The pg_catalog provides in-depth details of how your datamodel is being used. Follow along as we cruise the catalog to learn which indexes are never used, which indexes are missing and where we have over-normalized. Knowing how to analyze your database workload will allow you to make critical performance adjustments, inform your postgresql.conf and build an intelligent vacuum strategy. Catalog cruising is easy once you know what you're looking for, come along for a nice afternoon cruise!
