I created a PostgreSQL 10 instance on Amazon RDS with the PostGIS 2.4 extension in my database enabled. I want to test the performance of Amazon RDS as a dynamic vector-tile server.
This hinges on the ability to use the ST_AsMVT and ST_AsMVTGeom commands in the PostGIS enabled database.
These functions require the
libprotobuf-c libraries to be installed on the system which hosts the PostgreSQL instance.
It seems that Amazon RDS instances have no support for
libprotobuf-c and PostgreSQL/PostGIS on Amazon RDS cannot make use of the vector-tile functions which have been introduced with PostGIS 2.4.
Does anyone know about means to enable
libprotobuf-c support on Amazon RDS?
