pgnotifyd connects to a PostgreSQL database, listening for the named asynchronous notification. When notification is received, it executes the given command. It can work as a drop-in replacement for polling a PostgreSQL database for changes (eg. using crontab(5)) and is typically a cleaner and more efficient alternative.
