Creating Postgres tablespaces v23

To create Postgres tablespaces during deployment, define their names and locations in postgres_tablespaces under cluster_vars or a particular instance's vars in config.yml.

If you define volumes with volume_for: postgres_tablespace set and a tablespace_name defined, they will be added as default entries to postgres_tablespaces.

      location: /some/path

- Name: example
  - device_name: /dev/xvdh
      volume_for: postgres_tablespace
      tablespace_name: implicit

The example above would create two tablespaces: explicit (at /some/path) and implicit (at /opt/postgres/tablespaces/implicit/tablespace_data by default, unless you specify a different mountpoint for the volume).

Every postgres_tablespace volume must have tablespace_name defined; the tablespace location will be derived from the volume's mountpoint.

Every entry in postgres_tablespaces must specify a tablespace name (as the key) and its location. If you are specifying tablespace locations explicitly, do not put tablespaces inside PGDATA, and do not use any volume mountpoint directly as a tablespace location (lost+found will confuse some tools into thinking the directory is not empty).

By default, the tablespace owner is postgres, but you can set it to any valid username (the users in postgres_users will have been created by this time).

Streaming replicas must have the same postgres_tablespace volumes and postgres_tablespaces setting as their upstream instance

You can set the default tablespace for a database in postgres_databases.
