WHAT’S NEW This update is notifying you of a new software release, EDB Postgres Failover Manager (EFM) version 3.3. Failover Manager provides high availability infrastructure for EDB Postgres clusters. Failover Manager monitors the members of a Postgres cluster, identifies and verifies database failures quickly and reliably, and if needed promotes a standby node to become the cluster master and issues alerts.
Highlights of this release include:
Integration with syslog for logging - Can now use normal file logging and/or syslog service.
Hostname for VIP - Can specify a hostname for the virtual IP address that is assigned to the master node (780874).
Automatic resume at startup - The auto.resume.period now applies to startup as well, making it easier to automatically start failover manager and the database at boot time. (781594)
Can disable VIP check before promotion - For certain environments, can have failover even if the master node still temporarily has the virtual IP address assigned.
Defects corrected in this update:
Use more fine-grained checks for database user privileges. With database versions 9.6 and higher, failover manager will check only for the specific permissions the database user needs to run. (796835)
IS THIS UPDATE FOR ME? This announcement is for EDB customers who have a current database subscription for EDB Postgres Standard or EDB Postgres Enterprise and are either currently using or are interested in deploying EDB Failover Manager.
