pg_autoctl enable secondary ā€” pg_autoctl enable secondary

pg_autoctl enable secondary ā€” Enable secondary nodes on a formation


This feature makes the most sense when using the Enterprise Edition of pg_auto_failover, which is fully compatible with Citus formations. When secondary are enabled, then Citus workers creation policy is to assign a primary node then a standby node for each group. When secondary is disabled the Citus workers creation policy is to assign only the primary nodes.
