powa-archivist 4.2.0

The PoWA team is pleased to announce the release of the version 4.2.0 of powa-archivist, the core extension of the PoWA project, a PostgreSQL Workload Analyzer that gathers performance stats and provides real-time charts and graphs to help monitor and tune your PostgreSQL servers.

  • New feature
    • Add pg_stat_statements.toplevel field (Marc Cousin, Julien Rouhaud)
  • Bugfixes
    • Fix a possible long waiting time when the background worker is asleep and another session is waiting for a pending event, like a DROP DATABASE (Julien Rouhaud, thanks for github user anikin-aa for the report)
    • Fix pg_stat_kcache support when not all metrics are available (Julien Rouhaud)
  • Misc
    • Add compatibility with postgres 16 (Julien Rouhaud)
    • Immediately exit the bgworker in binary upgrade mode, which could lead to data corruption in the powa database (Julien Rouhaud)
