NAME

       CLUSTER NAME - preamble - identifying Slony-I cluster

SYNOPSIS

       CLUSTER NAME = [clustername;]

DESCRIPTION

       Must be the very first statement in every slonik script. It defines the namespace in which
       all Slony-I  specific  functions,  procedures,  tables  and  sequences  are  defined.  The
       namespace  name  is  built  by prefixing the given string literal with an underscore. This
       namespace will be identical in all databases that  participate  in  the  same  replication
       group.

       No  user  objects are supposed to live in this namespace, and the namespace is not allowed
       to exist prior to adding a database to the replication system. Thus, if you add a new node
       using pg_dump -s on a database that is already in the cluster of replicated databases, you
       will need to drop the namespace via the SQL command DROP SCHEMA _testcluster CASCADE; .

EXAMPLE

            CLUSTER NAME = testcluster;
