Installation & Initialization of PostGIS

Distribution: CentOS 6.x / RHEL 6.x

If you already have a current version of PostgreSQL server installed on your server from the PGDG repository you should skip these first two steps.

PostgreSQL Table Spaces

A powerful feature of PostgreSQL is the ability to create table spaces and to move database objects between them. Each table space represents a physical storage location; so using table spaces you can tier data onto different grades of storage [SSD vs. fast disk vs. slow disk] as well as move data from storage being retired [like an iSCSI SAN] to a new storage [a Fiber-Channel SAN!].

Deindexing A Table (PostgreSQL)

One of the key steps for performing tuning a database is to test indexing strategies and their effect on performance. It is a series of:

  1. Drop the indexes
  2. Create new indexes
  3. Update statistics
  4. EXPLAIN the important queries.

Rinse and repeat.
