1 Introduction : 1.1 What’s New

The following changes have been made to EDB Postgres Failover Manager to create version 3.1:
Failover Manager has additional syntax for the efm promote command that allows more granular control of switchover; for details, see Section 5.3.
The Failover Manager property file now includes the lock.dir property; the property specifies the location of a lock file that is used to prevent starting multiple agents for the same cluster. For more information, see Section 3.4.1.
The efm upgrade-conf utility now provides syntax that supports those users whose clusters reside on non-sudo hosts; for more information, see 5.3.
The Failover Manager property file now includes the stop.failed.master property; the property instructs Failover Manager to attempt to stop a failed master database that can no longer be reached. For more information, see Section 3.4.1.
The Failover Manager property file now includes the stable.nodes.file property. The property controls Failover Manager behavior related to the .nodes file (when new nodes join or leave the cluster). For more information, see Section 3.4.1.
The Failover Manager property file now includes the notification.level property; the property allows you to limit the type of notifications sent. For more information, see Section 3.4.1.
The content of the cluster-status report and cluster-status-json report has been updated to include information about VIP addresses. For detailed information about the changes, see Sections 4.2.1 and 5.3.
