SET MOVE TABLE - Move a table from one Slony-I replication set to another

SLONIK SET MOVE TABLE(7) Slony-I 2.2.6 Documentation SLONIK SET MOVE TABLE(7)

NAME

SET MOVE TABLE - Move a table from one Slony-I replication set to another

SYNOPSIS


SET MOVE TABLE (options);

DESCRIPTION

Change the set a table belongs to. The current set and the new set must origin on the same node and subscribed by the same nodes.
Caution
Due to the way subscribing to new sets works make absolutely sure that the subscription of all nodes to the sets is completely processed before moving tables. Moving a table too early to a new set causes the subscriber to try and add the table already during the subscription process, which fails with a duplicate key error and breaks replication.
ORIGIN = ival
Current origin of the set. A future version of slonik might figure out this information by itself.
ID = ival
Unique ID of the table.
NEW SET = ival
Unique ID of the set to which the table should be added.
This uses “schemadocsetmovetable(p_new_set_id integer, p_tab_id integer)” [not available as a man page].

EXAMPLE

SET MOVE TABLE (
    ORIGIN = 1,
    ID = 20,
    NEW SET = 3
);
