CLONE PREPARE - Prepare for cloning a node.

SLONIK CLONE PREPARE(7) Slony-I 2.2.6 Documentation SLONIK CLONE PREPARE(7)

NAME

CLONE PREPARE - Prepare for cloning a node.

SYNOPSIS


clone prepare
[ id] [ provider] [ comment]

DESCRIPTION

Prepares for cloning a specified subscriber node.
This duplicates the ‘provider’ node's configuration under a new node ID in preparation for the node to be copied via standard database tools.
Note that in order that we be certain that this new node be consistent with all nodes, it is important to issue a SYNC event against every node aside from the provider and wait to start copying the provider database at least until all those SYNC events have been confirmed by the provider. Otherwise, it is possible for the clone to miss some events.

EXAMPLE

     clone prepare (id = 33, provider = 22, comment='Clone 33');
     sync (id=11);
     sync (id=22);
     

SLONIK EVENT CONFIRMATION BEHAVIOUR

Slonik will wait until the node being cloned (the provider) is caught up with all other nodes before submitting the clone prepare command
