Join Peter Zaitsev, Percona CEO, and Ibrar Ahmed, Percona Sr. Software Engineer, as they discuss pg_stat_monitor.

If you're tasked with optimizing PostgreSQL performance, chances are you're relying on pg_stat_statements extension to capture information about query performance. While this extension provides a lot of great insights, PostgreSQL makes it possible to go even further! In this webinar, we introduce pg_stat_monitor – Open Source extension, based on pg_stat_statements which provide such advanced query performance details. We talk about additional design goals we had and why those are important, additional information we capture, and how you can use it to get your PostgreSQL running even faster.
