===== Introduction =====
PAF is a new PostgreSQL resource agent for Pacemaker. Its original aim is to
keep it clear between the Pacemaker administration and the PostgreSQL one, to
keep things simple, documented and yet powerful.
PAF has very few parameters to setup and very few requirements:
* setting up streaming replication by yourself
* requires "application_name=$hostname" in primary_conninfo
* requires "recovery_target_timeline = 'latest'"
* requires "standby_mode = on"
It deals with the start/stop order of PostgreSQL clusters in the replication
cluster, the failover obviously, the switchover, the role swapping between the
master and one of its slaves, etc.
