An easier way to manage PostgreSQL databases has been released by EnterpriseDB.

Managing PostgreSQL has until now required scripts and the use of command line tools, but the new tool is graphical and much easier, according to from David Page, Senior Software Architect at EnterpriseDB.

According to the blog post, Postgres Enterprise Manager is based on the Open Source pgAdmin project, with the addition of a number of features for sysadmins, DBAs and developers with a focus on management of multiple servers.

Pgadmin is the command line tool that has till now been the main way of managing PostgreSQL. In addition to the graphical interface, the Enterprise Manager adds a dashboard showing details of how storage and memory are being used, along with what users and sessions are active. The software also has over 130 different alert templates that can be used to build customised alerts to warn when aspects of your database go outside of the norm.

There’s a SQL profiler that can be used to trace SQL statements and to identify SQL that is performing badly and why the performance is poor. Poorly running queries can also be run through the Index Advisor when work working with Postgres Plus Advanced Server advising on and optionally creating new indexes to improve query performance.

A utility called Postgres Expert is also included that analyses your Postgres servers and database schemas, advising on possible misconfigurations or sub-optimal designs.

EnterpriseDB is also launching a new Postgres Plus Cloud Server service. This will let companies use the database as a service with features including replication and failovers.

You can try out the first version of the Postgres Enterprise Manager (which can be used with both the free PostgreSQL and EnterpriseDB's commercial Postgres Plus Advanced Server) by downloading it from: http://www.enterprisedb.com/download-postgres-enterprise-manager.
