README

pgcozy

pgcozy is an extension who adds the capability to keep snapshots of the buffer cache and later can prewarm according to these snapshots. Snapshots are saved in jsonb format under a schema and a table and they can be reviewed , backed up or transferred Also see my blog for some examples and tips:

INSTALLATION

Requirements: pg_preworm and pg_buffercache extensions

In directory where you downloaded pgcozy to run

make
make install

Log into PostgreSQL and run the following commands.

CREATE EXTENSION pgcozy;
select pgcozy_init();

This will create a schema called pgcozy , a table called snapshots and a type called cozy_type. This extension uses pg_prewarm and pg_buffercache to read the contents of shared buffers and store them for later prewarm.
