Version 1.2.1 of Barman, Backup and Recovery Manager for PostgreSQL, has been released, introducing bandwidth limitation for both backup and recovery operations at three different levels: global, server (PostgreSQL instance) and tablespace.
This feature gives database administrators finer control on periodical activities, reducing the impact of these operations on live systems.
