIKE and SIMILAR matching from crashing the server
- Multiple other fixes with regular expression handling
- Ensure that ALTER TABLE sets all locks for CONSTRAINT modifications
- Fix subtransaction cleanup when a cursor fails, preventing a crash
- Prevent deadlock during WAL insertion when commit_delay is set
- Fix locking during updating of updatable views
- Prevent corruption of relation cache "init file"
- Improve performance of large SPI query results
- Improve LISTEN startup time
- Disable SSL renegotiation by default
- Lower minimum for *_freeze_max_age parameters
- Limit the maximum for wal_buffers to 2GB
- Guard against potential stack overflows in several areas
- Fix handling of DOW and DOY in datetime input
- Allow regular expression queries to be canceled sooner
- Fix assorted planner bugs
- Fix several shutdown issues in the postmaster
- Make anti-wraparound autovacuuming more robust
- Fix minor issues with GIN and SP-GiST indexes.
- Fix several issues with PL/Python, PL/Perl and PL/Tcl
- Improve pg_stat_statements' garbage collection
- Improve collation handling in pgsql_fdw
- Improve libpq's handling of out-of-memory conditions
- Prevent psql crash when there is no current connection
- Multiple fixes to pg_dump, including file and object permissions
- Improve handling of privileges when dumping from old PostgreSQL versions
- Fix issues with support of Alpha, PPC, AIX and Solaris platforms
- Fix startup issue on Windows with Chinese locale
- Fix Windows install.bat script to handle spaces in filenames
- Make the numeric PostgreSQL version number available to extensions
This update also contains tzdata release 2015g, with updates for Cayman Islands, Fiji, Moldova, Morocco, Norfolk Island, North Korea, Turkey, Uruguay, and the new zone America/Fort_Nelson.
Final Update for 9.0
9.0.23 is the final update for major version 9.0, which is now End-Of-Life (EOL) as scheduled. Future security updates will not include version 9.0. As such, users of that version should plan to upgrade to another major version as soon as possible. For more information about the community's support policy and EOL schedule, see the Versioning Policy.
All PostgreSQL update releases are cumulative. As with other minor releases, users are not required to dump and reload their database or use pg_upgrade in order to apply this update release; you may simply shut down PostgreSQL and update its binaries. Users who have skipped multiple update releases may need to perform additional post-update steps; see the Release Notes for details.
