With improved observability and using the right tools, you can get the best out of your existing setup and ensure that it can handle not only the average load profile but peak load. We'll see how tools like pg_stat_activity, pg_stat_statements, auto_explain, pgBadger, and pg_stat_monitor can deliver a complete picture to help measure, analyse and optimise your queries and database system.
