When: 7-9pm Thu November 17, 2011
Who: Mark Wong
What: collectd and Postgres
This presentation is primarily focused on how to use collectd (http://collectd.org/) to collect data from the Postgres statistics tables. Examples of how to use collectd with Postgres will be shown. There is some hackery involved to make collectd do a little more and collect more meaningful data from Postgres. These small patches will be exploited. A small portion of the discussion will be about how to visualize the data.
Mark hangs out at Postgres gatherings here and there to pass the time since he doesn’t really do performance work anymore. [ed: so sad!]
Beer afterwards at the Lucky Lab. See you there!
