Container Based Postgres HA Cluster
Full Description

Governor: A Template for PostgreSQL HA with etcd

Docker based Postgres Cluster: Streaming Replication with automatic setup out of the box, batteries included.

Automatic Failover. Zero Downtime Upgrades. Configurable via ENV variables, with etcd cluster for master election as external service. Production ready, stable, and fully dev-ops approved.

This is a fork of https://github.com/compose/governor with a few improvements to make it cluster safe and production ready.

USAGE

Set up three docker hosts,

  • server1: 192.168.42.1
  • server2: 192.168.42.2
  • server3: 192.168.42.3

Let's run a single etcd node for now:

docker -H tcp://server1:2375 run -d --name etcd1 --net host coreos/etcd -addr 192.168.42.1:4001 -peer-addr 192.168.42.1:4002

Now let's run up three governor nodes:

docker -H tcp://server1:2375 run -d --name pg1 --net host \
  -e GOVERNOR_ETCD_HOST=192.168.42.1:4001 \
  -e GOVERNOR_POSTGRESQL_NAME=postgresql1 \
  -e GOVERNOR_POSTGRESQL_LISTEN=192.168.42.1:5432 \
  -e GOVERNOR_POSTGRESQL_DATA_DIR=/data/postgres \
  -e GOVERNOR_POSTGRESQL_REPLICATION_NETWORK=192.168.42.1/24 miketonks/governor

  docker -H tcp://server2:2375 run -d --name pg2 --net host \
    -e GOVERNOR_ETCD_HOST=192.168.42.1:4001 \
    -e GOVERNOR_POSTGRESQL_NAME=postgresql2 \
    -e GOVERNOR_POSTGRESQL_LISTEN=192.168.42.2:5432 \
    -e GOVERNOR_POSTGRESQL_DATA_DIR=/data/postgres \
    -e GOVERNOR_POSTGRESQL_REPLICATION_NETWORK=192.168.42.1/24 miketonks/governor

    docker -H tcp://server3:2375 run -d --name pg3 --net host \
      -e GOVERNOR_ETCD_HOST=192.168.42.1:4001 \
      -e GOVERNOR_POSTGRESQL_NAME=postgresql3 \
      -e GOVERNOR_POSTGRESQL_LISTEN=192.168.42.3:5432 \
      -e GOVERNOR_POSTGRESQL_DATA_DIR=/data/postgres \
      -e GOVERNOR_POSTGRESQL_REPLICATION_NETWORK=192.168.42.1/24 miketonks/governor

The first node started will assume master role, and the other two will become slaves.

$docker logs pg1

Now kill the pg1 node and you will see, after a short while, that pg2 (or pg3) automatically reconfigures and takes over as primary

Bring pg1 back online and it will rejoin the cluster as a slave.
