: There is a limit on the maximum number of concurrent connections with PostgreSQL, and connections are rejected after this many connections. Setting the maximum number of connections, however, increases resource consumption and affect system performance. pgpool-II also has a limit on the maximum number of connections, but extra connections will be queued instead of returning an error immediately.

* '''Watchdog'''
 +
: Watchdog can coordinate multiple Pgpool-II, create a robust cluster system and avoid the single point of failure or split brain. Watchdog can perform lifecheck against other pgpool-II nodes, to detect a fault of Pgpoll-II. If active Pgpool-II goes down, standby Pgpool-II can be promoted to active, and take over Virtual IP.

 +
* '''In Memory Query Cache'''
 +
: In memory query cache allows to save a pair of SELECT statement and its result. If an identical SELECTs comes in, Pgpool-II returns the value from cache. Since no SQL parsing nor access to PostgreSQL are involved, using in memory cache is extremely fast. On the other hand, it might be slower than the normal path in some cases, because it adds some overhead of storing cache data.

Pgpool-II speaks PostgreSQL's backend and frontend protocol, and relays messages between a backend and a frontend. Therefore, a database application (frontend) thinks that Pgpool-II is the actual PostgreSQL server, and the server (backend) sees Pgpool-II as one of its clients.

=== pgpoolAdmin 4.0.1 officially released (2018/12/20) ===
 +
 +
PgPool Global Development Group has released a Security Update of pgpoolAdmin.
 +
 +
The purpose of this release is to address CVE-2018-16203, which
 +
allow an attacker to login without properly checking the authorization.
 +
Once getting into gpoolAdmin, the attacker can control Pgpool-II.
 +
Also it may be possible to obtain the superuser role of a PostgreSQL database.
 +
 +
This vulnability affects all versions of pgpoolAdmin. We recommend
 +
upgrade pgpoolAdmin to 4.0.1 immediately (remember that PgpoolAdmin
 +
4.0.1 is compatible with Pgpool-II 3.4 or later).
 +
 +
PgPool Global Development Group would like to thank Fotios Rogkotis
 +
of DarkMatter for finding the security issue and giving us the
 +
detailed studies on it.

Welcome to Pgpool Wiki!

What is Pgpool-II?

Pgpool-II is a middleware that works between PostgreSQL servers and a PostgreSQL database client. It is licensed under BSD license. It provides the following features.

  • Connection Pooling
Pgpool-II saves connections to the PostgreSQL servers, and reuse them whenever a new connection with the same properties (i.e. username, database, protocol version) comes in. It reduces connection overhead, and improves system's overall throughput.
  • Replication
Pgpool-II can manage multiple PostgreSQL servers. Using the replication function enables creating a realtime backup on 2 or more physical disks, so that the service can continue without stopping servers in case of a disk failure.
  • Load Balancing
If a database is replicated, executing a SELECT query on any server will return the same result. Pgpool-II takes an advantage of the replication feature to reduce the load on each PostgreSQL server by distributing SELECT queries among multiple servers, improving system's overall throughput. At best, performance improves proportionally to the number of PostgreSQL servers. Load balance works best in a situation where there are a lot of users executing many queries at the same time.
  • Limiting Exceeding Connections
There is a limit on the maximum number of concurrent connections with PostgreSQL, and connections are rejected after this many connections. Setting the maximum number of connections, however, increases resource consumption and affect system performance. pgpool-II also has a limit on the maximum number of connections, but extra connections will be queued instead of returning an error immediately.
  • Watchdog
Watchdog can coordinate multiple Pgpool-II, create a robust cluster system and avoid the single point of failure or split brain. Watchdog can perform lifecheck against other pgpool-II nodes, to detect a fault of Pgpoll-II. If active Pgpool-II goes down, standby Pgpool-II can be promoted to active, and take over Virtual IP.
  • In Memory Query Cache
In memory query cache allows to save a pair of SELECT statement and its result. If an identical SELECTs comes in, Pgpool-II returns the value from cache. Since no SQL parsing nor access to PostgreSQL are involved, using in memory cache is extremely fast. On the other hand, it might be slower than the normal path in some cases, because it adds some overhead of storing cache data.

Pgpool-II speaks PostgreSQL's backend and frontend protocol, and relays messages between a backend and a frontend. Therefore, a database application (frontend) thinks that Pgpool-II is the actual PostgreSQL server, and the server (backend) sees Pgpool-II as one of its clients. Because Pgpool-II is transparent to both the server and the client, an existing database application can be used with Pgpool-II almost without a

Pgpool-II talks PostgreSQL's backend and frontend protocol, and relays a connection between them. Therefore, a database application (frontend) thinks that Pgpool-II is the actual PostgreSQL server, and the server (backend) sees Pgpool-II as one of its clients. Because Pgpool-II is transparent to both the server and the client, an existing database application can be used with Pgpool-II almost without a change to its sources.

pgpoolAdmin 4.0.1 officially released (2018/12/20)

PgPool Global Development Group has released a Security Update of pgpoolAdmin.

The purpose of this release is to address CVE-2018-16203, which allow an attacker to login without properly checking the authorization. Once getting into gpoolAdmin, the attacker can control Pgpool-II. Also it may be possible to obtain the superuser role of a PostgreSQL database.

This vulnability affects all versions of pgpoolAdmin. We recommend upgrade pgpoolAdmin to 4.0.1 immediately (remember that PgpoolAdmin 4.0.1 is compatible with Pgpool-II 3.4 or later).

PgPool Global Development Group would like to thank Fotios Rogkotis of DarkMatter for finding the security issue and giving us the detailed studies on it.
