[pgpool-general: 6253] Role & Privileges for Health Check User !

Hi All,

Just wanted to obtain clarification on the kind of ROLES & PRIVILEGES for the 

1. sr_check_user
2. health_check_user 

We need to define these 2 users in pgpool.conf when using PgPool II in Master/Slave Streaming Mode.

I wanted to know what kind of user with what kind of different privileges should I create in my PostgreSQL Servers for enabling PgPool for proper functioning.

The sr_check_user uses which tables/functions/views for its functioning ?
The health_check_user uses which tables/functions/views for its functioning ?

Should giving a supersuser for these parameters a dangerous way or should I make a separate user with required roles & privileges just for these checks !

I wanted to make separate users for these checking parameters but I really don't know what kind of roles and privileges I needed to grant !

Kindly help by elaborating on above points.

Using PgPool II 3.7.5 and PostgreSQL 10.5 Servers.
