01.06.2017 - Announcing The Release Of repmgr 3.3



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

Oxford, United Kingdom - January 6, 2017

2ndQuadrant is proud to announce the release of repmgr version 3.3, the popular tool for PostgreSQL failover since 2010.

repmgr 3.3 provides a number of usability improvements for the repmgr command line utility, particularly for the ‘standby clone’ and ‘standby register’ commands. These changes are primarily aimed at making repmgr easier to use when provisioning complex replication clusters.

repmgrd users should take note of the changes to repmgr logging behaviour.

From repmgr 3.3, support for the upcoming PostgreSQL 10 release will be provided as far as possible. PostgreSQL 10 is still under development with significant changes expected to the implementation of replication functionality; anyone wishing to test repmgr with PostgreSQL 10 should build from the repmgr master branch. Links



repmgr is an open source package that helps DBAs and System Administrators manage a cluster of PostgreSQL databases. By taking advantage of the Hot Standby capability introduced in PostgreSQL 9, repmgr greatly simplifies the process of setting up and managing databases with high availability and scalability requirements.

repmgr is distributed under GPL v3 and maintained by 2ndQuadrant.

There is a forum with variety of topics and blog section with relevant posts.

We are going to organize PGDAY at the beginning of the next year in Israel.

We are calling all PostgreSQL users in Israel to join effort and build strong and valuable community.

We initiated the process of product documentation translation. This is the time consuming process and we'll be glad if other users will be able to help us.

11.01.2016 - PostgreSQL Magazine presents : The Paper Elephant #01



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

The PostgreSQL Magazine project is back with an original concept named The Paper Elephant : a folded newspaper with a dynamic look & feel.

As always the content comes directly from the community ! In this first issue, we gathered articles from key members of the PostgreSQL project: Josh Berkus talks about the new version numbering scheme,
Hans-Jürgen Schönig writes about performance and Craig Kierstens an overview of JSON, JSONB and hstore. You'll also find an interview of Paul Ramsey from the PostGIS project.

The Paper Elephant is an independent media edited by and for the PostgreSQL Community. This issue was created with the financial help of PostgreSQL Europe and many benevolent contributors ( witers, editors, reviewers ). Kudos to all of them.

Just like the name says, The Paper Elephant is a "paper first" media: it is designed to be printed out and distributed during events (conferences, meetups, etc.) to promote PostgreSQL.

The first edition will be available at PostgreSQL Conference Europe 2016, Paris Open Source Summit 2016 and FOSDEM 2017. If you want to distribute the magazine at a local IT event, please Contact Us !

If you want a glimpse of the newspaper, you can download the PDF version here: http://pgmag.org/download

The Paper Elephant is an open and community-driven project. Joins us at http://www.pgmag.org/contribute

11.01.2016 - pgBackRest 1.09 Released



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

November 1, 2016: Crunchy Data is proud to announce pgBackRest 1.09, Reliable PostgreSQL Backup & Restore.

Release 1.09

Since 1.0 we have improved scalability, added backup from a standby, selective restore, and support for the 9.6 non-exclusive backup method. All the major new features since 1.0 are detailed below.

Links

New Features

Improved Multi-Processing Scalability

Converted Perl threads to child processes to improve compatibility and greatly increase scalability. 3TB/hour backup speeds can be achieved with 32 cores and 10GbE, including compression and checksums.

Backup from a Standby Cluster

Performing backups on a standby host greatly reduces CPU and IO load on the master host. pgBackRest copies the majority of the files from the standby and only a few from the master, while still producing a backup exactly as if it were performed entirely on the master.

Selective Restore

Selected databases can be restored from a cluster backup to save space when not all the databases are required. WAL replay during restore takes place for all databases so some space will be used, but generally far less than if the unneeded databases were restored completely. After recovery completes the unrestored databases will not be accessible but can be dropped in the usual way.

Non-Exclusive Backups

Support for non-exclusive backups in PostgreSQL 9.6.

Directory/File Exclusions

Exclude directories during backup that are cleaned, recreated, or zeroed by PostgreSQL at startup. These include pgsql_tmp and pg_stat_tmp. The postgresql.auto.conf.tmp file is now excluded in addition to files that were already excluded: backup_label.old, postmaster.opts, postmaster.pid, recovery.conf, recovery.done.

Exclude contents of $PGDATA/pg_replslot directory so that replication slots on the master do not become part of the backup.

Enhanced Info Command

Enhanced text output of info command to include timestamps, sizes, and the reference list for all backups.

Check Command

Added check command to validate that pgBackRest is configured correctly for archiving and backups.

Flexible Configuration

More flexible configuration for databases. Master and standby can both be configured on the backup server and pgBackRest will automatically determine which is the master. This means no configuration changes for backup are required after failing over from a master to standby when a separate backup server is used.

About

pgBackRest aims to be a simple, reliable backup and restore system that can seamlessly scale up to the largest databases and workloads. Instead of relying on traditional backup tools like tar and rsync, pgBackRest implements all backup features internally and uses a custom protocol for communicating with remote systems. Removing reliance on tar and rsync allows for better solutions to database-specific backup challenges. The custom remote protocol allows for more flexibility and limits the types of connections that are required to perform a backup which increases security.

Crunchy Data supports the ongoing and active development of pgBackRest as an entirely open source project, released under the BSD-compatible MIT license.
