How frequently does the clustered environment backup the production PostgresSQL DB to the failover copy?


  • Tableau Server
  • PostgreSQL


The Coordination Service synchronizes the clustered system continuously and runs as a service on all machines in your distributed environment to keep the failover system in sync with the live system.

If a sync delay is discovered, refer to the Product Help Guide article below which explains how the hardware can effect how well the Coordination Services will operate. 
The cluster controller timeout, which defaults to 5 minutes, can be shortened and then the sync will run more frequently.
