::ksdwrt in Oracle and workarround in PostgreSQL::

dbms_system.ksdwrt
================
In Oracle we do have ksdwrt for writing the customized alters into alert_log file as well trace files.
These customized log information is very usefull to DBA while monitoringthe servers.

Step 1:-
======
exec dbms_system.ksdwrt(2,CURRENT_DATE||'::NOTIFY:: '||' ****** Disk Space IS Very Less ... 90% Full
******');

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

Step 2:-
=======
SQL> select name,value from v$parameter where name='background_dump_dest';

NAME
--------------------------------------------------
VALUE
--------------------------------------------------
background_dump_dest
D:\ORACLE\PRODUCT\10.2.0\ADMIN\DINESH\BDUMP


Step 3:-

11-NOV-11::NOTIFY:: ****** Disk Space IS Very Less ... 90% Full ******



In PostgreSQL, we don't have that feature. So,please find the below work arround for this in PostgreSQL.
=======================================================================

Step 1:-
=====
CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION PG_LOG_WRITE(MESSAGE TEXT) RETURNS BIGINT
AS
$$
select pg_file_write('pg_log/'||filename,$1,true)
from
(
SELECT
pg_ls_dir AS filename,
pg_size_pretty((pg_stat_file('pg_log/' || pg_ls_dir)).size),
(pg_stat_file('pg_log/' || pg_ls_dir)).modification
FROM
pg_ls_dir('pg_log')
WHERE
(pg_stat_file('pg_log/' || pg_ls_dir)).isdir = false
ORDER BY
modification DESC LIMIT 1
) as sub;
$$
LANGUAGE SQL;

Step 2:-
=====
postgres=# SELECT pg_log_write((SELECT NOW())||' ::NOTIFY:: '||E' ****** Disk Space IS Very Less ... 90% Full ****** \n');

Step 3:-
======
$ tail -100f postgresql-2011-10-20_043319.log

2011-10-20 05:25:04.214368+05:30 ::NOTIFY:: ****** Disk Space IS Very Less ... 90% Full ******

pgBucket - A new concurrent job scheduler

Hi All,

I'm so excited to announce about my first contribution tool for postgresql. I have been working with PostgreSQL from 2011 and I'm really impressed with such a nice database.

I started few projects in last 2 years like pgHawk[A beautiful report generator for Openwatch] , pgOwlt [CUI monitoring. It is still under development, incase you are interested to see what it is, attaching the image here for you ],


pgBucket [Which I'm gonna talk about] and learned a lot and lot about PostgreSQL/Linux internals.

Using pgBucket we can schedule jobs easily and we can also maintain them using it's CLI options. We can update/insert/delete jobs at online. And here is its architecture which gives you a basic idea about how it works.


Yeah, I know there are other good job schedulers available for PostgreSQL. I haven't tested them and not comparing them with this, as I implemented it in my way.
Features are: OS/DB jobsCron style sytaxOnline job modificationsRequired cli options
