--- Reposting with more information ---
In PG9.0-b4 I have successfully set up a primary-secondary pair with
streaming replication, with the secondary in hot_standby mode.
I have an application on the standby (and primary) which has constant
connections open to the database. Occasionally it refreshes its cache of
data from the hot_standby secondary server.
I am intermittently getting and error when updating the application's cache.
The cache update involves 2 queries:
SELECT COUNT(*) FROM core_list; -- this table has about 5 Million records
SELECT line, COUNT(*) FROM core_state WHERE state='normal' GROUP BY line
ORDER BY line; -- this table has about 50million records
normal operation of the database would not update the core_list table, and
would update maybe up to 10% of the core_state table between application
table definitions follow:
CREATE TABLE core_list(
id int NOT NULL DEFAULT nextval('core_list_id_seq'),
name varchar(64) NOT NULL,
valid BOOLEAN NOT NULL DEFAULT '1'
unique index on the first 2 fields, index on the 3rd.
CREATE TABLE core_state(
core_id int NOT NULL,
line smallint NOT NULL,
state core_state NOT NULL
CREATE INDEX cs_core_id_idx ON core_state(core_id);
CREATE INDEX cs_state_line_idx ON core_state(state,line);
CREATE UNIQUE INDEX cs_core_id_line_idx ON core_state(core_id,line)
When I check the PostgreSQL logs with the same timestamp, I see the
FATAL: terminating connection due to conflict with recovery
DETAIL: User query might have needed to see row versions that must be
HINT: In a moment you should be able to reconnect to the database and repeat
Now, this message explains that there is a problem, but I couldn't find
anything in the streaming replication/hot standby documentation indicating
that this sort of thing might occur.
Is there any way to avoid it? Any further information about this specific
problem? Can I provide anything else?
Thanks in advance,
