PostgreSQL: Bloat

Distribution Official part of Checkmk
License GPLv2
Supported Agents Linux
This check allows tracking of how bloated the tables and indexes of a database are. It requires that the ANALYZE function is running regularly and that stats collection is turned on.

You can configure limits for the total amount of wasted bytes or the percentual bloat size. The limits can be configured for the table bloat as well as the index bloat.

This check relies on data reported by the agent-side plug-in mk_postgres
