Technical Update
 EDB Postgres Failover Manager 3.8

WHAT’S NEW
This update is notifying you of a new software release, EDB Postgres Failover Manager (EFM) version 3.8. 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:
  • EDB Postgres Advanced Server and PostgreSQL v12 support for non-sudo use case - EFM 3.8 supports database version 12 in both the default and non-sudo cases. Note: v12 is not supported in EFM 3.8 for Debian and Ubuntu.
  • Handling stuck synchronous master - EFM will detect when a master no longer has enough synchronous standbys to accept writes, and can optionally reconfigure the master to take it out of synchronous mode.
  • Support for changing restore_command - If using a restore_command on standbys that pulls directly from the primary database, can have EFM update this command after a promotion.
