Should I use pgMustard?

There are three main benefits:

  • Save time understanding query plans

  • Get specific guidance on how to improve query performance

  • Learn about Postgres performance features and query operations


How does it compare?

We really like explain.D.C and PEV. They’ve helped people diagnose & fix problematic queries for years. But we thought we could go further. With pgMustard, we’ve created a tool which:

  • Displays information more intuitively, for example a simple timing breakdown by operation, and high level summaries of cache performance

  • Handles large plans elegantly, for example allowing sub-trees to be collapsed (fast ones are collapsed by default)

  • Provides guidance and tips on which aspects of the plan are most important and what to do next


Why should I subscribe?

If several of the below apply to you...

  • Your application is data heavy

  • Performance is an important feature for your application

  • You'd like more of the team to be able to do database performance work

  • You have other valuable projects that the time saved could enable


Is it worth €50 per month?

Things to consider:

  • Are you more short of time or money? (Are you hiring?)

  • How much time would it save?

  • What could people be working on with that time?

  • Could it help with training or onboarding?

  • How much value could extra performance improvements add?

  • We are regularly releasing improvements
