PostgreSQL Docs for Paper (benchmark and contrib)

Hello,

I'm writing a paper on PostgreSQL.

I'm looking for:

1) benchmark comparisons of PostgreSQL against other databases

2) Detailed descriptions (or project web sites) of all the 'contrib'
projects (like dbsize, tsearch, xml, etc).

Could someone point me in the right direction?

Thank you!

You might want to start here: http://osdb.sourceforge.net/
Or if you go here, http://pgfoundry.org/ on the right-hand side is a
project to start doing the TPC-W tests.

Most (all?) commercial databases won't let you publish benchmarks, and
the only freely available results tend to be on expensive hardware
heavily tuned.
2) Detailed descriptions (or project web sites) of all the 'contrib'
projects (like dbsize, tsearch, xml, etc).


New project home for PG-related stuff is at pgfoundry (above) - you
might also be interested in:

PgAdmin
http://www.pgadmin.org/
PgPool
ftp://ftp.sra.co.jp/pub/cmd/postgres...ool-2.0.tar.gz
Slony
http://www.slony.org

All the contrib stuff have README files in the source distribution. That
should be enought to get you started :-)
