The repmgr open-source tool suite is part of the embedded PostgreSQL database of the vCloud Director appliance. You can use repmgr to configure, monitor, and control PostgreSQL replication and database failover in your vCloud Director database high availability cluster.

You can use the repmgr command-line interface to check the status and events of a node or a cluster, to register or unregister a node, to promote a standby node, to swap the roles of a primary and a standby, or to follow a new primary node.
