Optimize The Performance of Your Database with Guaranteed Backup & Assured Recovery
EDB Architectural Health Check (AHC) analyzes the databases instances of EDB Postgres Advanced Server or PostgreSQL in order to determine whether they are in sync with your business application. It provides an effective base to:
- Enhance the performance of your current database system
- Assure a comprehensive business application with optimum performance
- Guarantee optimal configuration for your database by providing quick fixes
EDB AHC involves multiple activities accomplished aimed to improve the overall efficiency of the database. Some of them are as listed below:
EDB Architectural Health Check: A Practical Approach
EDB Architectural Health Check
Maximizes DB system performance
Robust maintenance of business application
Comprehensive approach for database inspection
EnterpriseDB's AHC process proved to be instrumental in improving the functionalities in real-time scenarios such as a Health Systems Project (HSP). It results in:
- Enhanced performance of database system
- Structured maintenance of a robust business application
- Detailed inspection of OS, database settings, Backup, Upgrades & HA options
Additionally, it offers excellent database infrastructure besides focusing upon fine tuning with optimum scalability.
Given below are the AHC recommendations resulting in minimal downtime.
Ensuring increased memory space is possible only when unused indices are deleted. Additionally, it is possible to increase performance with the provision to delete, insert, and manipulate as per the requirement.
- Tuning configuration parameters
Certain aspects of PostgreSQL facilitate configuration parameters tuning with respect to OS, database, and memory, which will help in increasing the performance. The current utilization of database proves to be one of the crucial factors in this regard.
Disaster Recovery (DR) Planning
Effective DR Planning from EnterpriseDB must be such that all the business applications run with minimum outage and without data loss. It leads to increased focus upon a backup strategy along with High Availability (HA).
Given below are the aspects that prove to be crucial for successful DR planning.
It involves a comprehensive approach with the inclusion of features such as Logical Backup, Physical Backup, Database Growth, Backup Frequency and more.
Realizing a failover mechanism through the HA options available from PostgreSQL will result in continued data access without realizing the effects of any disasters. The aspects involved are Slony Replication, Log Shipping, Hot Standby, Streaming Replication, and Cascading Replication.
EDB initiates several smart mechanisms for performance improvement by taking database design and application response into account. In order to achieve the desired level of output, it is necessary to focus upon concepts such as Re-Indexing, and Partitioning.
Thus, EDB's Architectural Health Check supports various crucial activities such as analyzing database activity. In fact, database activity monitoring is one of the crucial activities carried out to ensure optimized database performance. Some of the vital parameters taken into account in this regard are wait time, I/O, and CPU usage. Timely recommendations are provided in order to enhance the performance levels without compromising upon the standards.
