Extending the Database Archive Pool

In both PostgreSQL continuous archiving and streaming replication, the database archive storage pool is created using LVM. This means that if at any point the pool requires additional disk space, it is possible to increase the pool's size by adding additional disks (or partitions) to the LVM volume group, thereby extending the logical volume in which the database archive resides.

To extend the database archive storage pool:

  1. Using SSH, log in as root to your CTERA Portal primary database server.
  2. Run the following command: portal-storage-util.sh extend_db_archive_pool device
    Where device is the disk you would like to add to the LVM volume group.
    For example: portal-storage-util.sh extend_db_archive_pool sde
