In distributed databases like YugabyteDB, managing unique, sequential numbers across multiple applications can introduce latency. This blog explores the different ways YugabyteDB makes sequence generation efficient and offers insights on enhancing performance in distributed setups.
Monitoring logs is vital for system performance and issue identification. Splunk offers powerful log management and analytics, enabling comprehensive log analysis. In this blog, we explore exporting YugabyteDB logs to Splunk, providing a step-by-step guide.
Distributed SQL offers greater scalability, availability, and geo-distribution of data compared to PostgreSQL, but it is important to understand the differences in behaviors between the two systems in order to make the most of your distributed SQL database.
Discover how to identify CPU, RAM, or I/O pressure in your database by utilizing Linux metrics and the Pressure Stall Information (PSI) metric. This blog post also demonstrates how to query Linux information using PostgreSQL and the file_fdw extension, offering valuable insights for DBAs and developers.
Nikhil Mahawar with Mindgate discusses the challenges this fintech faced with their legacy RDBMS systems and how migrating to YugabyteDB improved scalability, performance, and reliability, enabling them to achieve their growth objectives. He highlights the benefits of YugabyteDB, including low-latency reads, high-throughput writes, automatic sharding, and support for SQL and NoSQL.
This blog post describes the benefits of full compactions, some of the scenarios where they are used, and how to best schedule them in YugabyteDB.
At Yugabyte, we welcome competition and criticism. We believe these aspects are essential to the wide adoption of a business-critical, fully open source project like YugabyteDB. Specifically, constructive criticism helps us improve the project for the benefit of our large community of users. Engineers at Cockroach Labs posted their analysis of how CockroachDB compares with YugabyteDB a few months ago. We thank them for taking the time to do so.
This benchmarking blog comparing YugabyteDB vs CockroachDB highlights key differences in handling distributed SQL workloads, emphasizing performance and feature advantages.
