SLONIK CLUSTER NAME(7) Slony-I 2.2.6 Documentation SLONIK CLUSTER NAME(7)
CLUSTER NAME - preamble - identifying Slony-I cluster
CLUSTER NAME = [clustername;]
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 names‐
pace name is built by prefixing the given string literal with an underscore. This names‐
pace 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; .
CLUSTER NAME = testcluster;
This command was introduced in Slony-I 1.0
