Create and manage tables which will be partitioned by static ranges. The partitioning column can be any type for which there is a corresponding range type, even if that range type was user-created.
For function documentation and examples, see the range_partitioning.md file.
Requirements: PostgreSQL 9.2 or greater.
In the directory where you downloaded range_partitioning, run
Log into PostgreSQL.
CREATE EXTENSION range_partitioning;
CREATE EXTENSION range_partitioning SCHEMA my_schema;
A role named
range_partitioning is created. Grant that role to any user who needs to create or remove partitions.
Run "make install" same as above to put the script files and libraries in place. Then run the following in PostgreSQL itself:
ALTER EXTENSION range_partitioning UPDATE TO '<latest version>';
