Thank you, I read the user-interface part now, looks good to me. I found the following issue when shutting down a master with a connected replica that uses a physical failover slot: 2016-02-23 20:33:42.546 CET,,,54998,,56ccb3f3.d6d6,3,,2016-02-23 20:33:07 CET,,0,DEBUG,00000,"performing replication slot checkpoint",,,,,,,,,"" 2016-02-23 20:33:42.594 CET,,,55002,,56ccb3f3.d6da,4,,2016-02-23 20:33:07 CET,,0,DEBUG,00000,"archived transaction log file ""000000010000000000000003""",,,,,,,,,"" 2016-02-23 20:33:42.601 CET,,,54998,,56ccb3f3.d6d6,4,,2016-02-23 20:33:07 CET,,0,PANIC,XX000,"concurrent transaction log activity while database system is shutting down",,,,,,,,,"" 2016-02-23 20:33:43.537 CET,,,54995,,56ccb3f3.d6d3,5,,2016-02-23 20:33:07 CET,,0,LOG,00000,"checkpointer process (PID 54998) was terminated by signal 6: Abort trap",,,,,,,,,"" 2016-02-23 20:33:43.537 CET,,,54995,,56ccb3f3.d6d3,6,,2016-02-23 20:33:07 CET,,0,LOG,00000,"terminating any other active server processes",,,,,,,,, Basically, the issue is that CreateCheckPoint calls CheckpointReplicationSlots, which currently produces WAL, and this violates the assumption at line xlog.c:8492 if (shutdown && checkPoint.redo != ProcLastRecPtr) ereport(PANIC, (errmsg("concurrent transaction log activity while database system is shutting down"))); There are a couple of incorrect comments logical.c: 90 There's some things missing to allow this: I think it should be “There are some things missing to allow this:” logical.c:93 "we need we would need” slot.c:889 "and there's no latch to set, so poll” - clearly there is a latch used in the code below. Also, slot.c:301 emits an error message for an attempt to create a failover slot on the replica after acquiring and releasing the locks and getting the shared memory slot, even though all the data to check for this condition is available right at the beginning of the function. Shouldn’t it avoid the extra work if it’s not needed? > > > -- > Craig Ringer http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ > <http://www.2ndquadrant.com/> > PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Training & Services > <0001-Allow-logical-slots-to-follow-timeline-switches.patch><0002-Allow-replication-slots-to-follow-failover.patch><0003-Retain-extra-WAL-for-failover-slots-in-base-backups.patch><0004-Add-the-UI-and-for-failover-slots.patch><0005-Document-failover-slots.patch><0006-Add-failover-to-pg_replication_slots.patch><0007-not-for-inclusion-Test-script-for-failover-slots.patch> Kind regards, -- Oleksii
