PostgreSQL 10 and Logical replication - Overview

Next PostgreSQL version is approaching. This version comes with an impressive feature list :

  • Native partionning
  • Sorts and aggregation improvements
  • Better parallelism support : parallel index scan, parallel hash join, parallelism for subquery
  • Extended statistics
  • ICU collation: enable use of “abbreviated keys”, disabled in 9.5.2 due to libc bug. Abbreviated keys brings sort improvements (arround 20-30%). It is usefull when a query need a sort or for index creation.
  • … look at wiki page New in Postgres 10 or releases notes.

Another attended feature is logical replication. I will present it in a serie of articles.
