To reduce the read load on base backups, they are sent through the
tool ``mbuffer`` first. To use this rate-limited-read mode, use the
option --cluster-read-rate-limit as seen in ``wal-e backup-push``.
-* WAL-E is expanding. The lack of a testing strategy is starting to
- hurt more.
-* WAL-E is expanding. A README is starting to get unwieldy. A proper
- Sphinx manual should be written soon
-* Retry logic can use a lot of help.
-* Investigate pg_lesslog. This tool strips the WAL file of full-page
- binary images, making it *much* smaller, but this also makes the
- recovery process more expensive (has to do more seeking to do
- recovery). The question is: is the increased speed of fetching a
- WAL segment dominated by recovery time, or vice-versa?
-* Ask pgsql-hackers about a pg_cancel_backup() function
-* Sane error messages, such as on Ctrl-C or during errors.
-* Pipeline-WAL-Segment Management: S3 ACK is long enough that a
- totally non-pipelined, non-parallel archive_command can fall behind.
-* Eliminate copy-pasta in formatting URLs for getting/putting things
-* do_lzop_s3_get do_lzop_s3_push, do_partition_put, do_partition_get
- should probably share more code, since they take common arguments.
-* Verify Tar paths instead of using tarfile.extractall()
-* For small databases, the --cluster-rate-limit feature will
- over-restrict the amount of disk bandwidth used: the number provided
- by the user is divided by the number of processes that can
- theoretically send data, but for small databases only one process
- will ever be scheduled, so the result is the actual limit may be
- only (limit / pool-size) -- much smaller than indicated. Fix this
- by increasing the rate limit when there are few processes that are
- scheduled to run.
