PostgreSQL Database Requirements

PostgreSQL Database Requirements

Use the following guidelines when you set up the repository on PostgreSQL:
  • Verify that the database user account has CREATE TABLE and CREATE VIEW privileges.
  • Ensure that PostgreSQL has sufficient disk space for the data files. By default, the data files are present in the following location:
    <PostgreSQL installation directory>/data
  • On the database, set the configuration parameters.
    The following table lists the minimum and recommended values for the configuration parameters that you must set:
    Parameter
    Minimum Value
    Recommended Value
    max_connections
    200
    4000
    shared_buffers
    2 GB
    16 GB
    max_locks_per_transaction
    1024
    4000
  • To install PostgreSQL database for the PowerCenter repository, set values for the PostgreSQL database host, port, and service name for the
    pg_service.conf
    file in the following format:
    [PCRS_DB_SERVICE_NAME] host=Database host IP port=Database port dbname=PowerCenter Repository Service database service name
    To securely connect to PostgreSQL for the PowerCenter repository, set the
    sslmode
    to
    require
    along with the remaining required database properties in the
    pg_service.conf
    file in the following format:
    sslmode=require
  • Set the PGSERVICEFILE environment variable to the location of the
    pg_service.conf
    file in the Informatica installation directory.
