barman-cloud-check-wal-archive - Man Page

Check a WAL archive destination for a new PostgreSQL cluster

3.10.0"

Synopsis

barman-cloud-check-wal-archive [OPTIONS] SOURCE_URL SERVER_NAME

Description

Check that the WAL archive destination for SERVER_NAME is safe to use for a new PostgreSQL cluster. With no optional args (the default) this check will pass if the WAL archive is empty or if the target bucket cannot be found. All other conditions will result in failure.

This script and Barman are administration tools for disaster recovery of PostgreSQL servers written in Python and maintained by EnterpriseDB.

Usage

usage: barman-cloud-check-wal-archive [-V] [--help] [-v | -q] [-t]
                                      [--cloud-provider {aws-s3,azure-blob-storage,google-cloud-storage}]
                                      [--endpoint-url ENDPOINT_URL]
                                      [-P AWS_PROFILE] [--profile AWS_PROFILE]
                                      [--read-timeout READ_TIMEOUT]
                                      [--azure-credential {azure-cli,managed-identity}]
                                      [--timeline TIMELINE]
                                      destination_url server_name

Checks that the WAL archive on the specified cloud storage can be safely used
for a new PostgreSQL server.

positional arguments:
  destination_url       URL of the cloud destination, such as a bucket in AWS
                        S3. For example: `s3://bucket/path/to/folder`.
  server_name           the name of the server as configured in Barman.

optional arguments:
  -V, --version         show program's version number and exit
  --help                show this help message and exit
  -v, --verbose         increase output verbosity (e.g., -vv is more than -v)
  -q, --quiet           decrease output verbosity (e.g., -qq is less than -q)
  -t, --test            Test cloud connectivity and exit
  --cloud-provider {aws-s3,azure-blob-storage,google-cloud-storage}
                        The cloud provider to use as a storage backend
  --timeline TIMELINE   The earliest timeline whose WALs should cause the
                        check to fail

Extra options for the aws-s3 cloud provider:
  --endpoint-url ENDPOINT_URL
                        Override default S3 endpoint URL with the given one
  -P AWS_PROFILE, --aws-profile AWS_PROFILE
                        profile name (e.g. INI section in AWS credentials
                        file)
  --profile AWS_PROFILE
                        profile name (deprecated: replaced by --aws-profile)
  --read-timeout READ_TIMEOUT
                        the time in seconds until a timeout is raised when
                        waiting to read from a connection (defaults to 60
                        seconds)

Extra options for the azure-blob-storage cloud provider:
  --azure-credential {azure-cli,managed-identity}, --credential {azure-cli,managed-identity}
                        Optionally specify the type of credential to use when
                        authenticating with Azure. If omitted then Azure Blob
                        Storage credentials will be obtained from the
                        environment and the default Azure authentication flow
                        will be used for authenticating with all other Azure
                        services. If no credentials can be found in the
                        environment then the default Azure authentication flow
                        will also be used for Azure Blob Storage.
