table_growth - a set of scripts for reporting table size growth in postgres

SYNOPSIS

Top

A set of schema, functions, and shell script to report table size growth.

VERSION

Top

This document refers to version 0.2 of table_growth, released December 9th, 2008

USAGE

Top

To use table_growth, you need to add the schema for holding table size information, install the included functions into your database, set up a cron job to do the data population, and set up a cron job to send the reports. We typically setup the conr jobs to look like this:

15 0 * * * psql -c "select otools.collect_table_growth(); select otools.summarize_table_growth(); " 1>/dev/null 

45 6 1 * * /var/lib/pgsql/scripts/table_growth_report.sh 1>/dev/null

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

Top

The package is designed to work on single databases at a time, if you want to report on multiple databases in a cluster, you will need to install this in each individual database, and also set cron jobs independently for each database.

Some actions may not work on older versions of Postgres (before 8.1)
