Connecting to TimescaleDB

TimescaleDB can work with any tool that connects to PostgreSQL. In this section, we provide some basic instructions on connecting with popular tools for running queries against PostgreSQL.

In most cases, if you don't find instructions for a tool below or the instructions we provide don't seem to work in your scenario, the tooling website will certainly have up-to-date instructions for connecting.

Generally, you'll need to know the following information to connect any tool to your TimescaleDB instance:

  • Hostname
  • Port
  • Username
  • Password
  • Database name

With that information ready to go, you can connect using one of these tools.

Connect with psql: psql is the standard command line interface for interacting with a PostgreSQL or TimescaleDB instance and used in most of our tutorials and documentation.
