PostgreSQL Monitoring Tools

PostgreSQL is an open-source object-relational database management system with an emphasis on extensibility and standards-compliance. As a database server, its primary function is to store data securely, supporting best practices, and to allow for retrieval at the request of other software applications. By utilizing our PostgreSQL Opspack, you can ensure your system is properly handling workloads that can range from small single-machine applications to large Internet-facing applications with many concurrent users. Opsview also monitors may other types of databases besides PostgreSQL.

What You Can Monitor

Opsview's PostgreSQL monitoring tools track performance metrics including running queries and port listener checks. Full visibility into this information allows you to ensure your database is running at full speed, enabling you to monitor any and every change over time with our Opsview reporting module.
