You could create a new server which has postgres_fdw connections to your
read-only replicas and run the reporting code there.  That could suck,
of course, since the data would have to be pulled across to be
aggregated (assuming that's what your reporting script is doing).

If you can't change the reporting script at all, that might be what you
have to do though.  Be sure to look at the postgres_fdw options about
batch size and how planning is done.

If you can change the reporting script, another option is to create FDWs
on your primary servers with FDW tables that point to some other server
and then have the reporting script use the FDW tables as the temp or
destination tables on the replica.  The magic here is that FDW tables on
a read-only replica *can* be written to, but you have to create the FDW
and the FDW tables on the primary and let them be replicated.

As also mentioned, you could use trigger-based replication (eg: bucardo,
slony, etc) instead of block-based, or you could look at the logical
replication capabilities (pg_logical) to see about using that for your
replica-for-reporting instead.

Thanks!

Stephen
