A transaction can merely be replicated if all based transactions are replicated. here's an instance: Connection 1: Connection 2: INSERT ... VALUES (1) commence; commence; INSERT ... VALUES (2) INSERT ... VALUES (3) dedicate; [ 181 ] Using Skytools Connection 1: INSERT ... VALUES (4) Connection 2: devote; take note, if we deal with queues we need to ensure that overall order is maintained if you want to in basic terms offer row quantity three to the shopper if the transaction writing row quantity four has devoted. If we have been to supply row quantity three to the patron earlier than the second one transaction in connection 1 has complete, row quantity three could successfully overtake row quantity 2. This mustn't ever be the case. relating to pgq a so referred to as ticker procedure will look after these little information. The ticker (pgqd) approach will deal with the queue for us and judge who's able to already eat what. To make the ticker technique paintings, we create directories. One will carry logfiles and the opposite one goes to shop the pid records created via the ticker strategy: hs@hs-VirtualBox:~$ mkdir log hs@hs-VirtualBox:~$ mkdir pid after we have created these directories we need to get a hold of a config dossier for the ticker: [pgqd] logfile = ~/log/pgqd. log pidfile = ~/pid/pgqd. pid ## non-compulsory parameters ## # libpq attach string with out dbname= base_connstr = host=localhost # startup db to question different databases initial_database = postgres # restrict ticker to express databases database_list = try out # log into syslog syslog = zero syslog_ident = pgqd [ 182 ] Chapter eleven ## non-compulsory timeouts ## # how usually to examine for brand new databases check_period = 60 # how frequently to flush retry queue retry_period = 30 # how usually to do maintentance maint_period = a hundred and twenty # how usually to run ticker ticker_period = 1 As we've pointed out already, the ticker is accountable for these queues. to ensure that this works properly, we need to element the ticker to the PostgreSQL example. remember that the attach string should be autocompleted (some info is already identified by way of the infrastructure and it really is used for autocompletion). preferably you'll use the database_list directive right here to ensure that basically these databases which are quite wanted can be taken. so far as logging is worried you were given concepts right here. you could without delay log to syslog or ship the log to a logfile. In our instance we've got determined to not use syslog (syslog has been set to zero in our config file). ultimately there are a few parameters to configure how frequently queue upkeep may be played etc. The ticker might be all started simply: hs@hs-VirtualBox:~/skytools$ pgqd ticker. ini 2013-05-14 17:01:38. 006 23053 LOG beginning pgqd three. 1. four 2013-05-14 17:01:38. 059 23053 LOG try out: pgq model okay: three. 1. three 2013-05-14 17:02:08. 010 23053 LOG {ticks: 30, maint: 1, retry: zero} 2013-05-14 17:02:38. 012 23053 LOG {ticks: 30, maint: zero, retry: zero} the key here's that the ticker is also begun as daemon without delay. The –d command line alternative will immediately ship the method to the history and decouple it from the lively terminal.
