You can also use a GUI tool such as pgAdmin or OmniDB, which we discussed first in Chapter 1, First Steps to get a quick view of what is going on in the database.
If you use pgAdmin, for better control you need to install the adminpack extension in the destination database by issuing this command:
CREATE EXTENSION adminpack;
This extension is a part of the additionally supplied modules of PostgreSQL (aka contrib). It provides several administration functions that pgAdmin (and other tools) can use in order to manage, control, and monitor a Postgres server from a remote location.
