Chapter 4. Setting Up Asynchronous Replication
After performing our first PITR, we are ready to work on a real replication setup. In this chapter, you will learn how to set up asynchronous replication and streaming. The goal is to make sure that you can achieve higher availability and higher data security.
In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:
- Configuring asynchronous replication
- Understanding streaming
- Combining streaming and archives
- Managing timelines
At the end of this chapter, you will be able to easily set up streaming replication in a couple of minutes.
Setting up streaming replication
In the previous chapter, we recovered data from simple 16 MB XLOG files. Logically, the replay process can only replay 16 MB at a time. This can lead ...
