Question on pgwatch

Bikram MAJUMDAR

Hi,

 

I am trying to configure pgwatch to monitor our postgres database.  I am wondering if we can install/configure and run it from a windows server to monitor our postgres database which runs on a linux server.

 

Does pgwatch only runs on linux platforms?

And can we install and run it on the same linux server where the postgres database is running?

 

Thanks and regards,

According to the documentation it runs on docker by default, so it
depends on how simple it is to get running docker on windows
<https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-windows/>.
Another approach could be to run a linux virtual machine on the
windows box, since the pgwatch documentation explains how to install
it on a non-docker container.

Hope this helps.

Hi Luca,

Thanks a lot for your response.

So are you saying we can run pgwatch from windows also ?
From reading so far on pgwatch, I thought it can be installed and run only on linux platforms - but, I may be wrong.
Would you have a document on downloading and installing the windows version?

Another question:
Can we install and run it from the postgres database server itself?

Thanks and regards,

No, I wrote that pgwatch runs in a docker container, so as far as you
can run docker on windows you should be able to run pgwatch within
docker on top of windows.

pgwatch runs on a linux stack, so if you need to run it on windows you
have either to runa  virtual machine (running linux) or get a docker
linux container available and running.

> Can we install and run it from the postgres database server itself?

I think it is possible, but probably not the best solution.

Thanks a lot Luca.

Last question:
If we want to run on windows  then, is there any guide/documentation available that you can refer me.

Thanks

In my first email I sent you the link to get started with docker on
windows <https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-windows/>, then I believe
you have to do your own homework.
