   3. Parameters

        3.1. retries (integer)
        3.2. timeout (integer)
        3.3. tcp_keepalive (integer)

   4. Functions

1. Overview

   The module is an implementation of the internal DB API v1 and v2
   connector for PostgreSQL server. It has support for reconnecting when
   the connection is broken.

2. Dependencies

   2.1. Kamailio Modules
   2.2. External Libraries or Applications

2.1. Kamailio Modules

   The following modules must be loaded before this module:
     * No dependencies on other Kamailio modules.

2.2. External Libraries or Applications

   The following libraries or applications must be installed before
   running Kamailio with this module loaded:
     * PostgreSQL library - e.g., libpq5.
     * PostgreSQL devel library - to compile the module (e.g., libpq-dev).

3. Parameters

   3.1. retries (integer)
   3.2. timeout (integer)
   3.3. tcp_keepalive (integer)

3.1. retries (integer)

   How many retries to attept to reconnect if connection to Postgres
   server becomes broken.

   Default value is 2 (that means three attepts to submit the query, first
   will triger the connection error and two more (the value of this
   parameter) after resetting the connection).

   Example 1.1. Set retries parameter
...
modparam("db_postgres", "retries", 3)
...

3.2. timeout (integer)

   Setting this variable to any value larger than zero (which is the
   default value) enables both a connection timeout and a query timeout.
   If a connection attempt or a query takes longer than this many seconds,
   the operation will be aborted and an error will be returned.

   Note that this timeout is applied to each underlying operation (i.e.
   for each connection attempt), so depending on circumstances and on the
   value of the “retries” variable, a single query from the SIP proxy's
   point of view can take longer than the “timeout”.

   Example 1.2. Set timeout parameter
...
modparam("db_postgres", "timeout", 10)
...

3.3. tcp_keepalive (integer)

   Enable the TCP keepalive timer and set the number of seconds the
   connection must be idle before to start sending keepalive packets.
   Defaults to zero, which disables TCP keepalive packets.

   Only supported on platforms which understand and support the
   “TCP_KEEPIDLE” socket option.

   Example 1.3. Set tcp_keepalive parameter
...
modparam("db_postgres", "tcp_keepalive", 600)
...
