Having the ability to do this:
SELECT * FROM pg_stat_bgwriter
BETWEEN (current_time - '1 Day'::interval) AND current_time;
Would be very useful. Which I can do with logs currently. You are
correct. However from a usability, remote reporting and manageability
perspective it certainly is not the same as something as I describe
Note I am perfectly willing to table this until we have a full todo and
specification for a feature.
