Database cleaning updating
To check when VACUUM last ran, just type: The last thing I’d like to point out is planner statistics.
VACUUM allows you to update them so that the planner can do its job better. You can find more detailed information about VACUUM in Postgre SQL documentation.
They do these operations within different transactions so they should be able to do their jobs without worrying about someone else doing something with the same data. So let’s look at this problem from a DBMS’s perspective. Similarly, if a transaction wants to update the row, it must wait for all transactions reading it to release the lock.
A consequence of such behavior is poor performance – all read queries must wait for an update to finish and the other way round – an update query must wait for all read operations to end. It uses the MVCC (Multi-Version Concurrency Control) approach.
Generally, when multiple users (or more concretely – database transactions) read or modify the data stored in a database at the same time, they may conflict with each other.
One user wants to read the row while another one may want to modify it. In this case, if one transaction wants to read the row, it must wait until the other transaction finishes updating it.

CASE provides numerous resources on information systems management, including data management and solution-oriented articles such as "Office Space: Sweeping the Data Clouds Away" (if you are inheriting an ineffective system).
This is useful to create a simple public listing of the datasets, with no user information.
It’s important to note that a standard VACUUM operation is non-blocking, so it may be invoked on production database without requiring maintenance downtime.
It does require additional resources (it performs many I/O operations) so it may temporarily affect the overall performance, but it doesn’t require exclusive locks and thus doesn’t block active transactions. Instead of reusing old pages, it creates table structures from scratch.Postgre SQL maintains this guarantee even when providing the strictest level of transaction isolation through the use of an innovative Serializable Snapshot Isolation (SSI) level. It simply inserts a new row for each row to be updated and marks the old row as out-of-date.
