Technical Alert/Update Information

 

EnterpriseDB Technical Update for EFM 3.2 #20180806

 

PRODUCT TYPE: EDB Failover Manager

 

RELEASE DATE: 8/6/2018
 
WHAT’S NEW

This update is notifying you of a new software release EDB Postgres Failover Manager (EFM) version 3.2. Failover Manager provides the 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:

    •    Better integration with pgPool and other load balancers - New script hooks to be called when a node should be added or removed from a load balancer. Supports all Failover Manager use cases, such as switchover and standby failure.
    •    Manage minimum severity level for notification scripts - The Failover Manager notification.level property now also controls when a notification script is executed.
    •    Improved node information in logs - Address/hostname included whenever a node’s logical address is logged to make agent logs more readable.

Defects corrected in this update:

    •    Notification severity now applies to notification scripts (#769700).
