I'm not sure about pgPool, but pgBouncer (another connection pool) can use SSL by using Stunnel. Check your functional requirements to see if pgBouncer can solve your problem. Maybe pgPool can also use Stunnel, you could give it a try.
The documentation on PITR recovery that comes with pgpool is really incomplete, and downright misleading at points. It suggests keeping all the archive files on the master than then having a recovery_command that uses scp to copy from there to each standby. That's worthless. Each standby needs to have its own copy of the archive, or there's no real ...
Instead of compiling PgPool, why not just install it from package management? yum install postgresql-pgpool-II I don't use CentOS, but that's it's package name in Fedora 17, and the two are usually consistent. Since you're using a PostgreSQL 9.2 installed via Yum on CentOS 5, you're obviously using a 3rd party packaging of PostgreSQL, so you're likely ...
There really isn't enough to go on here. 10 concurrent connections isn't a lot for most setups. The best advice I can give is start simple and when you start to run into cases where performance is starting to become an issue then look at more complex solutions unless you know it will be an issue (say 1000 concurrent users and millions of queries from the ...
In our shop we selected repmgr and pgbouncer instead of pgpool. repmgr has some nice tooling to setup and maintain the cluster of replicated database servers. In our case 1 master and 2 slaves (one failover and one live read performance test that can become the failover of the new master). pgpool has issues with changes in the configuration, in most cases ...
To my knowledge it does not allow that level of parallelism. If that's what you are trying to do the best approach is to go with Postgres-XC or GridSQL, but Postgres-XC while more complex is also more flexible. http://postgres-xc.sourceforge.net/ is the project page.
