For each Pgpool-II operation mode, there are sample configurations.
Table 3-1. pgpool.conf samples
|Operation mode||Configuration file name|
|Streaming replication mode||pgpool.conf.sample-stream|
|Master slave mode||pgpool.conf.sample-master-slave|
|Logical replication mode||pgpool.conf.sample-logical|
These configuration files are located at /usr/local/etc with default installation from source code. You can copy one of them as pgpool.conf. (probably you need root privilege for this)
# cd /usr/local/etc # cp pgpool.conf.sample-stream pgpool.conf
