Check out the
SO_KEEPALIVE option for the socket.
I am not sure there is a safe way to do this with the PGconn handle, but
looking at the header there is an internal struct
pg_conn you can look at include/postgresql/internal/libpq-int.h
And the socket file handle is the sock member.
By default, keepalive only kicks in after 2 hours, but you can change it
to some time less than you firewall times out.
Check out the man pages for:
You might end up with something like this:
int one = 1, idle = 500, intvl = 500, cnt = 3;
conn = PQconnectdb(conninfo);
setsockopt(conn->sock, SOL_SOCKET, SO_KEEPALIVE, &one, sizeof(one));
setsockopt(conn->sock, SOL_TCP, TCP_KEEPIDLE, &idle, sizeof(idle));
setsockopt(conn->sock, SOL_TCP, TCP_KEEPINTVL, &intvl, sizeof(intvl));
setsockopt(conn->sock, SOL_TCP, TCP_KEEPCNT, &cnt, sizeof(cnt));
The code will not be particularly portable. You would be better off
increasing the timeout on the firewall, or ensuring there was some
activity before the timeout.
