       pg_isready - check the connection status of a PostgreSQL server


       pg_isready [connection-option...] [option...]


       pg_isready is a utility for checking the connection status of a
       PostgreSQL database server. The exit status specifies the result of the
       connection check.


       -d dbname
           Specifies the name of the database to connect to. The dbname can be
           a connection string. If so, connection string parameters will
           override any conflicting command line options.

       -h hostname
           Specifies the host name of the machine on which the server is
           running. If the value begins with a slash, it is used as the
           directory for the Unix-domain socket.

       -p port
           Specifies the TCP port or the local Unix-domain socket file
           extension on which the server is listening for connections.
           Defaults to the value of the PGPORT environment variable or, if not
           set, to the port specified at compile time, usually 5432.

           Do not display status message. This is useful when scripting.

       -t seconds
           The maximum number of seconds to wait when attempting connection
           before returning that the server is not responding. Setting to 0
           disables. The default is 3 seconds.

       -U username
           Connect to the database as the user username instead of the

           Print the pg_isready version and exit.

           Show help about pg_isready command line arguments, and exit.


       pg_isready returns 0 to the shell if the server is accepting
       connections normally, 1 if the server is rejecting connections (for
       example during startup), 2 if there was no response to the connection
       attempt, and 3 if no attempt was made (for example due to invalid


       pg_isready, like most other PostgreSQL utilities, also uses the
       environment variables supported by libpq (see Section 33.14).

       The environment variable PG_COLOR specifies whether to use color in
       diagnostic messages. Possible values are always, auto and never.


       It is not necessary to supply correct user name, password, or database
       name values to obtain the server status; however, if incorrect values
       are provided, the server will log a failed connection attempt.


       Standard Usage:

           $ pg_isready
           /tmp:5432 - accepting connections
           $ echo $?

       Running with connection parameters to a PostgreSQL cluster in startup:

           $ pg_isready -h localhost -p 5433
           localhost:5433 - rejecting connections
           $ echo $?

       Running with connection parameters to a non-responsive PostgreSQL

           $ pg_isready -h someremotehost
           someremotehost:5432 - no response
           $ echo $?
