comment Monitoring bespoke software with Zenoss
@Andy S: Good question. I've never tried this on Windows, but it should work. I expanded my answer to try and help.

comment SCOM 2007 versus Zenoss (or other open source)
@SteveBurkett: Just for the record: RRDTool (which Zenoss uses) aggregates old data in a similar way, to allow you to retain old data without bloating the datavbase.

comment pg_restore taking much longer than pg_dump
@Stefano: Actually, production issues are not a problem, as I need the dump/restore for automated Q/A tests. However, the Q/A environment should be easy to set up (because ideally each dev should have his/her own, in addition to several company-wide environments), and requiring a dedicated DBMS installation with all kinds of backup scripts is something I would like to avoid.

comment pg_restore taking much longer than pg_dump
@Stefano: Interesting option; I didn't know this was possible. I don't think this is feasible for us, though, as has quite a few constraints (need to shutdown DBMS, need to dump/restore all databases). I fear this is only feasible if you have a PostgreSQL installation all to yourself, which I cannot assume.

Could you post the output of free, and of ps aux? Maybe we spot something.

Interesting, I had never heard of this tool. Looks neat.

Well, I've written a plugin for NetSNMP myself ( net-snmp.org ) , which was basically just a shell script that NetSNMP runs on demand. I've never used NetSNMP on Windows, but they do have a Windows version. Just try it.

comment pg_restore taking much longer than pg_dump
@Frank: Thanks. Didn't know about pg_dump's implementation. In our case, speeding up the restore would be helpful, because it needs to run repeatedly as part of automated tests, so bringing it down from 1 minute to say 10s would help. But apparently that's not feasible. I'll have to find a different solution...
