pgbadger v11.5

pgBadger is a PostgreSQL performance analyzer, built for speed with fully detailed reports based on your PostgreSQL log files.

pgBadger 11.5 was released today, this is a maintenance release that fixes issues reported by users during last three months with some improvement:

  • Add report about sessions idle time, computed using: "total sessions time - total queries time / number of sessions This require that log_connection and log disconnection have been enabled and that log_min_duration_statement = 0 (all queries logged) to have a reliable value. This can help to know how much idle time is lost, and if a pooler transaction mode would be useful. This report is available in the "Sessions" tab of "Global Stats" and in the "Sessions" tab of "General Activity" reports (per hour).
  • Add anonymization of numeric values, replaced by 4 random digits.
  • Update SQL beautifier based on pgFormatter 5.0.
  • Fix parsing of Google CloudSQL log file multi-line statement.
  • Add support to microseconds in Heroku logplex log line prefix.
  • Add support to multi-line statement in jsonlog format.
