SLONIK RESTART NODE

Name

RESTART NODE --  Restart Slony-I node

Synopsis

RESTART NODE options;

Description

Causes an eventually running replication daemon (slon process) on the specified node to shutdown and restart itself. Theoretically, this command should be obsolete. In practice, TCP timeouts can delay critical configuration changes to actually happen in the case where a former forwarding node failed and needs to be bypassed by subscribers.

ID = ival

Node ID of the node to restart.

Example

      RESTART NODE ( ID = 2 );
        

Locking Behaviour

No application-visible locking should take place.

Version Information

This command was introduced in Slony-I 1.0; frequent use became unnecessary as of version 1.0.5. There are, however, occasional cases where it is necessary to interrupt a slon process, and this allows this to be scripted via slonik.
