pgBadger 2.0 released

Paris, France - September 5th, 2012

DALIBO is proud to announce the release of version 2.0 of pgBadger, the new PostgreSQL log analyzer. pgBadger is built for speed with fully detailed reports from your PostgreSQL log file. It's a single and small Perl script that aims to replace and outperform the old php script pgFouine.

Less than two month after the first release of pgBadger, this new major version adds some features requested by many users such as :

  • Better handling of the rotated log files by allowing incremental runs with the -l option. This is useful if you don't rotate your log files and your HTML reports at the same frequency.
  • New SQL format beautifier. You can now click on any SQL query in the HTML report and the new SQL Formatter will display it gracefully.
  • CSV log parser was entirely rewritten to handle csv with multiline.

Every one should upgrade as soon as possible.

Please note that some changes break the backward compatibility with previous versions. Options -p and -g are not used anymore. Progress bar (-p) and graphs generation (-g) are now enabled by default. The obsolete -l option previously used to specify the log file to parse has been reused to specify an incremental file.

Please also note that the license has changed from BSD-like to the PostgreSQL license.

DALIBO would like to thank the developpers who submitted patches and the users who reported bug and features request. For the complete list of pgBadger 2.0 bugfixes and new features, please read the changelog.

pgBadger is an open project. Any contribution to build a better tool is welcome. You just have to send your ideas, features request or patches using the GitHub tools or directly to our mailing list.
