  1. 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.

  2. As a DBA
    I want to access the pg_monitor role
    so that I can integrate with my in-house monitoring solution
    In addition, this could be via aiven-extras or an advanced configuration if necessary

  3. As an Operations Engineer
    I want to have logs in JSON format
    so that I can process them in third-party log management and analytics systems without having to write custom parsing rules.

  4. As a database administrator or developer,
    I would like to utilize the pgwaitsampling extension in PostgreSQL,
    so that I would be able to gather sampling-based statistics on wait events for troubleshooting dependencies for queries that take longer than expected.

  5. As a database administrator or developer,
    I would like to access the service upgrade logs after a failed and reverted upgrade,
    so that I would be able to troubleshoot the problem myself before retrying, and without requiring the assistance of the support team.

  6. As a developer,
    I want to connect to my Aiven for Postgres services without providing credentials and use only certificate authentication as offered by Postgres https://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/auth-cert.html
    so that I can be compliant with my internal security policies

  7. Make it possible to change the default SSL mode.
    This way, by setting this value to "verify-full", we can make it so that anyone trying to connect to the database MUST have the CA certificate.

    Because currently, what's the point of the CA certificate if it is not mandatory?

  8. 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…

  9. Allowing WAL compression could be beneficial for several reasons: reduction of disk space usage, IO efficiency, faster replication, generally improving performance.

  10. As a developer, I would like to enable the PGroonga extension for PostgreSQL so that I can harness the full-text search capability of PostgreSQL across all languages, including Japanese and Chinese, enhancing the versatility and inclusivity of my search functionality.

  11. As a DBA
    I want to be able to click a button or call an API to initiate a primary -> secondary failover
    so that I can recover from an issue that Aiven isn't detecting, or so I can exercise my own availability tests.
    This should be available for all DB engines.

    Thank you

  12. As a DBA or developer, I want to be warned if I am updating a parameter that will trigger a restart of my instance so that I can understand the consequences and avoid issues/mistakes.

    Example of parameters: sharedbufferspercentage, autovacuumfreezemax_age

  13. As Database Administrator or Engineer,
    I want to be able to edit the PgBouncer maxpreparedstatements configuration parameter, as it has a direct impact in the latency of the consumers of the database through the pool.

    Also, the default setting of 100 max prepared statements that Aiven has in the system is incorrect and will cause issues with ORM users when they upgrade the pgbouncer version in Aiven.

  15. As a database administrator or developer, I would like to enable 'active-active replication' in PostgreSQL so that I can ensure high availability for my database, minimize downtime during node failures, and efficiently distribute read and write workloads for effective load balancing.

  16. As a database administrator or developer, I would like to use PL/Rust as a trusted procedural language in PostgreSQL so that I can write natively-compiled functions in Rust for maximum performance, leverage Rust's extensive development ecosystem, and benefit from its compile-time safety guarantees, while seamlessly integrating with Postgres' Server Programming Interface and data types.

  17. As a database administrator or developer, I would like to have Trusted Language Extensions for PostgreSQL (pg_tle) so that I can seamlessly extend and manage PostgreSQL functionality without needing filesystem access, addressing the challenge of adding extensions in restricted environments and enhancing security by allowing unprivileged users to install and use trusted extensions.

  19.
