Monitoring PostgreSQL with New Relic Infrastructure

PostgreSQL, often simply referred to as Postgres, is an object-relational database management system. It is designed to handle a range of workloads, from single machines to data warehouses or web services with many concurrent users.

It excels at extensibility and standards compliance, but what if something goes wrong? It’s vital you have the right monitoring in place.

What you can monitor with our PostgreSQL integration

Sequential and index scans per second

See if you need to adjust your performance by creating more indices.


Table bloat

The amount of “bloat” on a table that is occupying memory but is not useful.

Number of connections

Visualize the amount of connections to PostgreSQL

You need to know what’s happening in your PostgreSQL clusters

PostgreSQL depends on access to resources such as CPU, memory, and network bandwidth. By monitoring that everything is properly provisioned, you can be sure your queries are functioning as efficiently as possible.

See your PostgreSQL metrics in pre-built dashboards

Visualize all your data, easily filter to a specific host, and correlate with other performance metrics.

Default postgresql dashboards

Track all PostgreSQL configuration changes

Understand configuration differences across your stack and quantify how configuration changes impact performance.

General Inventory Example

Know immediately when your performance is degrading

You can set up and receive alerts for any of the metrics captured, and stay on top of your PostgreSQL performance.
