the postmaster should be running all the time in any case.
30 7-19/4,23 * * * /backup/dumpit
is the line i have in cron ( 30 mins past the hour between 7am and 7pm every
4 hours and again at 11pm )
/usr/local/pgsql/bin/pg_dump edb | gzip > /backup/edb-backup_$backdate
cp /backup/edb-backup_$backdate /var/autofs/misc/ecalnet/
are the contents of the file dumpit.
this creates a gzipped dump of the database with a name of
edb-backup_200108240730 for example, then copies it to another directory.
