** Title : A detailed understanding of MVCC, Transaction ID Wraparound and Autovacuum internals in PostgreSQL. **

  • *Abstract : *

    • PostgreSQL implements MVCC in a slightly different way when compared to databases like Oracle, MySQL and others. In PostgreSQL, you see a different method for managing UNDO which requires a cleanup concept called vacuum. Over a period of time, PostgreSQL implemented autovacuum that has been enhanced with every release. It is now important for PostgreSQL admins/DevOPS to understand the internals of autovacuum and the MVCC implementation. We shall discuss these topics in detail during this talk.
  • *This talk includes - *

    • 1. MVCC in PostgreSQL.
    • 2. Transaction ID Wraparound
    • 3. Vacuum and Autovacuum Internals.
    • 4. Parameters you should know to understand how autovacuum works.
    • 5. Problems you may see in a busy OLTP database with untuned autovacuum settings.
    • 6. Methods to tune the autovacuum parameters in PostgreSQL.
