Thanks for sharing Lorraine! If anyone has any questions, let me know. For the avoidance of disappointment, we didn’t actually get to the three most common issues in this chat, but I did include them in my slides here: Timescale Community Day slides — pgMustard

This got me to subscribe to pgmustard, and I can say it does save a bit of time in identifying the source of the problem with a query. Enough time to make it worth the subscription over a year.


Glad to know it’s been insightful @BenSkelton ! :pray:
