Also it includes a generic queuing mechanism PgQ and utility library for Python scripts. == Overview == It contains following tools: === PgQ === This is the queue machanism we use. Consists of PL/pgsql, and C code in database, with Python framework on top of it. It is based on snapshot based event handling ideas from Slony-I, written for general usage. Features: - There can be several queues in database. - There can be several producers than can insert into any queue. - There can be several consumers on one queue and all consumers see all events. Documentation: - PgQ admin tool (pgqadm) usage: doc/pgq-admin.txt - PgQ SQL API overview: doc/pgq-sql.txt - PgQ SQL reference: http://skytools.projects.postgresql.org/pgq/ === Londiste === Replication tool written in Python, using PgQ as event transport. Features: - Tables can be added one-by-one into set. - Initial COPY for one table does not block event replay for other tables. - Can compare tables on both sides. Documentation: - Londiste script usage: doc/londiste.cmdline.txt (also available as `man 1 londiste`) - Londiste configuration: doc/londiste.config.txt (also available as `man 5 londiste`) - Londiste reference: doc/londiste.ref.txt === walmgr === This script will setup WAL archiving, does initial backup and runtime WAL archive and restore.
