Question

Is there a slow query log for a managed database?

I want to tune my application and for this I want to see the slow running queries. Is this available for a postgres managed database?

Just wanted to share that this is now possible with the managed MySQL database cluster, so it may be possible with postgres as well.

I used the HTTP API to enable the slow query log (docs), then I could access the slow query log via the slow_queries table in the mysql schema/database.

Just checking in on this one. No way to sort or filter the queries. It’s not very useful if you can’t differentiate queries < 100ms from slow queries.

Contacted support regarding this. Their answer:

Since the database is managed on our end it isn’t possible to access the cluster to enable slow_query_log directly.

The general_log and slow_query_log_file can be seen under the “Queries” sub-tab of your database cluster.

The long_query_time is set to 10.000000

Regarding changing long_query_time:

Currently, it is not possible to edit the the same. We are looking at this for the future but at this time it’s not possible.
