SYNOPSIS

barman-wal-archive [OPTIONS] BARMAN_HOST SERVER_NAME WAL_PATH

DESCRIPTION

This script can be used in the archive_command of a PostgreSQL server to ship WAL files to a Barman host using the 'put-wal' command (introduced in Barman 2.6). An SSH connection will be opened to the Barman host. barman-wal-archive allows the integration of Barman in PostgreSQL clusters for better business continuity results.
