Schedule - Nordic PGDay 2019

Data corruption - where does it come from and what can you do about it?

Date: 2019-03-19
Time: 16:40–17:30
Room: Vesterhavet
Level: Intermediate

Let's discuss the various sources of data corruption in databases (and in PostgreSQL in general) - cosmic rays, storage, bugs in the OS, database or application. I'll share some general observations about those various sources, and also some recommendations how to detect those issues in PostgreSQL (data checksums, ...) and how to deal with them.
