STORE PATH - Configure Slony-I node connection
STORE PATH (options);
Configures how the replication daemon of one node connects to the database of
another node. If the replication system is supposed to use a special backbone
network segment, this is the place to user the special IP addresses or
hostnames. An existing configuration can be overwritten.
The conninfo string must contain all information to connect to the database as
the replication superuser. The names ‘server’ or
‘client’ have nothing to do with the particular role of a node
within the cluster configuration. It should be simply viewed as ‘the
server’ has the message or data that ‘the client is supposed to
get.’ For a simple 2 node setup, paths into both directions must be
It does not do any harm to configure path information from every node to every
other node (full cross product). The connections are not established unless
they are required to actually transfer events or confirmations because of
entries or data because of subscriptions
- SERVER = ival
- Node ID of the database to connect to.
- CLIENT = ival
- Node ID of the replication daemon connecting.
- CONNINFO = string
- PQconnectdb() argument to establish the
- CONNRETRY = ival
- Number of seconds to wait before another attempt to connect
is made in case the server is unavailable. Default is 10.

No application-visible locking should take place.
