Thanks. I guess I should look for pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user root

Awesome, thanks! I didn't realize that basic iptables was "stateful". How can I use iptables to rate limit (including bursting, etc.)?

Aha, thanks Taylor.

Thanks Taylor, but I don't have a router - we only need to use one server at at time (the other is just for failover), so we don't need a router or load balancer, etc., right? How does me not having a router affect your suggestion? What should I do differently, having only a firewall? Note, I do have 2 switches though.

@fukawi2 the later is true (active / backup) and failure of will be performed manually (for now, some day we'll set up automatic failover)

Thanks, I'll do that, at least for initial testing purposes.

Ah, thanks. Is there a common pattern that's used to prevent problems like this, such as manually assigning numeric IDs to users upon creation, or something else? I would hate for this to accidentally work just because I happened to create the users in the same order or something to that effect.

Thanks. BTW, what happens if I touch the trigger file in the slave machine when the master is still fine and dandy? Does a Postgres master know how to yield control like that or does the slave just know how to become a master and everything else is up to you?
