  3. As DBA I want to have better logging using the PostgreSQL v15 logging feature to save the logs in JSON format so that I can integrate these logs in OpenSearch and provide better readability of these logs.

    This will provide 2 things:
    1 - Parse of the fields of the log entries -> give more capabilities searching the logs - easily filter some field like user/database/application name
    2 - Multi line queries in one log entry -> right now, multi line queries saves each line in a different log entry, which is very hard to filter a full query since…

  4. As developer or DBA
    I want to be able to reproduce the behavior of Oracle Autonomous Transaction inside Postgres.
    so that I can create a different transaction that is not impacting the current one. Use case can be logging for example),
    In addition, this can be achieved using DBLinks but it requires to put the password inside a plSQL function. To avoid that, Aiven could have a new parameter allowing local connections without password.

  5. As a user managing PostgreSQL service accounts through Terraform,
    I want to ensure that enabling the replication option using your Terraform provider does not lead to the recreation of the service account.
    This way, the service account can retain its ownership and privileges over database objects such as tables and functions, avoiding potential disruptions.
    Additionally, maintaining ownership and privileges is crucial for seamless operation and consistency in our database management processes.

  8. As a security administrator or developer, I would like to utilize Row-Level Security (RLS) in PostgreSQL so that I can control data access at a granular level based on specific conditions, ensuring that users only see and modify the data they are authorized to access. Additionally, I want the ability to assign the BYPASSRLS attribute to trusted roles or users when necessary, allowing them to have unrestricted access to data while still maintaining overall security.

  11. As a database administrator or developer, I would like to integrate PostgreSQL with external databases using the TDS protocol so that I can seamlessly access data in Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase databases from within PostgreSQL using standard SQL queries. This feature simplifies data integration and allows for efficient cross-database operations without the need for complex data migration processes.

  14. As backend and DevOps engineer / SRM, I want to be able to visualize in Grafana metrics related to WAL files buildup due to lagging or missing replication slots.
    This will help us debug WAL bloat which might exhaust the disk space and better understand the cause.

    Mainly the metric filecount_size_bytes will be useful. Also any metric that would allow us to monitor per database service:
    1. Total WAL size.
    2. Size of WAL retained due to replication lag.
    3. Rate in which we consume the WAL for the replication over time (connector consumption rate).
    4. Rate in which we…

  15. A fast way to optimize my PostgreSQL & MySQL queries automatically.

    As a software engineer, I would like to submit my query and receive a newly rewritten version of the query, optimized to run 10 times faster. These optimizations could potentially save my team an average of 50 weekly hours, which are currently spent manually optimizing these queries.
    I would like to perform these optimizations directly from Aiven's console, even if my Database is not hosted on Aiven yet.

    Additionally, It is critical that the optimization process be 100% non-intrusive and not require access to my databases' sensitive data.

  17. A fast way to optimize my PostgreSQL & MySQL databases automatically.

    As a software engineer/DevOps, I would like to see my slowest queries and receive recommendations along with a newly rewritten version of the query, optimized to run 10 times faster.

    I would like to perform these optimizations directly from Aiven's console.

  18. As a DBA or developer,
    I want to be able to stop/start my services without losing replication slots
    so that I can resume my logical replication flows even after a power cycle.

    Similar recreation is currently done during nodes failover: https://aiven.io/blog/aiven-for-pg-recreates-logical-replication-slots

  20. As a database administrator or developer,
    I would like to utilize the pgstatkcache extension in PostgreSQL,
    so that I would be able to gather statistics on system metrics such as CPU usage and physical disk access, and see how much resource each query, user and/or database is consuming.
