Re: [HACKERS] Documenting Replication Solutions

2006-07-24 Thread Markus Schiltknecht

Hello Christopher,

I remember Bruce pushing towards a 'PostgreSQL Development 
Group'-statement about replication solutions for PostgreSQL. AFAIK, 
there is a lot of uncertainty about replication solutions and I think it 
would be a good thing to give people some guidance. I think in a FAQ or 
such we should cover these type of questions:


- Can I configure a standby server for hot-failover?

- Can I do load-balancing?

- What kind of replication is possible with PostgreSQL, what do the 
different solutions implement?


- What's the development status of Slony-II?, of Postgres-R, PgCluster, 
etc...


- What's the difference between Slony-II and Postgres-R?

Where on the website do we put such a FAQ? Or should some of these 
questions be part of the main FAQ?


Regards

Markus

at the code sprint, we agreed to put together some documentation about
current and upcoming replication solutions for PostgreSQL. Is somebody
already working on that?


I don't recall that anyone expressly agreed to do so; I'll see if I
can, this week...

A META-FAQ Style document on techdocs would be nice... we could then link to 
that from the pg faq.
