If you have ever used a database like Postgres, you know how important optimization is. Some minor changes in how the database is setup make all the difference between long waiting times and satisfied customers. And one crucial thing you need before doing the optimization is to monitor and understand how your database is being used.
Citus is an extension to Postgres that improves scalability and parallelization by distributing your Postgres database across nodes in a cluster. The Citus database extension is available as open source and as a managed service on the cloud, as Azure Cosmos DB for PostgreSQL. You can track your Citus nodes and the Postgres tables, but Citus 11.3 takes it one step further and introduces a new way to gather insight on your Citus database with tenant monitoring.
The new Citus 11.3 release, among many other features, introduces a new
citus_stat_tenants view to track your most active tenants, for those with multi-tenant SaaS applications.
