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.

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 Balance'''
+
* '''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.
 +
 
 +
* '''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

=== 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.

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 3.2 =
+
=== Pgpool-II 4.2 beta1 released (2020/10/27) ===
  
Pgpool-II 3.2 is the latest stable version released in Aug 2012.
+
Pgpool-II 4.2 beta1 is now released.  
  
== On Memory Query Cache ==
+
Note that this is not a stable version but just for developers.
  
* '''New fast query cache !'''
+
V4.2 contains new features and enhancements, including:
: On memory query cache is faster because cache storage is on memory. Moreover you don't need to restart pgpool-II when the cache is outdated because the underlying table gets updated.
 
: On memory cache saves pair of SELECT statements (with its Bind parameters if the SELECT is an extended query). If the same SELECTs comes in, it returns the value from cache. Since no SQL parsing nor access to PostgreSQL are involed, it's extremely fast.
 
  
* '''Choosing cache storage'''
+
* Some items in the configuration file pgpool.conf are vastly enhanced for easier configuration and administration.
: You can choose a cache storage: shared memory or memcached (you can't use the both).
 
: Query cache with shared memory is fast and easy because you don't have to install and config memcached, but restricted the max size of cache by the one of shared memory. Query cache with memcached needs a overhead to access network, but you can set the size as you like.
 
  
== Watchdog ==
+
* Implement logging_collector for easier log management.
  
"Watchdog" is a sub process of pgpool-II aiming for adding high availability feature to it. Features added by watchdog include:
+
* Implement log_disconnections to collect disconnection logs.
  
* '''Life checking of pgpool service'''
+
* Implement pg_enc and pg_md5 to allow to register multiple passwords at once.
: Watchdog monitors responses of pgpool service rather than process. It sends queries to PostgreSQL via pgpool which is being monitored by watchdog and watchdog checks the response.
 
: Also watchdog monitors connections to up stream servers (application servers etc.) from the pgpool.
 
: The connection between the up stream servers and the pgpool is monitored as service of pgpool.
 
  
* '''Mutually monitoring of watchdog processes'''
+
* Allow to show statistics of health check by using SHOW POOL_HEALTH_CHECK_STATS command, and also allow to show statistics of issued SQL by using SHOW POOL_BACKEND_STATS command.
: Watchdog processes exchange information on the monitored servers to keep the information up to date, and to allow watchdog processes to mutually monitor each other.
 
  
* '''Changing active/standby state in case of certain faults detected'''
+
* New PCP command pcp_reload_config is added.
: When a fault is detected in the pgpool service, watchdog notifies the other watchdogs of it. Watchdogs decide the new active pgpool if previous active pgpool is broken by voting and change active/standby state.
 
  
* '''Automatic virtual IP address assigning synchronous to server switching'''
+
* Now it is possible to omit write_function_list and read_only_function_list by looking at system catalog information.
: When a standby pgpool server promotes to active, the new active server brings up virtual IP interface. Meanwhile, the previous active server brings down the virtual IP interface.
 
: This enables the active pgpool to work using the same IP address even when servers is switched over.
 
  
* '''Automatic registration of a server as standby in recovery'''
+
* Add new clustering mode snapshot_isolation_mode which guarantees not only data modifications to multiple PostgreSQL but read consistency.
: When broken server recovers or new server is attached, the watchdog process notifies the other watchdog process along with information of the new server, and the watchdog process receives information on the active server and other servers. Then, the attached server is registered as standby.
 
  
= What's new (Stable) =
+
* Support LDAP authentication between clients and Pgpool-II.
  
 +
* Add ssl_crl_file and ssl_passphrase_command to SSL configuration.
  
== pgpool-II 3.2.3 officially released (2013/02/18) ==
+
* Import PostgreSQL 13's SQL parser.  
  
Theese are the latest stable versions of 3.2 whici is the latest major version. Main purpose of this release is to fix fatal problem with pgpool-II 3.2.2's health checking.

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.

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.
