PostgreSQL is an excellent general-purpose SQL database.

Example locators

dbcrossbar supports standard PostgreSQL locators followed by #table_name:

  • postgres://postgres:$PASSWORD@

Note that PostgreSQL sources will currently output all data as a single stream. This can be split into multiple streams using the --stream-size option if desired.

Configuration & authentication

Authentication is currently handled using standard postgres://user:pass@... syntax, similar to psql. We may add alternative mechanisms at some point to avoid passing credentials on the command-line.
