This project provides a command-line and fast PostgreSQL log analyzer for Linux.
pgBadger is an open source and cross-platform software project that has been designed from the ground up to act as a command-line software written in Perl, which can be used by system administrators and database developers to analyze PostgreSQL database logs much faster than if they were using other tools.read more
Supports detailed reportsKey features include support for viewing detailed reports about SQL queries, including overall statistics, queries that were very slow, queries that took up a lot of time, the most frequently used queries, queries that generated a large number of temporary files, queries that waited the most, queries that generated the biggest temporary files, as well as the most frequent errors.
Supports pie chartsThe application also provides users with support for pie charts, allowing them to lock statistics, view queries by type, including delete, insert, select and update, view sessions per user, client or database, view connections per user, client or database, view histogram of query times, display auto-analyze and auto-vacuum per table, as well as to show distribution of queries type per application or database.
Supports time-based chartsIn addition to the above, pgBadger also supports time-based charts, which can display statistics about SQL queries, statistics about checkpoints, temporary file statistics, auto-analyze and auto-vacuum statistics, as well as histograms of hourly events or errors, and query duration/count.
Under the hood and supported OSesThe program is written entirely in the Perl programming language, which means that it is a platform-independent application designed to support all GNU/Linux distributions, various BSD flavors, as well as the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Both 32-bit and 64-bit hardware platforms are supported at this moment.
