Slony-I ------------------ $Id: README,v 1.12 2006-09-29 18:42:02 cbbrowne Exp $ Slony-I is a "master to multiple slaves" replication system with cascading and failover. The big picture for the development of Slony-I is a master-slave system that includes all features and capabilities needed to replicate large databases to a reasonably limited number of slave systems. Slony-I is a system for data centers and backup sites, where the normal mode of operation is that all nodes are available, and where systems may be expected to be managed in a reasonably disciplined fashion. 1. Build and install See the INSTALL file nearby 2. Creating a sample database with application See the SAMPLE file nearby There is also a "test" directory in the source tree which contains a variety of regression tests. Looking at how they work may also be helpful. 3. Help! I ran into a problem. The file in the documentation area named "helpitsbroken.txt" contains a variety of notes describing problems that people have run into in setting up Slony-I instances. This has been extended into a full scale FAQ. It may be worth checking there to see if the problem you are having has already been documented and diagnosed by someone else. There is an extensive "administrative guide" in the documentation tree that includes manual pages for binaries and for the Slonik language, as well as overviews of various aspects of how Slony-I works and should be used, including a "Best Practices" document that distills some of the hard-learned lessons and a FAQ. This "admin guide" may be found online at: <http://linuxdatabases.info/info/slony.html> You may also wish to contact the Slony-I mailing list, findable at <http://slony.info/>. or take a peek at who might be available to chat on the IRC channel #slony on freenode.net. -- Slony-I team
