Upgrade PostgreSQL

This section explains how to upgrade a PostgreSQL instance when it is monitored by a Temboard agent.

To upgrade to PostgreSQL instance hosting the repository database, please go to the Server Upgrade section.

Minor upgrade

PostgreSQL minor upgrades ( e.g. from 10.3 to 10.4) are very important but they include only backward-compatible changes.

Therefore, you can simply upgrade your instance using the usual update process, depending on which distribution you are using.

Major upgrade

PostgreSQL major upgrades ( e.g. from 13 to 14 ) will bring new features and improvements.

If you choose to migrate that your data from your current instance to a new one listening to another port ( or on another host), then you can simply add a temboard-agent to this new instance. However you will lose the history of the former one.

If you choose the "in-place upgrade", you can keep the same agent. Just edit the "instance properties" in the /settings/instances section of the server in order to refresh the agent introspection of the Postgres instance.
