Monitoring PostgreSQL execution plans
pg_show_plans is a free PostgreSQL tool which allows you to monitor execution plans in real-time. In the past, it was not possible to monitor query plans while the SQL statement was still running. With the introduction of pg_show_plans, these restrictions are lifted. Now you can see exactly what is happening on your server – live and in real-time.
- Inspect execution plans in real-time
- Support for various output formats (text, JSON, etc.)
- Support for nested plans
pg_show_plans is available for all recent versions of PostgreSQL ( >= 9.5).
- Dissect slow queries while they are still running
- Real-time insights
- Easy to use
- 100% Enterprise ready
Inspecting all active plans
pg_show_plans is a free extension for PostgreSQL which can be downloaded directly from our GitHub page. It uses PostgreSQL core functionality to provide you with all necessary insights.
Data is exposed as a simple view and can be fetched easily. Therefore, pg_show_plans can be attached to any monitoring of your choice. We have already successfully implemented pg_show_plans within our extensive monitoring solution PGWatch.
