  3. As a database administrator or developer, I would like to see PgBouncer logging.
    At minimal I should be able to see connection pool creation/deletion/changes and all outbound clients connected to which pool with source IPs.
    1. pgbouncer logs should be available by "avn service logs" and aiven console.
    2. pgbouncer logs should be available with rsyslog integration to 3rd parties.
    3. ideally logging level can be controlled by pg service config parameter pg.logerrorverbosity
    bonus: pgbouncer stats ingested into logging.

  4. It would be great to be able to see the end time of when a backup is completed.
    This way you can know how long the backup took. As well as monitor and see when the lock error will no longer occur.

  6. As a devops
    I want to have the service startup time in the GET service endpoint
    so that I can know I a service has been UP or STOPPED since more than 7 days for example. For now I have to fetch the activity logs of the project, then look up for the service, then look for the right event (if the status of the service is UP then I'm looking for the "servicepoweron" event else the "servicepoweroff") but sometimes the service is UP for more than 1 year so I can't find the startup date of the…

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

  8. 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.

  9. Aiven end customers and their security teams are asking for support for more modern authentication methods, mainly scram-sha256. Scram has been supported by Postgres since version 10. Introducing the support in Aiven platform would allow customers to enchance their database security.

  10. As a developer against my Aiven for Cassandra instance,
    I want to have advanced and customisable metrics that I can send to Datadog, in the same way I currently can for my Aiven for Kafka service,
    so that I can get the metrics that are important for monitoring and analysing my workload.

  12. As a database administrator or developer,
    I would like to be able to access and read binary logs of the database service by using third-party utilities,
    so that I would be able to perform the tasks security auditing, replication monitoring and possibly data recovery on the database.

  13. As a database administrator or developer, I would like to utilize the Orafce extension in PostgreSQL so that I can easily incorporate familiar database functions and packages from other systems, simplifying the migration process and ensuring compatibility with existing applications and data structures.

  14. As a Software Engineer or DBA, I want to be able to enforce schemas on JSON/JSONB fields in a convenient manner, so that I can ensure bad data doesn't getting written to my database. https://github.com/supabase/pg_jsonschema seems to be the most popular extension for doing this.

  15. Currently, MySQL slow query logs are stored in the mysql.slow_log table. Adding an option to redirect those logs into service logs would allow log integrations, like OpenSearch, to pick those up and give customers greater value and flexibility.

    It would implicitly solve the following:

  16. As a customer
    I want to change the values of innodb_buffer_pool_size, innodb_buffer_pool_instances, and innodb_buffer_pool_chunk_size
    so that I can tune the DB config to better suit my workload
    In addition, I understand that any changes should be within sensible limits, as taking too much memory away from the OS can cause OOM errors.

  17. 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.

  18. As a user of Aiven for Cassandra,
    I want to use the most optimized default settings possible. Apache Cassandra's defaults settings may be outdated as use case evolve and time passes.
    This comes without me, the user, having to change any settings. However, I should be able to tweak those settings if needed in specific cases.

  20. 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.
