PG_CRON doesn't work


Hi, I have a RDS instance, I was used to running maintenance sql statements using pg_cron but for some reason it has stopped working and I can't seem to work out why. I no longer can see any activity in cron.job_run_details and my parameters in my RDS instance stay the same. I have also tried the following UPDATE cron.job SET nodename = ''; with no luck. Can anyone please advise?

  • Yes, it was working perfectly until 3 days ago. I shut all sessions on my database (there were farr too many idle connections) using the following code

    SELECT pg_terminate_backend(pid) FROM pg_stat_activity WHERE pid <> pg_backend_pid() AND datname = 'database_name' ;

    From then on, I believe, it stopped working. I don't know if this is what triggered it to not work anymore? Any way to restore it?

  • I don't know enough about the PG engine to tell you, so we'll have to see if others know.
