NAME

       CREATE SET - Create Slony-I replication set

SYNOPSIS

       CREATE SET (options);

DESCRIPTION

       In  the  Slony-I replication system, replicated tables are organized in sets. As a general
       rule of thumb, a set  should  contain  all  the  tables  of  one  application,  that  have
       relationships.  In  a  well  designed  application, this is equal to all the tables in one
       schema.

       The smallest unit one node can subscribe for replication from another node is a set. A set
       always  has  an origin. In classical replication terms, that would be the ‘master.’  Since
       in Slony-I a node can be the ‘master’ over one set, while receiving  replication  data  in
       the  ‘slave’  role  for  another  at  the  same  time,  this terminology may easily become
       misleading and should therefore be replaced with ‘set origin’ and ‘subscriber’.

       ID = ival
              ID of the set to be created.

       ORIGIN = ival
              Initial origin node of the set.

       COMMENT = 'string'
              A descriptive text added to the set entry.

              If none is provided, a default value is set; A replication set  so  boring  no  one
              thought to give it a name.

       This uses “schemadocstoreset(integer, text)” [not available as a man page] .

EXAMPLE

            CREATE SET ( ID = 1,
                      ORIGIN = 1,
                      COMMENT = 'Tables for ticketing system' );

LOCKING BEHAVIOUR

       No application-visible locking should take place.
