PostgreSQL Workload Analyzer
Stats Collector / Real-time Graphs / Performance Charts

PoWA is available under the PostgreSQL license. You are allowed to download, use and modify this software as long as you maintain our copyright notice.

The main code is a PostgreSQL extension written in C and SQL. The user interface is based on Python, Tornado and SQLAlchemy. Obviously the stats are stored in a PostgreSQL database :-)


The PoWA documentation is available online.
