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

pgBadger 11.6 was released today, this release of pgBadger adds support for PostgreSQL 14 new log information, fixes some issues reported by users since past seven months and adds some improvements:

  • Add detection of Query Id in log_line_prefix, new in PG14.
  • Add advanced regression tests with db exclusion and the explode feature.
  • Improve speed of reports generation when --explode is used by using multi-process.
  • Add --iso-week-number in incremental mode, calendar's weeks start on a Monday and respect the ISO 8601 week number, range 01 to 53, where week 1 is the first week that has at least 4 days in the new year.
  • Add command line option --keep-comments to not remove comments from normalized queries. It can be useful if you want to distinguish between same normalized queries.
  • Skip INFO lines introduced in PostgreSQL log file by third parties software.
  • Add compatibility with PostgresPro log file including rows number and size in bytes following the statement duration.
  • Parse times with T's to allow using the timestamps from journalctl.
  • Improve Windows port.

Backward compatibility:

  • Expect that --iso-week-number will be the default in next major release and that --start-monday option will be removed as the week will always start a Monday. The possibility to have week reports start a Sunday (current default) will be removed to simplify the code.
