2 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 2 Introduction What I want to tell you about today: How PostgreSQL handles concurrent operations Snapshots Conflict resolution rules How to write application queries to get the right results without sacrificing performance Read-only transactions are pretty simple For read-write transactions, there are several approaches depending on complexity of the transaction
3 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 3 What problem are we talking about? We want to run transactions concurrently with: correct behavior good performance Correct behavior basically means serializability. The transactions should appear to execute one at a time, in isolation. When two transactions physically overlap in time, we don t care which one appears to go first; but we don t want to see any behavior that reveals that they were concurrent. Any such behavior would look like a bug to one or both users. The easy way to do this would be to force transactions to actually go one at a time... but for high-volume sites that kills performance. Ideally, no transaction should block another from proceeding.
4 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 4 Snapshots isolate transactions Here s the key idea in PostgreSQL s implementation of concurrency: Snapshots isolate transactions from the effects of concurrently running transactions. Each transaction runs against a notional snapshot of the committed state of the database at a particular instant. It cannot see the effects of uncommitted transactions (except itself), nor of transactions that commit after the snapshot time. Every update of a database row generates a new version of the row. Snapshot information determines which version of a given row is visible to a given transaction. Old versions of rows can be reclaimed (by VACUUM) once they are no longer visible to any running transaction.
5 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 5 PostgreSQL has two isolation levels You can run PostgreSQL transactions in either of two modes: SERIALIZABLE: a snapshot is taken at start of a transaction (actually, at start of first query within transaction). A reader s view of the database is thus fixed throughout a transaction. READ COMMITTED: a new snapshot is taken at start of each interactive query. So, view of the database is stable within an interactive query, but can change across queries within a transaction. (The two modes also differ in update behavior, as we ll discuss later.) These modes are a subset of the four isolation levels defined by SQL 92. The other two SQL 92 modes correspond to behaviors that are useful in a locking-based implementation, but are not interesting in a snapshot-based implementation.
6 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 6 Easy cases We can cover these easy cases pretty quickly: All read-only transactions Many read-only transactions, only one writer (at a time) The all-read-only case is obviously trivial. The one-writer case is nearly trivial: snapshotting isolates the readers from the effects of the writer until the writer commits. Interesting cases have multiple writers to the same or related tables. Then we have to worry about conflicting updates.
7 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 7 But let s look more closely at the one-writer case The writer s updates will all become visible when it commits, and will not be visible before that. Readers running in SERIALIZABLE mode will not see the changes from writers that commit after they (the readers) start. So, they have a stable view of the database throughout each transaction. Readers running in READ COMMITTED mode will be able to see changes beginning at first SQL statement issued after writer commits. So, the view is stable within a statement but not across statements. This is messier, but necessary if (for example) you have procedures that want to observe concurrent changes. Either way, readers do not block the writer, and the writer does not block readers, so concurrent performance is excellent.
8 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 8 Reader correctness: a simple example Suppose we want to cross check deposit totals against bank branch totals: BEGIN; SELECT SUM(balance) FROM accounts; SELECT SUM(branch balance) FROM branches; -- check to see that we got the same result COMMIT; This is correct in serializable mode, but wrong in read committed mode. To select serializable mode, either add SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL SERIALIZABLE; to each transaction block (just after BEGIN), or do SET DEFAULT TRANSACTION ISOLATION TO SERIALIZABLE; (this can be set in the postgresql.conf file, or per-connection).
9 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 9 An important coding rule Be sure that reader activity is broken into transactions of appropriate length. Pure reader transactions should typically be run in SERIALIZABLE mode, so that they see a consistent database view throughout the transaction; then you set the transaction boundaries to define the times when you want to recognize updates committed by other clients. If you start one serializable transaction and hold it for the entire run of an application, you ll never observe any changes in database state, other than those you make yourself. This is what you want in a few cases (for instance, the backup utility pg dump does it to make a self-consistent dump) but usually it s not what you want.
10 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 10 Beware of really long transactions Holding a transaction open means that rows potentially visible to that transaction can t be reclaimed during VACUUM, even if they re long dead to everyone else. Unlike Oracle, we won t bomb out when a limited rollback area is filled; but once your whole disk fills up, you ve got a problem anyway. So, avoid coding an application in a way that allows it to issue BEGIN and then go to sleep for hours or days. Even though it s not doing anything, it may be blocking VACUUM from recovering space.
11 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 11 The rules for concurrent writing Two concurrent transactions cannot write (UPDATE, DELETE, or SELECT FOR UPDATE) the same row. They can proceed as long as they write nonoverlapping sets of rows. If a transaction tries to write a row already written by a concurrent transaction: 1. If other transaction is still in progress, wait for it to commit or abort. 2. If it aborted, proceed (using the non-updated version of the row). 3. If it committed: (a) In SERIALIZABLE mode: abort with can t serialize error. (b) In READ COMMITTED mode: proceed, using the newly-committed (latest) version of the row as the starting point for my operation. (But first, recheck the new row to see if it still satisfies the WHERE clause of my query; if not, ignore it.)
12 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 12 Our first concurrent-writers example We want to keep count of hits on different pages of a website. We have a table with one row per webpage, and we are going to have a lot of clients (webserver threads) concurrently executing something like UPDATE webpages SET hits = hits + 1 WHERE url =... ; Question: is this safe? In particular, can we ever lose a hit count because two clients do this statement in parallel on the same row?
13 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 13 Concurrent writers can fail without some interlock It s easy to see that there could be a problem: UPDATE webpages SET hits = hits + 1 WHERE url =... ; CLIENT 1 CLIENT 2 reads row, sees hits = 531 reads row, sees hits = 531 computes hits+1 = 532 computes hits+1 = 532 writes hits = 532 writes hits = 532 commit commit Oops... final state of the row is 532, not 533 as we d wish.
14 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 14 READ COMMITTED works perfectly for this But this bug will not occur in PostgreSQL. In READ COMMITTED mode, the second client is forced to redo his computation: CLIENT 1 CLIENT 2 reads row, sees hits = 531 reads row, sees hits = 531 computes hits+1 = 532 computes hits+1 = 532 writes hits = 532 tries to write row, must wait commit re-reads row, sees hits = 532 re-computes hits+1 = 533 writes hits = 533 commit
15 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 15 READ COMMITTED vs. SERIALIZABLE mode In SERIALIZABLE mode, the second client would instead get a Can t serialize access due to concurrent update error, and would have to retry the transaction until he succeeded. You always need to code a retry loop in the client when you are using SERIALIZABLE mode for a writing transaction. Why would you want to use SERIALIZABLE mode, given that it requires extra client-side programming? Because READ COMMITTED doesn t scale very well to more complex situations.
16 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 16 Example with separate read and write commands Suppose we wanted to do our updates as a SELECT then UPDATE: BEGIN; SELECT hits FROM webpages WHERE url =... ; -- client internally computes $newval = $hits + 1 UPDATE webpages SET hits = $newval WHERE url =... ; COMMIT; This might look silly, but it s not so silly if the internal computation is complex, or if you need data from multiple database rows to make the computation, or if you d like to know exactly what you just updated the hits count to.
17 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 17 READ COMMITTED case In READ COMMITTED mode, this approach does not work: CLIENT 1 CLIENT 2 reads row, sees hits = 531 reads row, sees hits = 531 computes $newval = 532 computes $newval = 532 writes hits = 532 tries to write row, must wait commit re-reads row, sees hits = 532 re-computes $newval, still 532 writes hits = 532 commit
18 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 18 Solution #1: use SELECT FOR UPDATE, not just SELECT, to read the input data We can make it work by doing this: BEGIN; SELECT hits FROM webpages WHERE url =... FOR UPDATE; -- client internally computes $newval = $hits + 1 UPDATE webpages SET hits = $newval WHERE url =... ; COMMIT; FOR UPDATE causes the initial SELECT to acquire a row lock on the target row, thus making it safe to do our internal computation and update the row. Furthermore, SELECT FOR UPDATE returns the latest updated contents of the row, so we aren t working with stale data.
19 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 19 How SELECT FOR UPDATE solution works CLIENT 1 CLIENT 2 locks row, reads hits = 531 tries to lock row, must wait computes $newval = 532 writes hits = 532 commit locks row, reads hits = 532 computes $newval = 533 writes hits = 533 commit We need both the delay till commit and the read of the updated value to make this work. Notice SELECT FOR UPDATE may return data committed after its start time, which is different from plain SELECT s behavior in READ COMMITTED mode.
20 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 20 Solution #2: use SERIALIZABLE mode and retry on serialization error loop BEGIN; SELECT hits FROM webpages WHERE url =... ; -- client internally computes $newval = $hits + 1 UPDATE webpages SET hits = $newval WHERE url =... ; if (no error) break out of loop; else ROLLBACK; end loop COMMIT; This works because client will re-read the new hits value during retry. The UPDATE will succeed only if the data read is still current.
21 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 21 The client could get confused, too Consider this small variant of the example, running in READ COMMITTED mode: BEGIN; SELECT hits FROM webpages WHERE url =... ; UPDATE webpages SET hits = hits + 1 WHERE url =... ; COMMIT; If someone else increments the hits count while the SELECT is running, the UPDATE will compute the correct updated value... but it will be two more than what we just read in the SELECT, not one more. (And that s what we d see if we did another SELECT.) If your application logic could get confused by this sort of thing, you need to use either SELECT FOR UPDATE or SERIALIZABLE mode.
22 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 22 Performance comparison The READ COMMITTED SELECT FOR UPDATE approach is essentially pessimistic locking: get the lock first, then do your work. The SERIALIZABLE retry-loop approach is essentially optimistic locking with retry. It avoids the overhead of getting the row lock beforehand, at the cost of having to redo the whole transaction if there is a conflict. SELECT FOR UPDATE wins if contention is heavy (since the serializable approach will be wasting work pretty often). SERIALIZABLE wins if contention for specific rows is light.
23 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 23 What about updating multiple rows? Example: transfer $ from Alice s account to Bob s account. Let s try to do it in READ COMMITTED mode: BEGIN; UPDATE accounts SET balance = balance WHERE ownername = Alice ; UPDATE accounts SET balance = balance WHERE ownername = Bob ; COMMIT; (Or we could do the arithmetic on the client side, in which case we d need SELECT FOR UPDATE then UPDATE.) This is correct... but...
24 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 24 We have trouble if the same rows can be updated in different orders Problem: suppose another transaction is concurrently transferring from Bob s account to Alice s. CLIENT 1 CLIENT 2 locks and updates Alice s row locks and updates Bob s row tries to lock Bob s row, must wait tries to lock Alice s row, must wait We have a classic deadlock situation. PostgreSQL will detect the deadlock and get out of it by aborting one of the two transactions with a deadlock error. (The other one will then be able to complete.)
25 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 25 So you end up needing a retry loop anyway We can recover from such failures by placing a retry loop around the whole transaction on the client side. The transaction that got killed to resolve the deadlock will be retried, and eventually will complete successfully. In such cases READ COMMITTED isn t any simpler to program than SERIALIZABLE mode: you need the same retry loop either way. (The expected failures are slightly different, but the response to them is the same.) Unless you re expecting lots of contention, you might as well use SERIALIZABLE mode and avoid the row-locking overhead.
26 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 26 Multi-row constraints, or why serializable mode isn t really serializable Suppose we want to check that we always have at least $1000 total cash in our checking and savings accounts. A typical transaction will look like: BEGIN; UPDATE my accounts SET balance = balance - $withdrawal WHERE accountid = checking ; SELECT SUM(balance) FROM my accounts; if (sum ) COMMIT; else ROLLBACK; Is this safe? NO, not even in serializable mode.
27 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 27 Multi-row constraints can fail Suppose we have $600 in each account and we concurrently try to withdraw $200 from each. CLIENT 1 CLIENT 2 read checking balance, get 600 update checking balance to 400 read savings balance, get 600 update savings balance to 400 run SUM, get run SUM, get commit commit Now the total is only $800; oops. Neither client saw the other s uncommitted change, so the constraint checks both succeeded.
28 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 28 Some observations This example proves that SERIALIZABLE mode isn t really serializable, because if we d done the two transactions serially (in either order) the second one would have seen the problem and aborted. Technically, the difficulty here is that PostgreSQL doesn t do predicate locking, which is necessary for full serializability guarantees. (Predicate locking means write-locking all rows that satisfy the WHERE condition of any query executed by any open transaction. It s horridly expensive... ) Note that it doesn t matter whether the constraint check is done by a client command or inside a trigger. The same visibility rules apply either way.
29 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 29 Solution: use explicit locking The only solution available in current PostgreSQL is to do explicit locking at the table level: BEGIN; LOCK TABLE my accounts IN SHARE ROW EXCLUSIVE MODE; UPDATE my accounts SET balance = balance - $withdrawal WHERE accountid = checking ; SELECT SUM(balance) FROM my accounts; -- commit if sum , else abort Since only one transaction can hold SHARE ROW EXCLUSIVE lock at a time, we know that only our own transaction is writing the table, and so the SUM will not miss any uncommitted updates. Furthermore, any new writer will have to wait at his LOCK command until we ve committed our own update, and then he ll see it when he does his SUM.
30 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 30 Explicit locking and SERIALIZABLE mode By the way, this solution works in either READ COMMITTED or SERIALIZABLE mode: BEGIN; LOCK TABLE my accounts IN SHARE ROW EXCLUSIVE MODE; UPDATE my accounts SET balance = balance - $withdrawal WHERE accountid = checking ; SELECT SUM(balance) FROM my accounts; -- commit if sum , else abort The reason it works in SERIALIZABLE mode is that the transaction snapshot is not taken until the first DML statement (the UPDATE). If we have to wait at the LOCK for other writers, their commits will be included in the snapshot. Note this means that any explicit locks taken in a SERIALIZABLE transaction had better be taken at the top, or they may not do what you want.
31 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 31 What about concurrent inserts? You might have noticed that I defined concurrent writes as UPDATE, DELETE, or SELECT FOR UPDATE of the same existing row. What about concurrent insertion cases? Actually, it s not possible for two transactions to try to insert the same row any inserted row is a unique object by definition. So multiple insertions can happen in parallel as far as PostgreSQL is concerned. The only way to get a conflict during insert is if you have a uniqueness constraint (a unique index) on a table. If two concurrent transactions try to insert rows having the same key value, then the second one will block until the first one finishes. If the first transaction commits, the second one must abort because of the uniqueness constraint; but if the first one aborts the second one can proceed.
32 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 32 How do I manufacture unique row numbers? If you want to assign a serial number to each row in a table, you might try INSERT INTO mytable (id,...) VALUES( (SELECT MAX(id) + 1 FROM mytable),...); This will not work safely unless you take an explicit lock on the whole table, which will prevent concurrent insertions. (It ll also be quite slow, because MAX scans the whole table in PostgreSQL.) A variant is to use a single-row table to hold the next ID number to assign: SELECT next FROM mytable counter FOR UPDATE; UPDATE mytable counter SET next = $next + 1; INSERT INTO mytable (id,...) VALUES($next,...); This works (as long as you use FOR UPDATE), but you still have the problem that only one insertion transaction can proceed at a time. The implicit write lock on the counter row is the bottleneck.
33 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 33 Solution: sequence objects To get around this, PostgreSQL offers sequence objects, which are much like the single-row counter table of the previous example: CREATE SEQUENCE mytable counter;... INSERT INTO mytable (id,...) VALUES( nextval( mytable counter ),...); Sequences are special because nextval is a non-transactional operation: it is never rolled back, and so there s no need to hold a lock on the sequence. When you do a nextval, you only gain exclusive access to the sequence for long enough to compute the next value; then other people can access the sequence while the rest of your transaction proceeds. This allows multiple transactions to proceed with inserts concurrently.
34 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 34 More about sequences If you want to find out what ID value you just inserted, you can do INSERT INTO mytable (id,...) VALUES( nextval( mytable counter ),...); SELECT currval( mytable counter ); Many people think this might be unsafe, but it is perfectly safe because currval is local to your session: it tells you the value that nextval last returned for this sequence in your session, not the last value obtained by anyone else. So concurrent transactions can t affect the value you get. A limitation when using sequences to assign serial numbers is that aborted insertion transactions may leave holes in the set of used serial numbers when a transaction fails after having called nextval, it won t insert a row into the table, but the sequence doesn t back up.
35 PostgreSQL Concurrency Issues 35 Summary (the whole talk on one slide) SERIALIZABLE mode: snapshot isolation; no read locks row locks on updated/deleted rows (block only writers, not readers) can t write row already written by concurrent transaction no predicate locks (hence, not truly serializable) simple to reason about, but you need a transaction retry loop READ COMMITTED mode is similar except: snapshot is updated at start of each new SQL command can write row already written by concurrent transaction (update starts from newest version) fine for single-row updates, doesn t scale so well to complex cases Use explicit locking to check multi-row consistency conditions.
