STORE TRIGGER - Indicate that a trigger should not be disabled by
Slony-I on a subscriber node
STORE TRIGGER (options);
By default, all user defined triggers and constraints are disabled on
all subscriber nodes while a table is replicated. This command can be
used to explicitly exclude a trigger from being disabled.
TABLE ID = ival
The unique, numeric ID number of the table the trigger is
TRIGGER NAME = ’string’
The name of the trigger as it appears in the pg_trigger system
EVENT NODE = ival
(Optional) The ID of the node used to create the configuration
event that tells all existing nodes about the special trigger.
Default value is 1.
A nifty trick is that you can run STORE TRIGGER before the
trigger is installed; that will not cause any errors. You could
thus add Slony-I’s handling of the trigger before it is
installed. That allows you to be certain that it becomes active
on all nodes immediately upon its installation via SLONIK
EXECUTE SCRIPT(7); there is no risk of events getting through in
between the EXECUTE SCRIPT and STORE TRIGGER events.
This uses “schemadocstoretrigger( integer, name )” [not available as a
STORE TRIGGER (
TABLE ID = 2,
TRIGGER NAME = ’cache_invalidation’
This operation will need to acquire an exclusive lock on the specified
table on each node to which it applies in order to alter table schemas
to add back the trigger, but (hopefully!) only briefly.
This command was introduced in Slony-I 1.0
In Slony-I version 2.0, this command is removed as obsolete because
triggers are no longer ‘messed around with’ in the system catalogue.
