pd2pg imports data from the PagerDuty API into a Postgres database for easy querying and analysis.
It helps you:
- Collect summary statistics about on-call activity.
- Calculate per-user, per-service, per-escalation-policy on-call metrics.
- Determine the frequency of on-hours vs. off-hours pages.
- Produce custom on-call reports with incident-level detail.
- Back-test proposed on-call changes.
- Perform one-off queries against historical pager data.
pd2pg imports user, service, escalation policy, incident, and log entry (incident event) data from the PagerDuty API into a specified Postgres database. The import is incremental and idempotent, so you can run it as often as you'd like to refresh your database.
You'll need the following config set in environment variables:
PAGERDUTY_API_KEY: a read-only API key from
DATABASE_URL: URL to a Postgres database, e.g.
Perform a one-time schema load with:
$ psql $DATABASE_URL < schema.sql
Then refresh the database as often as desired with:
$ bundle exec pd2pg
pd2pg makes PagerDuty data available as regular Postgres data, so you can query it in the usual way, e.g. with:
$ psql $DATABASE_URL
For example, to count the number of incidents per service over the past 28 days:
select services.name, count(incidents.id) from incidents, services where incidents.created_at > now() - '28 days'::interval and incidents.service_id = services.id group by services.name order by count(incidents.id) desc
Or show all incidents that notified a specific user over the past week:
select log_entries.created_at as notification_time, incidents.html_url as incident_url, incidents.trigger_summary_subject, services.name as service_name from users, log_entries, incidents, services where users.email = 'email@example.com' and log_entries.user_id = users.id and log_entries.type = 'notify' and log_entries.created_at > now() - '7 days'::interval and incidents.id = log_entries.incident_id and incidents.service_id = services.id order by incidents.created_at desc
