Prerequisites

In order to monitor a PostgreSQL server, CloudTest must be able to establish a TCP/IP connection to the server. If you are not sure how to enable this, consult the "Client Authentication" section of the PostgreSQL documentation.

If a firewall prevents TCP/IP access, see the topic Monitoring a Server Behind a Firewall.

In addition, in versions 8.2 and earlier, the PostgreSQL stats_row_level parameter must be set to "true". In versions 8.3 and later, this parameter is called track_counts . If you are not sure how to enable this, consult the "Statistics Collection Configuration" section of the PostgreSQL documentation.
