EDB Postgres Ark Notifications

EDB Ark will send e-mail notifications when:

  • The state of a monitored database cluster changes.
  • An administrative action is performed on a cluster
  • User information changes.

Please note: For EDB Ark notifications to function properly, you must have an SMTP server running on each node, and provide contact email addresses for the Ark administrator and Ark user.

Load Balancer Port Error The MASTER /REPLICA database server dns_name in cluster cluster_name in location availability_zone is reporting an error determining the load balancer port.
Load Balancer Port Notification The MASTER /REPLICA database server dns_name in cluster cluster_name is now RUNNING /STARTING /STOPPED /WARNING /UNKNOWN in location availability_zone using port port_number.
Continuous Archiving State Changed to db_state Continuous Archiving on the master/replica database server dns_name in cluster cluster_name is operating normally.
Continuous Archiving State Changed to db_state A problem was detected with continuous archiving on the master/replica database server dns_name in cluster cluster_name.
Data Storage Scaling cluster_name Data storage is being added to cluster cluster_name because the auto-scaling threshold was reached.
Data storage scaling for cluster cluster_name has been suspended Data storage scaling for cluster cluster_name has been suspended. Instance instance_id no assignable device names left
Rebuild of primary node in cluster cluster_name The primary server, node id instance_id in cluster cluster_name is being rebuilt.
Replacement of primary node in cluster cluster_name The primary server, node id instance_id in cluster cluster_name is being replaced with node id instance_id.
Rebuild of replica node in cluster cluster_name The replica server, node id instance_id in cluster cluster_name is being rebuilt.
Replica promotion failed in cluster cluster_name Replica promotion failed. Performing rebuild of primary DB node; id: instance_id
Replica promotion failed in cluster cluster_name Replica promotion failed. Node id: instance_id
WARNING: Connectivity Issue with instance region/instance_id WARNING: The EDB Ark cluster manager was unable to connect to the node manager for instance ID region/instance_id. This may be due to a temporary connectivity issue or the instance may require manual intervention.
(PITR) Base Backup of cluster cluster_name failed The automatic|manual backup of cluster cluster_name in location availability_zone failed.
Backup of cluster cluster_name failed The automatic|manual backup of cluster cluster_name in location availability_zone failed.
WAL Archive Storage Container Created A storage container (bucket) named bucket_name has been created. All EDB Ark clusters configured for Continuous Archiving (Point-in-Time Recovery) will use this location to store archived WAL files. This container should not be deleted once created as it will cause WAL archiving to stop functioning.
Termination of cluster cluster_name completed. The termination of cluster cluster_name has completed.
WARNING: Termination Protection instance_id. The system was not able to terminate instance {0} in cluster cluster_name because termination protection is enabled. You must disable termination protection before this instance can be terminated.
OS/SW update PASSED on node instance_id. Yum update results for node: dns_name Yum exit status: exit_status You may also consult the yum log on the node (usually in /var/log/yum.log) If there were any errors, you will have to log into the node and manually correct them and/or consult with your EDB Ark Admin.
OS/SW update FAILED on node instance_id. Yum update results for node: dns_name Yum exit status: exit_status You may also consult the yum log on the node (usually in /var/log/yum.log) If there were any errors, you will have to log into the node and manually correct them and/or consult with your EDB Ark Admin.
OS/SW Status is now: status The OS/SW status on node dns_name of cluster cluster_name is now CRITICAL. This indicates that the node has at least one outstanding security update and possibly other non-critical updates available. Please log into the EDB Ark console and perform a cluster upgrade.
OS/SW Status is now: status The OS/SW status on node dns_name of cluster cluster_name is now UNKNOWN. This indicates that the node is having difficulty determining the OS/SW status. This may be a temporary issue that will resolve itself. Please log into the EDB Ark console and check your clusters status. If it is still showing status UNKNOWN then you will need to log into node dns_name and run “yum –security check-update” to diagnose the issue manually.
Unable to delete Security Group group_name The system was not able to delete the Security Group named group_name in cluster cluster_name. This could be because one or more instances in the cluster could not be terminated. This Security Group will need to be manually deleted from the provider’s management console.
Volume attachment failed in cluster cluster_name The message body contains error text directly from the server.
Ark Synchronization Error With PEM Server The Ark console has encountered an error while attempting to synchronize with the PEM server: exception_information Ark console: https: console_address PEM dashboard: https://pem_console_address/pem/browser/ Full Error Details: details
Reboot of cluster cluster_name in progress OS/SW update completed successfully, rebooting all cluster nodes.
