PostgreSQL Partition Manager
pg_partman is an extension to create and manage both time-based and serial-based table partition sets. Sub-partitoning is also supported. Child table & trigger function creation is all managed by the extension itself. Tables with existing data can also have their data partitioned in easily managed smaller batches. Optional retention policy can automatically drop partitions no longer needed. A background worker BGW process is included to automatically run partition maintenance without the need of an external scheduler cron, etc in most cases.
