pg_probackup is a utility to manage backup and recovery of PostgreSQL database cluster. It is designed to perform periodic full and incremental page-level backups of the PostgreSQL instance that enable you to restore the server in case of a failure.

New features:

  • --force flag for restore in incremental mode now allows to overwrite the contents of the directory specified by PGDATA in case of system ID mismatch.


  • SIGPIPE signal is now handled. Reported by Yuri Kurenkov.
  • Error conditions encountered by remote agent are now reported correctly. Reported by Yuri Kurenkov.
  • It is now possible to start taking more than one backup a second. Previously this caused an error. Reported by Daria Lepikhova.
  • Waiting for Start LSN now happens after the parent backup is chosen, which allows us to error out earlier if there is no suitable parent.
