Getting started with replication

P: n/a
CSN
Are there any docs that deal with replication and
Postgresql? Intro's, faq's, etc.

Can anybody recommend a Postgresql replication
package? I'm really not familiar with any - seems like
there are several, with possibly Slony rising to the
forefront. Are there any docs that compare the various
options?

Would there be any problems replicating data between
Linux and Windows/Cygwin servers?

Thanks,
CSN

Slony seems to be moving to the head of the pack of
replication solutions. Still too new to say
definitively.

Slony author Jan Wieck has said repeatedly that
replication is used in practice to meet various needs,
and there is no one replication solution that can be
ideal for all of them. For that reason, there is
likely to continue to be a variety of replication
solutions for PostgreSQL, with none of them part of
the core release.

Anyone who would write a guide to replication in
general, with critiques of the available PostgreSQL
solutions, would be doing a great service. But I am
not qualified to do it.

TIP 9: the planner will ignore your desire to choose an index scan if your
joining column's datatypes do not match
