Postgres Job Upgrade

The Postgres Job will upgrade the postgres database to version 9.4.2.
Postgres will be unavailable during this upgrade.

A copy of the database is made for the upgrade, you may need to adjust the
persistent disk capacity of the postgres job.

If the upgrade fails:

- The old database is still available at /var/vcap/store/postgres
- The new database is at /var/vcap/store/postgres-9.4.2
- A marker file is kept at /var/vcap/store/FLAG_POSTGRES_UPGRADE to
prevent the upgrade from happening again.
- pg_upgrade logs that may have details of why the migration failed can
be found in/home/vcap/

To attempt the upgrade again, you should remove
/var/vcap/store/postgres-9.4.2 and/var/vcap/store/FLAG_POSTGRES_UPGRADE

To rollback to a previous release, you should remove
/var/vcap/store/postgres-9.4.2 and/var/vcap/store/FLAG_POSTGRES_UPGRADE.
The previous release has no knowledge of these files, but they will
conflict if you later try the upgrade again.

Post upgrade, both old and new databases are kept. The old database moved to
/var/vcap/store/postgres-previous. The postgres-previous directory will be
kept until the next postgres upgrade is performed in the future. You are
free to remove this if you have verified the new database works and you
want to reclaim the space.
Manifest and Job Spec Changes
