The catalog pg_index contains part of the information about indexes. The rest is mostly in pg_class.
Table 43-18. pg_index Columns
|indexrelid||oid||pg_class.oid||The OID of the pg_class entry for this index|
|indrelid||oid||pg_class.oid||The OID of the pg_class entry for the table this index is for|
|indnatts||int2||The number of columns in the index (duplicates pg_class.relnatts)|
|indisunique||bool||If true, this is a unique index|
|indisprimary||bool||If true, this index represents the primary key of the table. (indisunique should always be true when this is true.)|
|indisclustered||bool||If true, the table was last clustered on this index|
|indisvalid||bool||If true, the index is currently valid for queries. False means the index is possibly incomplete: it must still be modified by INSERT/UPDATE operations, but it cannot safely be used for queries. If it is unique, the uniqueness property is not true either|
|indkey||int2vector||pg_attribute.attnum||This is an array of indnatts values that indicate which table columns this index indexes. For example a value of 1 3 would mean that the first and the third table columns make up the index key. A zero in this array indicates that the corresponding index attribute is an expression over the table columns, rather than a simple column reference.|
|indclass||oidvector||pg_opclass.oid||For each column in the index key this contains the OID of the operator class to use. See pg_opclass for details|
