This release makes several changes to the PostgreSQL Operator Monitoring solution, notably making it much easier to set up a turnkey PostgreSQL monitoring with the PostgreSQL Operator using the open source pgMonitor project.

pgMonitor combines insightful queries for PostgreSQL with several proven tools for statistics collection, data visualization, and alerting to allow one to deploy a turnkey monitoring solution for PostgreSQL. Now with support for Kubernetes environments, pgMonitor uses open source pgnodemx that allows one to get host-like information from the Kubernetes Pod a PostgreSQL instance is deployed within.

Major features of the 4.5 release include:
