I'm a little bit confused by the way we're dragging standby_mode into this conversation. If you're using pg_standby, you can set standby_mode=off and still have a standby. If you're using a simple recovery command that just copies files, you need to set standby_mode=on if you don't want the standby to exit recovery and promote. But I think of standby_mode as meaning "should we use the internal standby loop rather than depending on an external tool?" rather than "should we become a standby?". Maybe I'm confused. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
