Thanks. Indeed pgBouncer is the usual candidate in front of postgres streaming replication, together with pgpool. Take care that your link on pgBouncer dates back from 2008 !. I had a look at pgBouncer in the past, but it was not actively maintained at that time. So I settled on a combination of pgpool and repmgr. People on pgpool mailing list are very reactive and helpful and the doc on the project is continuously improving. Pierre

Good product and good support (on the list° This looks a very interesting possibility, although it is more related to automated failover than to load balancing of read only queries : http://paquier.xyz/ postgresql-2/postgres-10- libpq-read-write/, depending on your client it might be supported. It is not supported - yet ? - by the node-postgres driver.

There is a nice article about that. https://www.last.fm/user/Russ/journal/2008/02/21/zd_postgres_connection_pools:_pgpool_vs._pgbouncer I used PgBouncer in a few of ny previous positions and found it to be very fast and efficient. -- Melvin Davidson I reserve the right to fantasize. Whether or not you wish to share my fantasy is entirely up to you.
