B94: Consistent recovery state reached

Category: Standby Server Events
Urgency: low

Example Postgres Log Output:

LOG: consistent recovery state reached at 4E8/9E0979A8


When a standby server first starts up it needs to read the WAL stream until the first checkpoint it can use, which contains the necessary consistency data to allow Hot Standby connections and query execution.

Note that this may be delayed more than the first checkpoint if you have very long-lived transactions on the primary.

Before this point is reached, any client trying to connect will receive an error message indicating that the server is not ready yet.

Recommended Action:

No action needed, this merely serves as information for when connections can be accepted on a hot standby / follower server.
