yum update for postgresql rpms

Haas, Scott
RHEL 7.9
PostgreSQL 12 (12.5.1 to 12.6.1)

I am updating RPMs for postgres and was interested to know whether this is indeed expected behavior for the rpm update:

When the "yum update" is executed, postgresql rpms are updated.  It looks at that point, postgresql (postmaster) processes automatically restart.  In the procedure I was building, I figured I'd need to stop/start postgres (systemctl stop postgresql-12, systemctl start postgresql-12), but that doesn't look to be necessary.

I don't recall this automatic postmaster restart occurring a few weeks ago when I went from 12.4.1 to 12.5.1 - perhaps it did, but I just stopped/re-started postgres unnecessarily.


Thanks,
Scott

Tickling this thread to see if I can get a confirmation of the described behavior for rpm update via yum.


I do not want to cross-post (but if this is not the correct forum, please let me know).


Thanks,
Scott

It's standard procedure for package managers to stop daemons before update and then start them back up afterward.

That is the behaviour since 15 years :)
