05.27.2014 - PHP Next Generation



View PHP related news. When we aren't looking for pictures of kittens on the internet, internals developers are nearly always looking for ways to improve PHP, a few developers have a focus on performance.Over the last year, some research into the possibility of introducing JIT compilation capabilities to PHP has been conducted.During this research, the realization was made that in order to achieve optimal performance from PHP, some internal API's should be changed.This necessitated the birth of the phpng branch, initially authored by Dmitry Stogov, Xinchen Hui, and Nikita Popov. This branch does not include JIT capabilities, but rather seeks to solve those problems that prohibit the current, and any future implementation of a JIT capable executor achieving optimal performance by improving memory usage and cleaning up some core API's.By making these improvements, the phpng branch gives us a considerable performance gain in real world applications, for example a 20% increase in throughput for Wordpress. The door may well now be open for a JIT capable compiler that can perform as we expect, but it's necessary to say that these changes stand strong on their own, without requiring a JIT capable compiler in the future to validate them.The name "Next Generation" was optimistically presumptuous; in reality phpng is an internal project that we are working on, it is not a production ready branch that anyone should deploy, or judge as they would a release of PHP.The work on phpng, the doors it opens, the conversations it has started, the collaboration it is inspiring, are all worth getting excited about. But, we need to stay grounded, honest, and open; and say that there is much work to do in order to make the "Next Generation" a reality, this is only the start.

05.15.2014 - PostgreSQL 9.4 Beta 1 Released



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group announced that the first beta release of PostgreSQL 9.4, the latest version of the world's leading open source database, is available today. This beta contains previews of all of the features which will be available in version 9.4, and is ready for testing by the worldwide PostgreSQL community. Please download, test, and report what you find.

Major Features

The new major features available for testing in this beta include:

  • JSONB: 9.4 includes the new JSONB "binary JSON" type. This new storage format for document data is higher-performance, and comes with indexing, functions and operators for manipulating JSON data.
  • Replication: The new Data Change Streaming API allows decoding and transformation of the replication stream. This lays the foundation for new replication tools that support high-speed and more flexible replication and scale-out solutions.
  • Materialized Views with "Refresh Concurrently", which permit fast-response background summary reports for complex data.
  • ALTER SYSTEM SET, which enables modifications to postgresql.conf from the SQL command line and from remote clients, easing administration tasks.

These features expand the capabilities of PostgreSQL, and introduce new syntax, APIs, and management interfaces.

Additional Features

There are many other features in the 9.4 beta, all of which need testing by you:

  • Dynamic Background Workers
  • Replication Slots
  • Write Scalability improvements
  • Aggregate performance improvements
  • Reductions in WAL volume
  • GIN indexes up to 50% smaller and faster
  • Updatable security barrier views
  • New array manipulation and table functions
  • Time-delayed standbys
  • MVCC system catalog updates
  • Decrease lock level for some ALTER TABLE commands
  • Backup throttling
  • WITHIN GROUP

There have also been many internal changes in the inner workings of the Write Ahead Log (WAL), GIN indexes, replication, aggregation, and management of the system catalogs. The means we need you to help us find any new bugs that we may have introduced in these areas before the full release of 9.4.

For a full listing of the features in version 9.4 Beta, please see the release notes. Additional descriptions and notes on the new features are available on the 9.4 Features Wiki Page.

Test 9.4 Beta 1 Now

We depend on our community to help test the next version in order to guarantee that it is high-performance and bug-free. Please download PostgreSQL 9.4 Beta 1 and try it with your workloads and applications as soon as you can, and give feedback to the PostgreSQL developers. Features and APIs in Beta 1 will not change substantially before final release, so it is now safe to start building applications against the new features. More information on how to test and report issues

Get the PostgreSQL 9.4 Beta 1, including binaries and installers for Windows, Linux and Mac from our download page.

Full documentation of the new version is available online, and also installs with PostgreSQL.

05.13.2014 - pg_catcheck released



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

EnterpriseDB is pleased to announce the initial release of pg_catcheck, a catalog integrity checker for PostgreSQL and Postgres Plus Advanced Server.

pg_catcheck is a simple tool for diagnosing system catalog corruption, released under the same license as PostgreSQL itself. pg_catcheck reports logical errors in system catalogs, such as a value in pg_catalog.relnamespace that is not present in pg_namespace.oid. It is intended to make it easy to determine the nature and extent of system catalog corruption so that you (or your PostgreSQL support provider) can take whatever recovery actions you might deem appropriate, such as repairing enough of the damage to take a successful pg_dump of the damaged cluster. pg_catcheck has been tested on Linux and Windows and is expected to work on other operating systems, and it supports server versions 8.4 and newer.

For more details, see the source code and README here.

04.14.2014 - Barman 1.3.1 released



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

14 April 2014: 2ndQuadrant is proud to announce the release of version 1.3.1 of Barman, Backup and Recovery Manager for PostgreSQL.

This minor release introduces support for concurrent backup using physical file based copy through "rsync", in conjunction with pgespresso, a new open source extension available for PostgreSQL 9.2 and 9.3. Concurrent backup allows database administrators that rely on Barman, to finally offload backup operations to a streaming replicated standby server, opening new important scenarios in disaster recovery architectures of PostgreSQL 9.2+ database servers.

The "barman diagnose" command has been implemented to print important information about the system and the configuration of Barman, allowing users to provide detailed diagnostics data in case of support requests.

Version 1.3.1 fixes an important bug on recovery that was affecting only those users having tablespaces created inside the PGDATA directory. This behaviour was introduced in version 1.3.0.

Minor bugs have also been fixed.

Many thanks for funding towards the development of this release go to Adyen (www.adyen.com).

For a complete list of changes, see the "Release Notes" section below.

Release notes

  • Added support for concurrent backup of PostgreSQL 9.2 and 9.3 servers that use the "pgespresso" extension. This feature is controlled by the "backup_options" configuration option (global/server) and activated when set to "concurrent_backup". Concurrent backup allows DBAs to perform full backup operations from a streaming replicated standby.
  • Added the "barman diagnose" command which prints important information about the Barman system (extremely useful for support and problem solving)
  • Improved error messages and exception handling interface
  • Fixed bug in recovery of tablespaces that are created inside the PGDATA directory (bug introduced in version 1.3.0)
  • Fixed minor bug of unhandled -q option, for quiet mode of commands to be used in cron jobs (bug introduced in version 1.3.0)
  • Minor bug fixes and code refactoring
