WHAT’S NEW This update is notifying you of a new software release, EDB Postgres Failover Manager (EFM) version 3.4. 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:
New property to treat all master shutdowns as potential failures - This helps ensure that accidental shutdowns result in a failover.
Retry VIP checks during promotion - This feature helps make sure failover still happens even if an isolated master does not release the VIP before the rest of the cluster promotes.
Exit notifications now at WARNING level - All agent exit notifications, including failures to start, are now sent with WARNING level instead of INFO.
Defects corrected in this update:
Add retry for standby that can reach VIP before promoting. (776029)
Enable failover for graceful master shutdown (735146)
EFM should send WARNING notification when agent fails to start (809122)
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.
