09.27.2016 - Barman 2.0 Released

View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

Barman (Backup and Recovery Manager) is an open-source administration tool for disaster recovery of PostgreSQL servers written in Python. Barman enables the remote online hot backup of multiple servers in business critical environments, helping make a DBA's life easier during the recovery stage - now with zero data loss.

What's New

The major release of version 2.0 is an important milestone in Barman's journey as it introduces support for a “streaming only” backup of a PostgreSQL server, removing the need for SSH connections altogether.

This is made possible by two significant improvements related to streaming replication:

  • Transparent integration with pg_basebackup for backup operations
  • Full support of replication slots for WAL streaming

Through streaming-only backups, Barman is now able to reach Docker and Windows users of PostgreSQL. From an architectural point of view, Barman is now able to offer even more versatility and flexibility by combining traditional SSH communications with PostgreSQL’s native streaming connections.

Another important addition is support for synchronous WAL streaming that allows zero data loss backups and reduces implementation costs of PostgreSQL clusters with “RPO=0” business continuity requirements.

Barman 2.0 also supports the new concurrent backup API introduced in PostgreSQL 9.6, eliminating the need for the pgespresso extension when taking backups from a standby server.

The new 'barman-cli' package improves integration of Barman with repmgr for better high availability outcomes.

Disaster Recovery

Recovery planning is frequently overlooked during business continuity planning, but failure is always an option. Unfortunately, our experience has shown us that typically, disaster recovery plans are only implemented after suffering severe data loss or down-time. Business critical environments must be prepared for the unexpected and Barman is the right tool organisations can use to be prepared.

Now, through synchronous WAL streaming, Barman allows a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of 0. Barman now also supports PostgreSQL on Windows (experimental) and Docker. Improved support of very large databases and clusters is currently being developed for a future Barman release.

Professional Support for Barman

In addition to the disaster recovery and business continuity support already available through 2ndQuadrant, as the developers of Barman, the team at 2ndQuadrant provides superior support for Barman users. The turnkey disaster recovery solution service includes architecture analysis, installation, training and a final simulation with internal personnel. 2ndQuadrant offers custom solutions, development of new features, training, and 24/7 production support.

Upgrading from Barman 1.X

The 2.0 release requires that users explicitly configure their archiving strategy. Before, the file based archiver controlled by the ‘archiver’ option was enabled by default. When you upgrade your Barman installation to 2.0, make sure you add the appropriate line globally or for any server that requires it. Barman using officially distributed RPM and Debian packages will be automatically updated.

For installation or upgrade instructions, please see the "Links" section below.

For the comprehensive release notes, please read "Barman 2.0 Release Notes".

If you have any questions about Barman and disaster recovery scenarios using Barman, you can reach the dev team using the community mailing list.

09.22.2016 - Announcement: Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL Enhancements: Support for new minor versions, Logical Replication, and Amazon RDS PostgreSQL as a source for AWS DMS

View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

Starting today, you can take advantage of several new enhancements to Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL. These include new minor versions (9.3.14, 9.4.9 and 9.5.2), support for logical replication, event triggers, and the ability to use RDS for PostgreSQL as a source for AWS Database Migration Service.

New Minor Versions:

Customers can now launch new and upgrade their existing Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL instances to new PostgreSQL minor versions 9.3.14, 9.4.9, and 9.5.4, using either the AWS console or Amazon RDS API. These new minor version releases contain several enhancements and fixes to PostgreSQL. To learn more about these new versions, please refer to their release notes:

Release Notes for 9.3.14

Release Notes for 9.4.9

Release Notes for 9.5.4

Logical Replication and support for AWS Database Migration Services

Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL now supports logical replication on RDS for PostgreSQL versions 9.4.9 and 9.5.4. With logical replication, we have added support for logical decoding, and you can setup logical replication slots on your instance and stream changes from the database through these slots. A new rds_replication role, assigned to the master user by default, can be used to grant permissions to manipulate and stream data through logical slots. To enable logical replication, set the parameter rds.logical_replication to 1. These logical slots also enable the RDS for PostgreSQL to be used as a source for AWS Database Migration Service (DMS). You can learn more about using RDS for PostgreSQL as a source for DMS in the AWS Database Blog and RDS documentation.

Event Triggers:

Amazon RDS now supports the event triggers in PostgreSQL versions 9.4.9 and later and version 9.5.4 and later. The master user account can be used to create, modify, rename, and delete event triggers. Event triggers are at the DB instance level, so they apply to all databases on an instance. For more information about event triggers for Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL, refer to the RDS documentation.

New Parameter for RAM Disk Size:

Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL now supports a new parameter, rds.pg_stat_ramdisk_size, which can be used to define the system memory allocated to a RAM disk for storing PostgreSQL stats_temp_directory. Under certain workloads, it can result in improved performance and decreased I/O requirements. You can read about the details of the new parameter here in the RDS documentation.

All the enhancements mentioned above are available in all regions. You can learn more about Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL on the RDS product page and the RDS documentation.

08.11.2016 - Postgres-BDR 9.4 1.0 Released

View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

Oxford, United Kingdom - August 11, 2016

Bi-Directional Replication for PostgreSQL (Postgres-BDR, or BDR) is the first open source multi-master replication system for PostgreSQL to reach full production status, developed by 2ndQuadrant and assisted by a keen user community. BDR is specifically designed for use in geographically distributed clusters, using highly efficient asynchronous logical replication, supporting anything from 2-48 nodes in a distributed database.


Significant improvements related to stability and bug fixes have been made in this release. The most important factors of this release are:

  • Smoother handling of schema changes (DDL) statements allowing increased operational stability and reduced maintenance.
  • Various bug fixes for operational issues demonstrating high level of maturity
  • Performance tuning, especially of global sequence handling
  • Removal of the now deprecated UDR
  • Extensive documentation improvements based upon user feedback

For a more comprehensive list of release notes, please click here:


Postgres-BDR 9.4 1.0 will be supported until December 2019, when PostgreSQL 9.4 goes EOL. BDR continues to be developed and BDR9.6 will be released within 6 months. The BDR project has already delivered the majority of its code into PostgreSQL core, though it will likely be about 2-3 more years before this functionality is available in PostgreSQL core.


BDR is well suited for databases where:

  • Data is distributed globally
  • Majority of data is written to from only one node at a time (For example, the US node mostly writes changes to US customers, each branch office writes mostly to branch-office-specific data, and so on.)
  • There is a need for SELECTs over complete data set (lookups and consolidation)
  • There are OLTP workloads with many smaller transactions
  • Transactions mostly touching non overlapping sets of data
  • There is partition and latency tolerance

However, this is not a comprehensive list and use cases for BDR can vary based on database type and functionality.

In addition, BDR aids business continuity by providing increased availability during network faults. Applications can be closer to the data and more responsive for users, allowing for a much more satisfying end-user experience.


BDR is developed and supported by 2ndQuadrant. 2ndQuadrant provides professional support for BDR, as well as consultation and training. With our deep knowledge of distributed databases, we will ensure that you are able to evaluate your use case and applications and determine the most suitable product or solution.

BDR is also available in 2ndQuadrant Cloud, initially on AWS.

08.11.2016 - 2016-08-11 Security Update Release

View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported versions of our database system, including 9.5.4, 9.4.9, 9.3.14, 9.2.18 and 9.1.23. This release fixes two security issues. It also patches a number of other bugs reported over the last three months. Users who rely on security isolation between database users should update as soon as possible. Other users should plan to update at the next convenient downtime.

Security Issues

Two security holes have been closed by this release:

  • CVE-2016-5423: certain nested CASE expressions can cause the server to crash.
  • CVE-2016-5424: database and role names with embedded special characters can allow code injection during administrative operations like pg_dumpall.

The fix for the second issue also adds an option, -reuse-previous, to psql's \connect command. pg_dumpall will also refuse to handle database and role names containing line breaks after the update. For more information on these issues and how they affect backwards-compatibility, see the Release Notes.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

This update also fixes a number of bugs reported in the last few months. Some of these issues affect only version 9.5, but many affect all supported versions:

  • Fix misbehaviors of IS NULL/IS NOT NULL with composite values
  • Fix three areas where INSERT ... ON CONFLICT failed to work properly with other SQL features.
  • Make INET and CIDR data types properly reject bad IPv6 values
  • Prevent crash in "point ## lseg" operator for NaN input
  • Avoid possible crash in pg_get_expr()
  • Fix several one-byte buffer over-reads in to_number()
  • Don't needlessly plan query if WITH NO DATA is specified
  • Avoid crash-unsafe state in expensive heap_update() paths
  • Fix hint bit update during WAL replay of row locking operations
  • Avoid unnecessary "could not serialize access" with FOR KEY SHARE
  • Avoid crash in postgres -C when the specified variable is a null string
  • Fix two issues with logical decoding and subtransactions
  • Ensure that backends see up-to-date statistics for shared catalogs
  • Prevent possible failure when vacuuming multixact IDs in an upgraded database
  • When a manual ANALYZE specifies columns, don't reset changes_since_analyze
  • Fix ANALYZE's overestimation of n_distinct for columns with nulls
  • Fix bug in b-tree mark/restore processing
  • Fix building of large (bigger than shared_buffers) hash indexes
  • Prevent infinite loop in GiST index build with NaN values
  • Fix possible crash during a nearest-neighbor indexscan
  • Fix "PANIC: failed to add BRIN tuple" error
  • Prevent possible crash during background worker shutdown
  • Many fixes for issues in parallel pg_dump and pg_restore
  • Make pg_basebackup accept -Z 0 as no compression
  • Make regression tests safe for Danish and Welsh locales

The libpq client library has also been updated to support future two-part PostgreSQL version numbers. This update also contains tzdata release 2016f, with updates for Kemerovo, Novosibirsk, Azerbaijan, Belarus, and Morocco.

EOL Warning for Version 9.1

PostgreSQL version 9.1 will be End-of-Life in September 2016. The project expects to only release one more update for that version. We urge users to start planning an upgrade to a later version of PostgreSQL as soon as possible. See our Versioning Policy for more information.


All PostgreSQL update releases are cumulative. As with other minor releases, users are not required to dump and reload their database or use pg_upgrade in order to apply this update release; you may simply shut down PostgreSQL and update its binaries. Users who have skipped one or more update releases may need to run additional, post-update steps; please see the release notes for earlier versions for details.
