Previously, we have to use upsert or merge statement to do this kind of operation. The patch has been committed , and will appear in PostgreSQL 9. A day before yesterday, I got an email like, does it require to add a unique index on those columns which we require to be in ON CONFLICT clause? On 05/09/2018 07:04 PM, tango ward wrote: Sorry, I modified the school_system_id in CONFLICT CLAUSE. Although what I've done is a temporary kludge, the basic idea offorcing a particular type of relation scan has a precedent: UPDATEWHERE CURRENT OF artificially forces a TID scan, because only a TIDscan will work correctly there. Still,interactions with SSI, and preserving the guarantees of SSI shouldprobably be closely considered by a subject matter expert. On Thu, May 10, 2018 at 12:07 PM, Adrian Klaver. How this new approach works (Executor and Optimizer stuff)============================================. In PostgreSQL 9.5, the ON CONFLICT clause was added to INSERT. The effect is similar to MySQL: INSERT INTO customers (id, first_name, last_name, email) VALUES (30797, 'hooopo1', 'wang', '[email protected]') ON CONFLICT(id) DO UPDATE SET first_name = EXCLUDED.first_name, last_name = EXCLUDED.last_name; Batch Upsert. However, it ismore or less independently planned, and entirely driven by the INSERTModifyTable. On Thu, May 10, 2018 at 5:57 PM, Alban Hertroys. It is a very importantpoint in my opinion. there is no ExecModifyTable() call in respect of this newauxiliary ModifyTable plan). 2. Is anyone in this camp? You acceptthat value locks must be released and released easily in the event ofa conflict, but like Heikki you just don't like what I've done to getthere. the plpsqlthing that the docs suggest). With "equivalent" upserts, it's about ~66,000 TPS. It's probably a good idea to begin using my B-Tree verification tool[7] for testing...on the other hand, it doesn't know anything aboutMVCC, and will only detect the violation of invariants that arelocalized to the B-Tree code, at least at the moment. Plus, there's the additional planning and parsingoverhead. We’ve been talking about offline-first with Hasura and RxDB (essentially Postgres and PouchDB underneath).. This modified text is an extract of the original Stack Overflow Documentation created by following contributors and released under CC BY-SA 3.0 Just forexample, the unprincipled deadlocks test case that illustrated theproblem with early "promise tuple" style approaches to value locking[6] involved only a single unique index. Once data has been added to a database, the SQL UPDATE command can be used to modify the column values in the rows of a table. It is a discussion and guide to implementing CouchDB style conflict resolution with Postgres (central backend database) and PouchDB (frontend app user database).. We all seem to be in agreementthat we should update at READ COMMITTED if *no* version of the tupleis visible. The performance of the patch seems quite good, and is something thatthese stress-testing bash scripts also test. This tutorial will explain how to use Postgres to update from another table. INSERT ... ON CONFLICT DO UPDATE with _any_ constraint ‹ Previous Topic Next Topic › Classic List: Threaded ♦ ♦ 26 messages 1 2. In relational databases, the term upsert is referred to as merge. Old versions ofthis patch used to sit on the B-Tree buffer pin to prevent concurrentdeletion only as long as value locks were held, but maybe it isn'tgood enough to sit on the pin until before we lock/update, as valuelocks are released: dropping the pin implies that the heap tuple canphysically go away, and in general the same TID may then containanything. This is onthe same dedicated 8 core server, with plenty of concurrency. I can sustain ~98,000TPS with plain updates, or ~70,000 TPS with "equivalent" upserts.B-Tree index page heavyweight lock contention probably explains someof the difference between "UPSERT inserts" and "UPSERT updates". INSERT has been augmented with a newclause, but that clause does not unreasonably fail to play nice withany other aspect of insertion. The new (post-update) values of the table's columns are used. In this statement, the target can be one of the following: (column_name) – a column name. This allows INSERT statements toperform UPSERT operations (if you want a more formal definition ofUPSERT, I refer you to my pgCon talk's slides [1], or the thread inwhich I delineated the differences between SQL MERGE and UPSERT [2]).The patch builds on previous work in this area, and incorporatesfeedback from Kevin and Andres. Pinning the heavyweight lock page's buffer iscertainly justified by the need for non-speculative inserters to see aflag that obligates them to acquire the heavyweight page lockthemselves (see comments in patch for more), but this other reason iskind of dubious. UPSERT in PostgreSQL 9. I think that without initially realizing it, I copied the SQLitesyntax [3]. In previous revisions, when we went to lock + update a tuple, no"value locks" were held, and neither were any B-Tree page buffer pins,because they were both released at the same time (recall that I callmy heavyweight lock on B-Tree leaf pages a value lock). Once you buy into the idea that we must avoidholding on to "value locks" of whatever form - as Heikki evidently did- then exactly what form they take is ultimately only a detail.Granted, it's a very important detail, but a detail nonetheless. It feels natural and appropriate to me that if the special UPDATE qualisn't satisfied, we still lock the tuple. Second, specify columns and their new values after SET keyword. INSERT ON Introduction to the PostgreSQL upsert. They allow you to do something like this: INSERT INTO upsert (key, val) VALUES (1 'val') ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATEval = VALUES(val); The implication is that the updated value comes from the INSERT'sVALUES() list, but emulating that seems like a bad idea. Here is a table of key, value pairs: demo=# SELECT * FROM kv; key | value -----+----- host | port | 5432 (2 rows) A common use case is to insert a row only if it does not exist – and if it does, do not overwrite. Also, some of the restrictions that I already mentioned- on updatable views, inheritance, and foreign tables - are probablyunnecessary. Thanks, J-- Adrian Klaver [hidden email] Alban Hertroys-4. When we left off, Heikki continued to favor an approach that involvedspeculatively inserting heap tuples, and then deleting them in theevent of a conflict. The way MySQL handles the issue seemsquestionable. This option basically helps to perform DML actions like, Insert IF not Exists, Update IF Exists. I thought, only the columns that I declared inside the ON CONFLICT()  parenthesis can be called in SET. PostgreSQL › PostgreSQL - hackers. Why bother introducinga complicated distinction, if it's a distinction without a difference?I'd rather have a behavior that is consistent, easy to reason about,and easy to explain. Okay, I think I manage to solve it by adding balance = excluded.balance inside the parenthesis of ON CONFLICT clause. Upserts are comparedagainst "equivalent" inserts when we know we'll never update, andagainst "equivalent" updates when we know we'll never insert. But the "INSERT part" of thequery has no additional limitations, so you may for example putsubqueries within a VALUES() clause, or INSERT...SELECT...ON CONFLICTUPDATE... just as you'd expect. [1],("Goals for UPSERT in Postgres")[2][3][4][5][6][7] Peter Geoghegan, Copyright © 1996-2020 The PostgreSQL Global Development Group,,,,,,,, 0001-Make-UPDATE-privileges-distinct-from-INSERT-privileg.patch, 0004-Internal-documentation-for-INSERT-.-ON-CONFLICT-UPDA.patch, 0003-Tests-for-INSERT-.-ON-CONFLICT-UPDATE-IGNORE.patch, 0002-Support-INSERT-.-ON-CONFLICT-UPDATE-IGNORE.patch, Re: INSERT ... ON CONFLICT {UPDATE | IGNORE}, Re: Specifying the unit in storage parameter, Pg Hackers , Craig Ringer . Anyway, the greater point here is that fundamentally, AFAICT Heikkiand I were in agreement. The second scenario is onein which the same "predicate" is also not satisfied according to ourMVCC snapshot, but in a slightly different way. The REPLACE statement (a MySQL extension) or UPSERT sequence attempts an UPDATE, or on failure, INSERT.This is similar to UPDATE, then for unmatched rows, INSERT.Whether concurrent access allows modifications which could cause row loss is implementation independent. You may write the DML statementlike this: INSERT INTO upsert(key, val) VALUES(1, 'insert') ON CONFLICT WITHINupsert_pkey UPDATE SET val = 'update'; I think that there is a good chance that at least some people willwant to make this mandatory. transformStmt()/transformUpdateStmt() is called, and isinsulated from having to care about the feature as a special case).There are some restrictions on what this auxiliary update may do, butFWIW there are considerably fewer than those that the equivalent MySQLor SQLite feature imposes on their users. I think it makes sense to deal with it a bit later. FWIW, somewhat extensive stress-testing has revealed no bugs that youmight associate with these problems, with and without extended bufferpinning, and with artificial random sleeps added at key points in aneffort to make any race condition bugs manifest themselves. Basically, I want to be comfortableabout my rationale for it being okay that a "non-MVCC" "index scan"doesn't hold a pin, but right now I'm not. You don't need a uniqueindex at all, and as I showed in my pgCon talk, there are raceconditions even for a trivial UPSERT operations in all major SQL MERGEimplementations. WHERE condition – update some fields in the table. Itcan be discussed entirely independently of all of this new stuff, andthank goodness for that. I thought that I went too long without posting something about all ofthis to the list to get feedback, and so I decided to post this WIPpatch set. Search everywhere only in this topic Advanced Search . When this runs, if there is a conflict found the record will not be entered into the DB. Search everywhere only in this topic Advanced Search. ON CONFLICT DO UPDATE updates the existing row that conflicts with the row proposed for insertion as its alternative action. Rather, its parent manages theprocess as the need arises. Starting with version 9.5, PostgreSQL allows “upserts” (update or insert) of rows into a table via the ON CONFLICT clause of the INSERT statement. However, Heikki did understand the concerns that informed bydesign. Compatibility INSERT conforms to the SQL standard, except that the RETURNING clause is a PostgreSQL extension, as is the ability to use WITH with INSERT, and the ability to specify an alternative action with ON CONFLICT. We may have to interlock against vacuum by sitting on theB-Tree buffer pin (but not the value lock) throughout locking +update. As in previous incarnations, we lock each tuple (although, of course,only with the UPDATE variant). On Thu, May 10, 2018 at 1:13 PM, tango ward. This can be revisited.). We may or may not also actually proceedwith the update, depending on whether or not the user-specifiedspecial update predicate (if any) is satisfied. Perhaps we can come up with amore tasteful syntax that covers all interesting cases (consider theissues with partial unique indexes and before triggers for example,where a conclusion reached about which index to use during parseanalysis may subsequently be invalidated by user-defined code, orambiguous specifications in the face of overlapping attributes betweentwo unique composite indexes, etc). INSERT INTO upsert (key, val) VALUES (1, 'insert') ON CONFLICT UPDATE SET val = 'update'; Essentially, the implementation has all stages of query processing track some auxiliary UPDATE state. \"UPSERT\" is a DBMS feature that allows a DML statement's author to atomically either insert a row, or on the basis of the row already existing, UPDATE that existing row instead, while safely giving little to no further thought to concurrency. I'm not sure whether or not we shouldassume equivalent transformations during any UPDATE before triggers. There is a newExecUpdate() call site within ExecLockUpdateTuple(). There was some useful discussion on this questionbetween myself and Heikki back around December/January. I havemade a concerted effort to break the patch in that way, and I'm nowrunning out of ideas. Reply | Threaded. PostgreSQL › PostgreSQL - general. PostgreSQL also has INSERT… ON CONFLICT UPDATE grammar from 9.5. Yes, that's what I figured out eventually. As you'd expect, I've included both isolation tests and regressiontests covering a reasonable variety of cases. Afterall, it wasn't as if we could abort a subxact to release locks, whichis what the "UPSERT looping subxact" pattern does. Prerequisites On an 8 core test server, I can sustain ~90,000 ordinary inserttransactions per second on an unlogged table defined as follows: create unlogged table foo( merge serial primary key, b int4, c text); In all cases pgbench uses 8 clients (1 per CPU core). It's far from obvious tome what side of this question Andres is on at this stage, for example.Robert might have something to say here too. I couldn't come up with a convenientway to artificially inject disable_cost into alternative scan types,in the less invasive style of isCurrentOf, because there is noconvenient qual to target within cost_qual_eval(). Update rules get applied by the rule system when the result relation and the For ON INSERT rules, the original query (if not suppressed by INSTEAD) is done SELECT * FROM shoelace WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT shoename FROM For ON CONFLICT DO NOTHING, it is optional to specify a conflict_target; when omitted, conflicts with all usable constraints (and unique indexes) are handled. INSERT INTO upsert(key, val) VALUES(1, 'insert') ON CONFLICT UPDATESET val = 'update'; Essentially, the implementation has all stages of query processingtrack some auxiliary UPDATE state. ON CONSTRAINT constraint_name – where the constraint name could be the name of … It is likely worthwhile to teach theoptimizer that we really don't care about how the one and only baserel within the UPDATE auxiliary subquery (the target table) isscanned, if only to save a few cycles. This lets application developers write less code and do more work in SQL. Both DO NOTHING and DO UPDATE have their uses depending on the way the data you're adding relates to the existing content. A candidate row will only be inserted if that row does not violate any unique constraints. I think it's fairto say that that design became more complicated than initiallyanticipated [4] [5]. The syntax for … OTOH, I'm not sure that there existsanything that looks like a precedent for relying on blocking vacuum inthis manner, and it might turn out to be limiting to rely on this.And, I hasten to add, my fix (sitting on a B-Tree pin throughout rowlocking) is in another way perhaps not paranoid enough: Who is to saythat our conflicting value is on the same B-Tree leaf page as ourvalue lock? The ON CONFLICT DO UPDATE clause you created on the table. This post continues to dive deeper into the topic. After all, in order to makea conclusive determination about the qual not being satisfied, we needto lock the tuple. Interlocking with VACUUM, race conditions===============================. I have also published an article on it. Examples include MySQL's INSERT...ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE, or VoltDB's UPSERT statement.The absence of this fea… And this process is known as upsert, which is the combination of insert or update command. ExecModifyTable() is never called with this specialauxiliary plan state passed directly. Of course, at higher isolation levels serialization errors are thrownwhen something inconsistent with the higher level's guarantees wouldotherwise need to occur (even for the IGNORE variant). ON CONFLICT UPDATE with view with subset of columns. Upsert (INSERT ON CONFLICT DO) is a new function of PostgreSQL 9.5. Having taken into account the experience of myself and Heikki, andall that is implied by taking that approach ***while avoidingunprincipled deadlocks***, you continue to believe that an approachbased on speculative heap insertion, or some alternative scheme isbetter than what I have done to the nbtree code here, or you otherwisedislike something about the proposed value locking scheme. Attached WIP patch extends the INSERT statement, adding a new ONCONFLICT {UPDATE | IGNORE} clause. You don't accept that value locks must be easily released in theevent of a conflict. When a constraint error occurs during data insertion, data insertion is rolled back or changed to update. Yesterday, I understood that I had broken a sequence of an auto-increment column in my PostgreSQL database. I was conflicted on whetheror not I should include the "unpin later" logic at all; for now I'veleft it in, if only as a placeholder. I've tentatively added code to keepa buffer pin for longer, but that's probably not good enough if weassume that it's necessary at all. Needless to say, if there is arace condition you can take it that it's very difficult to isolate. If anyone finds my (virtually unchanged) page heavyweight lock basedvalue locking approach objectionable, I ask that the criticism beframed in a way that makes a sharp distinction between each of thefollowing: 1. In addition, stresstesting is an important part of my testing strategy. After a long time of waiting, PostgreSQL 9.5 introduced INSERT ON CONFLICT [DO UPDATE] [DO NOTHING]. This happens to insulate ExecUpdate() from havingto care about "invisible tuples", which are now possible (although westill throw an error, just with a useful error message that phrasesthe problem in reference to this new feature). PostgreSQL's INSERT...ON CONFLICT construct allows you to choose between two options when a proposed record conflicts with an existing record. To date, on-list discussion around UPSERT has almost exclusivelyconcerned what I've called "value locking"; the idea of locking valuesin unique indexes in the abstract (to establish the right to insertahead of time). In the PostgreSQL, the below query is used to upsert the table using the INSERT ON CONFLICT command: The per-tuple expression context of the auxiliary query/plan is usedwith EvalPlanQual() from within ExecLockUpdateTuple() (the new routinetasked with locking and updating on conflict). PostgreSQL added the ON CONFLICT target action clause to the INSERT statement to support the upsert feature. Caused by: org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: ERROR: duplicate key value violates unique constraint […] The PostgresSQL INSERT doc u mentation specifies an ON CONFLICT … Since we can (I believe) talk about the value locking aspect and therest of the patch independently, we should do so...unless you're incamp 1, in which case I guess that we'll have to thrash it out. We still dothat (unprincipled deadlocks are our only alternative), but now holdon to the pin for longer, until after tuple locking. The Right Thing is far fromobvious, and there is very little to garner from other systems, sinceSQL MERGE promises essentially nothing about concurrency, both asspecified by the standard and in practice.
