Postgres libpq library
Postgres pg_basebackup utility program
See Section 4.2.1 for information on SSH and SCP.
Full base backups are taken using the pg_basebackup utility program. In the global section of the BART configuration file, parameter pg_basebackup_path specifies the complete directory path to the pg_basebackup program file to be used by BART for taking full base backups. See Section 4.1 for information on this parameter.
For information on pg_basebackup see the PostgreSQL Core Documentation available at:
Database servers can only be backed up by using pg_basebackup of the same or later version than the database server version. For example, pg_basebackup version 9.5 can back up database server version 9.5, but it cannot be used to back up database server version 9.6.
