PostgreSQL builtin & contrib
PostgreSQL collects lots of data on its own and offers it via the pg_stat(io)_ system views
The following extensions offer access to Postgres internals which may be of interest or collect additional information. Most of them are shipped with Postgres (the -contrib packages may need to be installed) and can be activated via the extension interface.
