So for streaming replication, will I need to have a standby.enabled file, or will there be a parameter in postgresql.conf (or included files) which controls whether or not that server is a standby, available? In the best of all possible worlds, I'd really like to have a GUC which 100% controls whether or not the current server is a standby. -- Josh Berkus PostgreSQL Experts Inc. http://pgexperts.com -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
