MongoDB FDW for PostgreSQL 9.1 ============================== This PostgreSQL extension implements a Foreign Data Wrapper (FDW) for MongoDB. For an example setup that demonstrates this wrapper's use, please see http://www.citusdata.com/blog/51-run-sql-on-mongodb. Please also note that this version of mongo_fdw only works with PostgreSQL 9.1. Building -------- The MongoDB FDW already includes the official MongoDB C Driver version 0.6. When you type make, the C driver's source code also gets automatically compiled and linked. To build on POSIX compliant systems (Linux and OS X), you simply need to include the pg_config directory path in your make command. This path is typically the same as your PostgreSQL installation's bin/ directory path. For example: $ PATH=/usr/local/pgsql/bin/:$PATH make $ sudo PATH=/usr/local/pgsql/bin/:$PATH make install Note that we have tested the mongo_fdw extension only on Fedora and Ubuntu systems. Please let us know if you run into any issues on other systems. Usage ----- The following parameters can be set on a MongoDB foreign server object. * address: The address or hostname of the MongoDB server. Defaults to "127.0.0.1". * port: The port number of the MongoDB server. Defaults to 27017. The following parameters can be set on a MongoDB foreign table object. * database: The name of the MongoDB database to query. Defaults to "test". * collection: The name of the MongoDB collection to query. Defaults to foreign table name specified in the create command. As an example, the following commands demonstrate loading the mongo_fdw wrapper, creating a server, and then creating a foreign table associated with a MongoDB collection. The commands also show specifying option values in the OPTIONS clause. If an option value isn't provided, the wrapper uses the default value mentioned above. We also currently use the internal PostgreSQL NAME type to represent the BSON object identifier type (_id field). -- load extension first time after install CREATE EXTENSION mongo_fdw; -- create server object CREATE SERVER mongo_server FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER mongo_fdw OPTIONS (address '127.0.0.1', port '27017'); -- create foreign table CREATE FOREIGN TABLE customer_reviews ( _id NAME, customer_id TEXT, review_date TIMESTAMP, review_rating INTEGER, product_id CHAR(10), product_title TEXT, product_group TEXT, product_category TEXT, similar_product_ids CHAR(10) ) SERVER mongo_server OPTIONS (database 'test', collection 'customer_reviews'); Limitations ----------- * mongo_fdw currently can't reach into nested BSON documents. We can overcome this limitation by interpreting the period character in column names as a separator, and recursing into the BSON document for each separated key name. * mongo_fdw currently can't access BSON document keys that have upper-case letters in them. This is because column names in SQL are case insensitive. We can overcome this limitation by having an option for each column name, where the option value is case sensitive. * mongo_fdw only incorporates the document count and average document size when estimating costs for the query execution plan. A better estimate also includes data distribution statistics; and PostgreSQL 9.2 allows for this. In the mean time, you run EXPLAIN on your queries to see the selected execution plans.
