       STORE PATH - Configure Slony-I node connection


       STORE PATH (options);


       Configures  how  the  replication  daemon  of  one node connects to the
       database of another node. If the replication system is supposed to  use
       a  special  backbone  network  segment,  this  is the place to user the
       special IP addresses or hostnames. An  existing  configuration  can  be

       The  conninfo  string  must  contain  all information to connect to the
       database as the replication superuser. The names ‘server’  or  ‘client’
       have  nothing  to  do  with  the  particular  role of a node within the
       cluster configuration. It should be simply viewed as ‘the  server’  has
       the  message or data that ‘the client is supposed to get.’ For a simple
       2 node setup, paths into both directions must be configured.

       It does not do any harm to configure path information from  every  node
       to  every  other  node  (full  cross  product). The connections are not
       established unless they are required to  actually  transfer  events  or
       confirmations   because   of   listen   entries   or  data  because  of

       SERVER = ival
              Node ID of the database to connect to.

       CLIENT = ival
              Node ID of the replication daemon connecting.

       CONNINFO = string
              PQconnectdb() argument to establish the connection.

       CONNRETRY = ival
              Number of seconds to wait before another attempt to  connect  is
              made in case the server is unavailable. Default is 10.

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


       STORE PATH ( SERVER = 1, CLIENT = 2,
                    CONNINFO = ’dbname=testdb host=server1 user=slony’


       No application-visible locking should take place.
