I have a "large" PostgreSQL (9.6 with timescale plugin) database (about 1Tb). And would like to migrate it to a Linux machine. The naive approach would be pg_dump and pg_restore. (Not sure how long that might take on a powerful machine with SSD on both sides, maybe you have an idea?)
Just wanted to ask if this is the way to go or if there might be a better more convenient solution. What I saw so far were pgBackRestore and barman.
I'm asking this question since I already had some trouble migrating a MongoDB database which took really very long. So now I would like to avoid errors : )
Thanks a lot for any hint!
