PgBouncer depends on few things to get compiled:
When dependencies are installed just run:
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-libevent=libevent-prefix $ make $ make install
If you are building from Git, or are building for Windows, please see separate build instructions below.
Starting from PgBouncer 1.4, it does hostname lookups at connect time instead just once at config load time. This requires proper async DNS implementation. Following list shows supported backends and their probing order:
|backend||parallel||EDNS0 (1)||/etc/hosts||SOA lookup (2)|
|c-ares||yes||yes||yes||yes||ipv6+CNAME buggy in <=1.10|
|evdns, libevent 2.x||yes||no||yes||no||does not check /etc/hosts updates|
|getaddrinfo_a, glibc 2.9+||yes||yes (3)||yes||no||N/A on non-linux|
|getaddrinfo, libc||no||yes (3)||yes||no||N/A on win32, requires pthreads|
|evdns, libevent 1.x||yes||no||no||no||buggy|
./configure also has flags –enable-evdns and –disable-evdns which turn off automatic probing and force use of either evdns or getaddrinfo_a().
To enable PAM authorization ./configure has a flag –with-pam (default value is no). When compiled with PAM support new global authorization type pam appears which can be used to validate users through PAM.
Building PgBouncer from Git requires that you fetch libusual submodule and generate the header and config files before you can run configure:
$ git clone https://github.com/pgbouncer/pgbouncer.git $ cd pgbouncer $ git submodule init $ git submodule update $ ./autogen.sh $ ./configure ... $ make $ make install
Additional packages required: autoconf, automake, libtool, python-docutils
At the moment only build env tested is MINGW32 / MSYS. Cygwin and Visual $ANYTHING are untested. Libevent 2.x is required for DNS hostname lookup.
Then do the usual:
$ ./configure ... $ make
If cross-compiling from Unix:
$ ./configure --host=i586-mingw32msvc ...
Running from command-line goes as usual, except -d (daemonize), -R (reboot) and -u (switch user) switches will not work.
To run pgbouncer as a Windows service, you need to configure service_name parameter to set name for service. Then:
$ pgbouncer -regservice config.ini
To uninstall service:
$ pgbouncer -unregservice config.ini
To use Windows Event Log, set “syslog = 1” in config file. But before you need to register pgbevent.dll:
$ regsvr32 pgbevent.dll
To unregister it, do:
$ regsvr32 /u pgbevent.dll
