Sneak Preview of pgio (The SLOB Method for PostgreSQL) Part II: Bulk Data Loading.

Bulk Data Loading With pgio Version 0.9 Beta

Now that pgio (the SLOB Method for PostgreSQL) is in Beta users’ hands I’m going to make a few quick blog entries with examples of pgio usage. The following are screen grabs taken while loading 1 terabyte into the pgio schemas. As the example shows, pgio (on a system with ample storage performance) can ready a 1 terabyte data set for testing in only 1014 seconds (roughly 3.5TB/h loading rate).

$ cat pgio.conf
UPDATE_PCT=0
RUN_TIME=120
NUM_SCHEMAS=4
NUM_THREADS=2
WORK_UNIT=255
UPDATE_WORK_UNIT=8
SCALE=1G

DBNAME=pg10
CONNECT_STRING=”pg10″

CREATE_BASE_TABLE=TRUE

$ echo ”
> UPDATE_PCT=0
> RUN_TIME=120
> NUM_SCHEMAS=64
> NUM_THREADS=16
> WORK_UNIT=255
> UPDATE_WORK_UNIT=8
> SCALE=16G
> DBNAME=pg10
> CONNECT_STRING=\”pg10\”
> CREATE_BASE_TABLE=TRUE ” > pgio.conf
$
$ sh ./setup.sh
