Agenda Quorum Commit for Synchronous Replication Connection “Failover” in libpq Traceable Commit Physical Replication Temporary replication slot Quorum Commit for Synchronous Replication PostgreSQL 10 implements Quorum-based synchronous replication, which arbitrarily selects an instance to perform synchronous replication. The synchronous replication environment is set by the synchronous_standby_names configuration parameter as...
Introduction Before 10 version PostgreSQL was supported only Physical Streaming Replication (PSR). PSR is based on the Write-Ahead Log (WAL), which means that all changes are written to the binary transaction log and sent to all standby servers. The changes described there are very low-level and it’s give garanties that the data...

Introduction Hugepages is a mechanism that allows the Linux kernel to utilize the multiple page size capabilities of modern hardware architectures. Linux uses pages as the basic unit of memory, where physical memory is partitioned and accessed using the basic page unit. The default page size is 4096 Bytes...
Sometimes there are situations when you need to select a certain number of random entries from the table. Since version 9.5, this feature has appeared. Using TABLESAMPLE, you can not select all the data from the table, but only some of them. Synopsis: SELECT [...] FROM table_name TABLESAMPLE sampling_method...
