I believe comments in the recovery.conf.sample are somehow confusing
about standby and SR:
# Edit this file to provide the parameters that PostgreSQL needs to
# perform an archive recovery of a database, or to act as a log-streaming
# replication standby.
It seems incomplete. It doesn't recover OR act as a log-streaming
replication standby. It can behave as a standby node without SR as well.
# When standby_mode is enabled, the PostgreSQL server will work as
# a standby. It tries to connect to the primary according to the
# connection settings primary_conninfo, and receives XLOG records
This one is quite unclear as well. We might think that once we are in
standby_mode we will be in SR. Again, we can use the standby_mode
without primary_conninfo. This parameter only allows to keep the cluster
in recovery, it doesn't imply to set up the SR.
# By default, a standby server keeps streaming XLOG records from the
# primary indefinitely.
Please, find in attachment a proposal of rewording.
