Pgpool-II is a middleware that works between PostgreSQL servers and a PostgreSQL database client. It is distributed under a license similar to BSD and MIT. It provides the following features.
  
 
* '''Connection Pooling'''
 
* '''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'''
 
* '''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'''
 
* '''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'''
 
* '''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.

* '''Parallel Query'''
+
* '''Watchdog'''
: Using the parallel query function, data can be divided among the multiple servers, so that a query can be executed on all the servers concurrently to reduce the overall execution time. Parallel query works the best when searching large-scale data.
+
: 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.  
  
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.
+
* '''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 4.4.0 released (2022/12/06) ===
 +
 +
Pgpool-II 4.4.0 is now released. This is the first stable release of Pgpool-II 4.4.x.
 +
 +
V4.4 contains new features and enhancements, including:
 +
 +
* Add new dynamic spare process management feature. This feature allows selecting between static and dynamic process management modes.
 +
 +
* Allow to specify replication delay by time in streaming replication mode. For this purpose new parameter delay_threshold_by_time is introduced.
 +
 +
* As PostgreSQL already does, Pgpool-II now supports unix_socket_directories, unix_socket_group and unix_socket_permissions for more flexible and precise control of UNIX domain sockets.
 +
 +
* Allow to use comma separated multiple listen addresses in listen_addresses and pcp_listen_addresses. They control which interfaces accept connection attempts, which can help prevent repeated malicious connection requests on insecure network interfaces.
 +
 +
* Allow to customize the command used by trusted_servers for checking upstream connection. For this purpose new parameter trusted_server_command is introduced.
 +
 +
* Import PostgreSQL 15's SQL parser.
 +
 +
* Speed up query cache by reducing lock contention. This allows concurrent running clients to fetch cache contents much more quicker.

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 distributed under a license similar to BSD and MIT. 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.

Pgpool-II 4.4.0 released (2022/12/06)

Pgpool-II 4.4.0 is now released. This is the first stable release of Pgpool-II 4.4.x.

V4.4 contains new features and enhancements, including:

  • Add new dynamic spare process management feature. This feature allows selecting between static and dynamic process management modes.
  • Allow to specify replication delay by time in streaming replication mode. For this purpose new parameter delay_threshold_by_time is introduced.
  • As PostgreSQL already does, Pgpool-II now supports unix_socket_directories, unix_socket_group and unix_socket_permissions for more flexible and precise control of UNIX domain sockets.
  • Allow to use comma separated multiple listen addresses in listen_addresses and pcp_listen_addresses. They control which interfaces accept connection attempts, which can help prevent repeated malicious connection requests on insecure network interfaces.
  • Allow to customize the command used by trusted_servers for checking upstream connection. For this purpose new parameter trusted_server_command is introduced.
  • Import PostgreSQL 15's SQL parser.
  • Speed up query cache by reducing lock contention. This allows concurrent running clients to fetch cache contents much more quicker.
