Scaling a data-tier requires multiple concurrent database connections that are all vying for read and write access of the same data. In order to cater to this complex demand, PostgreSQL implements a concurrency method known as Multi Version Concurrency Control, or MVCC. By understating MVCC, you will be able to take advantage of advanced features such as transactional memory, atomic data isolation, and point in time consistent views.

This presentation will show you how MVCC works in both a theoretical and practical level. Furthermore, you will learn how to optimize common tasks such as database writes, vacuuming, and index maintenance. Afterwards, you will have a fundamental understanding on how PostgreSQL operates on your data.

Key points discussed:
* MVCC; what is really happening when I write data.
* Vacuuming; why it is needed and what is really going on.
* Transactions; much more then just an undo button.
* Isolation levels; seeing only the data you want to see.
* Locking; ensure writes happen in the order you choose.
* Cursors; how to stream chronologically correct data more efficiency.

SQL examples given during the presentation are available here: http://www.reactive.io/academy/presentations/postgresql/mvcc/mvcc-examples.zip

  • 1. POSTGRES MVCC A DEVELOPER CENTRIC VIEW OF MULTI VERSION CONCURRENCY CONTROL By: Robert Sosinski
  • 2. Robert Sosinski Founder & Engineering Fellow
  • 3. AGENDA MVCC: what it is and it matters Transactions: more then just an undo button Isolation Levels: seeing what you need to see Locking: control when your data is written Cursors: stream chronologically correct data Summary: bringing it all together Questions: ready, fire, aim
  • 4. WHAT IS MVCC? Multi Version Concurrency Control
  • 5. WHAT IS MVCC? Multi Version Concurrency Control
  • 6. WHAT IS MVCC USING BOXES AND ARROWS Declarative Control Isolated Multi Version Data Parallel Multi-User Concurrency of
  • 7. WHAT DOES MVCC DO? 1: Multiple users are able access the same data at the same time. 2: Every user sees their own isolated snapshot of the database. 3: Changes made by one user, will not be seen by any other user until their transaction is committed.
  • 8. THE MVCC SALES PITCH MULTI VERSION Atomic Updates Consistent Data Isolated Reads CONCURRENCY Higher efficiency Simpler operations Engineering agility
  • 9. A MVCC WORLD
  • 10. A WORLD WITHOUT MVCC Simple HR database for a fictitious company with high employee churn without MVCC.

  • 13. UPDATE IN PLACE 3: UPDATE

  • 21. MVCC 1: TABLE xmaxxmin
  • 22. MVCC 2: UPDATE xmaxxmin
  • 23. MVCC 3: UPDATE IN PROGRESS xmaxxmin
  • 24. MVCC 4: UPDATE IN PROGRESS xmaxxmin
  • 25. MVCC 5: UPDATED xmaxxmin
  • 26. MVCC 6: INSERT xmaxxmin
  • 27. MVCC 7: INSERTED xmaxxmin
  • 28. MVCC 8: DELETE xmaxxmin
  • 29. MVCC 9: DELETED xmaxxmin
  • 30. LETS CONCURRENTLY WRITE SOME DATA Open Postgres Terminal
  • 31. VACUUM 1: UIP TABLE
  • 32. VACUUM 2: MVCC TABLE xmaxxmin
  • 33. VACUUM 3: WASTE xmaxxmin
  • 34. VACUUM 4: FIRST VACUUM xmaxxmin
  • 35. VACUUM 5: FIRST VACUUM xmaxxmin
  • 36. VACUUM 6: FIRST VACUUM xmaxxmin
  • 37. VACUUM 7: VACUUM FINISHED xmaxxmin
  • 38. VACUUM 8: SECOND VACUUM xmaxxmin
  • 39. VACUUM 9: SECOND VACUUM xmaxxmin
  • 40. VACUUM 10: SECOND VACUUM xmaxxmin
  • 41. VACUUM 11: VACUUM FINISHED xmaxxmin
  • 42. ISOLATION LEVELS Level Dirty Read Nonrepeatable Read Phantom Read Serialization Anomaly Read Commited Default ✔ Repeatable Read ✔ ✔ ✔ Serializable ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔ Not PossibleReferenced from: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.3/static/transaction-iso.html
  • 43. LETS ISOLATE SOME TRANSACTIONS Open Postgres Terminal
  • 44. EXPLICIT LOCKING TABLE LEVEL Very broad 8 types Can affect querying ROW LEVEL Very granular 2 types Will not affect querying
  • 45. ROW LEVEL LOCKING Name Lock Type Blocks Update Blocks Select For Update For Share Row Share ✔ select * from people where id = 1 for share; For Update Row Exclusive ✔ ✔ select * from people where id = 1 for update;
  • 46. LETS LOCK SOME ROWS Open Postgres Terminal
  • 47. CURSORS Streaming: break large datasets in smaller segments Efficient: reduce a queries memory consumption Isolated: return chronologically correct data Traversable: can scan forward, backwards and more Flexible: PL/pgSQL functions can return/accept cursors
  • 48. LETS USE A CURSOR Open Postgres Terminal
  • 49. SUMMARY Powerful: interact with your data on your terms Declarative: easy to use, less chance of mistakes Efficient: use less resources to work with more data Scalable: handle more processes with larger volume Flexible: do what you need do when you need it
  • 50. CONDENSED SUMMARY Control of your Concurrent Multi Versioned Data
  • 51. CONDENSED SUMMARY Control of your Concurrent Multi Versioned Business
  • 52. THANKS Open For Questions
