SLONIK RESTART NODE(7) Configuration and Action commands
RESTART NODE - Restart Slony-I node
RESTART NODE options;
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.
RESTART NODE ( ID = 2 );
No application-visible locking should take place.
SLONIK EVENT CONFIRMATION BEHAVIOUR
Slonik does not wait for event confirmations before performing this
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.
