NAME

       RESTART NODE - Restart Slony-I node

SYNOPSIS

       RESTART NODE options;

DESCRIPTION

       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.

EXAMPLE

         RESTART NODE ( ID = 2 );

LOCKING BEHAVIOUR

       No application-visible locking should take place.

VERSION INFORMATION

       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.
