Discover the challenges of running in the “cloud” as we share our experience with IO issues caused by the cloud infrastructure, providing insights into our analysis and resolution methods, emphasizing the potential risks and limitations of relying solely on cloud providers for issue resolution.

Yb_stats is used to obtain YugabyteDB database cluster status for troubleshooting, ad hoc analysis, and support. It gathers all needed facts from every cluster component and stores them in a “snapshot”. Let’s take a look at how this all works.
Every SQL execution in PostgreSQL and therefore in YugabyteDB YSQL takes time to process. A common way to identify how much is time spent on processing is to use the pg_stat_statements view in the database. However, the time visible in pg_stat_statements might differ from the time a database client registers for the execution. Where does this difference come from? Let’s take a look.
ybio is a PL/pgSQL based load generator for PostgreSQL and YSQL. This YugabyteDB-specific IO testing toolkit performs flexible IO testing to specific parts of the YugabyteDB infrastructure with no client installation. And because this toolkit is PL/pgSQL-based, it can also work on native PostgreSQL.
There are many secrets to creating a high-performing database application. One such secret is proper database connection management. However, this secret is not specific to YugabyteDB or PostgreSQL, but applies to any database.
In this post, we examine database connection management through the lens of YugabyteDB. We explore pools and performance, and run tests to measure the results. By the end of this post, you’ll have a clear sense of how to make efficient use of database connection management.
Linux is a general purpose operating system. This means it’s created to generally do what is right, instead of having specific code paths to perform what is right for a single specific task—and potentially be wrong for others.
Linux does not have tunable parameters for reserving memory for caching disk pages (the page cache), like operating systems such as HPUX (dbc_min_pct, dbc_max_pct) or AIX (minperm%, maxperm%). Instead,
Using Vagrant, anyone running Windows, Linux or Mac OS X can run and test drive a YugabyteDB cluster without the need to install and configure YugabyteDB. Plus, you can start over if you want to test something different in a matter of minutes, or scale up the cluster, etc.
Please mind that the Vagrant images are non-official images for demo and test purposes, and not configured nor representative for performance.
This is how it works (Mac OS X):
