PostgreSQL Database configuration ‘log_checkpoints’ should be on


Enabling log_checkpoints helps the PostgreSQL Database to Log each checkpoint which in turn generates query and error logs. However, access to transaction logs is not supported. Query and error logs can be used to identify, troubleshoot, and repair configuration errors and sub-optimal performance.

Remediation Steps

Azure Portal

Azure CLI

  • To enable log_checkpoints:

az postgres server configuration set --resource-group <resourceGroupName> --server-name <serverName> --name log_checkpoints --value on


Example Configuration

resource "azurerm_postgresql_configuration" "example" {
  name  = "log_checkpoints"
  value = "on"
