EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager 7 Improves Management of Postgres

EnterpriseDB has released EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager 7. Part of the EDB Postgres Platform, EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager 7 provides a new web client and tools to give DBAs greater ability to improve database performance across large installations.

EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager provides a single graphical user interface where DBAs and developers can administer, monitor, and tune large Postgres deployments. EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager also integrates with failover and disaster recovery tools—required for creating highly available, mission-critical database architectures—and features APIs and alerts for management and monitoring.

The newest version is based on a flexible architecture that enables it to be deployed as a web application, making it easier to use. EnterpriseDB engineers developed the new architecture for the pgAdmin open source project, with contributions from the community. With this release, EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager extends the capabilities of the open source tool to include monitoring and alerting capabilities that are critical for digital business solutions that must meet stringent SLAs and performance requirements.

According to EnterpriseDB, the new web client adds greater flexibility for DBAs, and provides a responsive layout with dockable panels, partial page loading, and grid-based layouts with inline editing. The client also provides real-time database monitoring and management of database objects and provides a key feature for developers—a flexible query tool and debugger. 

In addition, new wizards, dashboards, and probes contribute to simplifying database administration. This includes status monitoring, auditing, log analysis, replication configuration, capacity planning, and forecasting, and a SQL Profiler assists with identifying and optimizing poor performing queries. With more than 225 preconfigured alerts, the tool is customizable with dashboards and charts to summarize and display trend information. Developer tools also provide query tuning and index recommendations, and enable execution of DDL and DML commands.

And finally, a REST API for deeper ecosystem integration enables DBAs to create, update, and retrieve probes and alerts; retrieve historical statistics and metrics; and manage configurations of EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager.
