Reply To: Log-based or trigger-based database capture?


Hello CA, starting in HVR 5.3.0, we now support log-based capture from PostgreSQL RDS using a SQL interface.  At a high level, the machine running HVR must install the client software to connect to the database (i.e. PostgreSQL client). Then in HVR the “Location Configuration” i.e. the connection to the database is defined differently. Action Capture would use /LogReadMethod=SQL, and everything else is the same.

Note for PostgreSQL we must have the decoding plugin installed (this is available in the open source community).

Details are included in our installation instructions:
