Postgres Enterprise Manager, is the only solution available today that allows you to intelligently manage, monitor, and tune large numbers of Postgres database servers enterprise-wide from an integrated graphical console. The highlights for v3.0 include a web-based client that allows you access to your monitoring data anytime anywhere from any browser enabled device. In addition, DBAs jobs are simplified by a new Log Manager that configures logging across multiple databases at once and displays a consolidated view of all logs. Other great features include ssh tunneling for easier access outside the firewall, multiple monitoring improvements, and the ability to use Postgres Plus Advanced Server as the backend database for the central Enteprise Manager server. Along with the recent features for SMTP/SNMP alerts, segregating servers by Teams, and the Audit Manager, no other tool comes close to providing powerful features and ease of use in a professional enterprise grade monitoring and management tool for Postgres.
Note: EDB no longer provides Linux installers for PostgreSQL 11 and later versions, and users are encouraged to use the platform-native packages. Version 10.x and below will be supported until their end of life. For more information, please see this blog post on Platform Native EDB Packages for Linux Users.
1: What does the registration key mean?
A registration key is a one-of-a-kind ID generated by the FME Licensing Assistant from system data. It's Safe's way of limiting a single fixed license to a single computer.

PostgreSQL is the world’s most advanced open source database and the fourth most popular database. In development for more than 20 years, PostgreSQL is managed by a well-organized and highly principled and experienced open source community. It is an object-oriented database that is fully ACID compliant and highly extensible, enabling the community to add new features and capabilities as workload demands evolved.
Because of its extensibility, PostgreSQL offers a wide variety of built-in PostgreSQL data types including JSON, XML, HSTORE (key-value), Geo-spatial (PostGIS), IPv6; flexible indexing, featuring composite indexes, GiST, SP- GiST, GIN; full Text Search, online index reorganization; background workers such as a managed process known as Mongress, which accepts MongoDB queries to interface with Postgres data; a contrib module interface: pgcrypto (data encryption), pg_trgm (find ‘similar’ data), HSTORE (schema-less data); and extensive SQL support.
Today’s post will be all about monitoring your PostgreSQL database clusters using EDB PostgreSQL Enterprise Manager (PEM). Postgres Enterprise Manager is a comprehensive, customizable solution providing an interface to control and optimize your PostgreSQL deployment.
I will be doing the installation, configuration, adding servers to the console and will perform a live monitoring of the database while I will be generating some synthetic load on the database host. I am doing this on a standalone RHEL 7 64 Bit server which I will be using it both as a PEM server and local instance. Alright, so without further ado, lets start. So, first you need to download EDB’s official repository and install following package.
Here on the left panel you will notice there’s already one database present under ‘PEM Server Directory’ folder, this is the same database which we have configured/used PEM server, hence it will be automatically added to the server list. We will manually add one more database cluster to explain how to do it explicitly.
Let’s check the dashboard for the same (PEM Server) database for session, TPS, IO related details.
Now, let’s add another database to the monitoring console. I will be adding a community PostgreSQL 12 database to it. Go to ‘PEM Server Directory’ folder right click on it, choose option create-> server.
Database administration and management is required for any database on which there are continuous business transactions. If databases across enterprises are not monitored and maintained, then such databases are vulnerable to disasters, which eventually brings downtime to missions-critical application and, of course, it will incur losses in the business. Data is now one of the key assets for running a business, globally. Hence, it is one of the major responsibilities of enterprises to invest in resources for database monitoring and management. There are many database management and monitoring tools available for proactive database monitoring. In this article, we will look at PEM – “PostgreSQL Enterprise Manager”.Enterprise Manager, or PEM, is a graphical database management/monitoring tool that can help database administrators, system administrators, database developers, database managers, system architects, and performance analysts manage databases efficiently and proactively. PEM has a rich user interface for performing many database administration activities from a single console.
“Why do we need additional software for database management?” Many customers/managers have asked me this and I would like to answer in simple words – “PEM provides a single console for managing and administering single/multiple databases at a single site or across multiple locations . PEM allows full control of databases remotely for better and more efficient database management.
Architecture of Postgres Enterprise Manager:
The diagram below illustrates the Postgres Enterprise Manager Deployment architecture. Postgres Enterprise Manager has three different layers in its deployment.
Postgres Enterprise Manager Architecture
Postgres Enterprise Manager Server is the main software, which can be installed on an existing Postgres database server or on a fresh server. PEM Server needs its own database, used for maintaining the EM repository and for storing information on all its target databases. Currently PEM Server is supported on the Windows and Linux platforms.
Postgres Enterprise Manager Agent is lightweight software that is installed on database server hosts. This software is responsible for connecting to the database and uploading collected statistics to the Postgres Enterprise Manager Server. The information is transported between management agent and management server using SSL certificates.
Client is the end layer, from which all added target databases are monitored. Client has access to the Postgres Enterprise Manager Server secure URL using the “https” protocol and internally Postgres Enterprise Manager Server connects to the database targets as the single management console for one or more local and/or remote databases.
SQL Profiler EnterpriseDB provides the SQL Profiler component in EDB Postgres Advanced Serverand in EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager (for PostgreSQL users) to help assist you in locating and optimizing poorly-running SQL code.
The SQL Profiler Plugin allows you to profile a server’s workload. You must install the plugin on each server on which you wish to use SQL Profiler (since it is a plugin to the database server, you must install a copy of the plugin for each Postgres instance you wish to profile on each host you wish to profile). For example, if you have a host running PostgreSQL 9.2 and PostgreSQL 9.5, you must install two versions of the plugin, one for each server.
SQL Profiler for Postgres Enterprise Manager™ is officially supported only on the EnterpriseDB distributions of PostgreSQL version 9.1 (and above) and Advanced Server version 9.1 (and above). The plugin is distributed via StackBuilder, or is available from the EnterpriseDB website at:
