Hello, Please find attached the WIP patch for the proposed feature. It is built based on the already discussed design.
Changes made: - add new parameter "sync_file" to provide the location of the pg_syncinfo file. The default is 'ConfigDir/pg_syncinfo.conf', same as for pg_hba and pg_ident file. - pg_syncinfo file will hold the sync rep information in the approved JSON format. - synchronous_standby_names can be set to 'pg_syncinfo.conf' to read the JSON value stored in the file. - All the standbys mentioned in the s_s_names or the pg_syncinfo file currently get the priority as 1 and all others as 0 (async) - Various functions in syncrep.c to read the json file and store the values in a struct to be used in checking the quorum status of syncrep standbys (SyncRepGetQuorumRecPtr function). It does not support the current behavior for synchronous_standby_names = '*'. I am yet to thoroughly test the patch. Thoughts? -- Beena Emerson
