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 command
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. 13 October 2018 SLONIK RESTART NODE(7)
