6 folks turned out for our first Streaming Replication lab day. Here’s what we accomplished:
– lively discussion about the different pieces involved (WAL files, various GUCs, etc)
– worked on a step-by-step cheatsheet
– got sr running between two vms, between two Pg instances on the same VM on different ports, and between two Pg instances on the same VM via unix sockets
– learned some new tools (terminator, anyone?)
– spread the \e love
There will be a followup to this lab, as we didn’t cover everything we wanted to, and (of course) created more questions for ourselves.
Our next regular meeting will be Thursday Feb 20th; watch for the announcement next week.
