Core utility

A utility provided as part of the core PostgreSQL distribution

A core utility is a utility program or application provided as part of the core PostgreSQL distribution. In contrast to server utilities, these do not need to reside on the same host as the database they are being executed against.

Note that the PostgreSQL documentation refers to these as "client applications", however this website uses the term "core utility" to differentiate them from other applications which are not part of the core PostgreSQL distribution (including client applications provided as contrib modules and third-party applications).
