Supports detailed reports
Key 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 charts
The 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 charts
In 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 OSes
The 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.
