Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL-Compatible Edition adds support for the pg_proctab extension. pg_proctab is a collection of stored functions that can access the operating systems process table so that system statistics can be queried through the database. pg_proctab functions make it easier to collect data on your PostgreSQL database including up-to-date information on processor and I/O statistics on SQL queries which makes troubleshooting easier.

Please review the Aurora documentation to learn more. You can view a list of all PostgreSQL extensions supported on RDS on the Amazon Web Services User Guide.

Amazon Aurora combines the performance and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. To get started with Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL, take a look at our getting started page.
