pq-timeouts

A Postgres driver for Go that wraps lib/pq to provide read and write timeouts.

Build Status Coverage Status

Why?

lib/pq is an excellent Postgres driver written in pure Go, but it only offers support for the default Postgres timeouts of connect_timeout and statement_timeout. These work well, but in a high availability situation, they might not be enough. statement_timeout only works if the connection to Postgres is alive and well. connect_timeout only provides a timeout during initial connection. Once the connection is in the pool, connect_timeout doesn't apply. If the database goes down, or the network dies, the open connections will hang. Without a read or write timeout on the connection, there is no way to recover quickly. pq-timeouts provides a way to add a timeout to every write and read to and from the database.

Install

go get github.com/Kount/pq-timeouts

Using pq-timeouts

pq-timeouts adds two new connection string parameters: read_timeout and write_timeout. Otherwise, usage is nearly the same as lib/pq:

import (
  "database/sql"

  _ "github.com/Kount/pq-timeouts"
}

func main() {
  // Note: read_timeout and write_timeout are specified in milliseconds.
  db, err := sql.Open(
    "pq-timeouts",
    "user=pqtest dbname=pqtest read_timeout=500 write_timeout=1000 sslmode=verify-full"
  )
  if err != nil {
    log.Fatal(err)
  }

  age := 21
  rows, err := db.Query("SELECT name FROM users WHERE age =$1", age)
  ...
}

Connections using a URL work as well:

  db,err := sql.Open("pq-timeouts", "postgres://pqtest:password@localhost/pqtest?read_timeout=500&write_timeout=1000")

read_timeout and write_timeout are specified in milliseconds. If read_timeout or write_timeout are not specified or set to 0, no timeout is set and the driver behaves as standard lib/pq. For other connection options, check out the documentation for lib/pq: https://godoc.org/github.com/lib/pq

Overview

Package pqtimeouts is a Postgres driver for Go that wraps lib/pq to provide read and write timeouts.

pq-timeouts adds two new connection string parameters: read_timeout and write_timeout. Otherwise, usage is the nearly the same as lib/pq through the database/sql package:

import (
	"database/sql"

	_ "github.com/lib/pq"
)

func main() {
	db, err := sql.Open("pq-timeouts", "user=pqtest dbname=pqtest read_timeout=500 write_timeout=1000")
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}

	age := 21
	rows, err := db.Query("SELECT name FROM users WHERE age = $1", age)
}

Connections using a URL work as well:

db,err := sql.Open("pq-timeouts", "postgres://pqtest:password@localhost/pqtest?read_timeout=500&write_timeout=1000")

read_timeout and write_timeout are specified in milliseconds. If read_timeout or write_timeout are not specified or set to 0, no timeout is set and the driver behaves as standard lib/pq. For other connection options, check out the documentation for lib/pq: https://godoc.org/github.com/lib/pq
