10.4.33. Replicate Filter

The replicate filter enables explicit inclusion or exclusion of tables and schemas. Each specification supports wildcards and multiple entries.

Pre-configured filter name replicate
Classname com.continuent.tungsten.replicator.filter.ReplicateFilter
Property prefix replicator.filter.replicate
Stage compatibility Any
tpm Option compatibility  
Data compatibility Any event
Parameters
Parameter Type Default Description
ignore string empty Comma separated list of database/tables to ignore during replication
do string empty Comma separated list of database/tables to replicate

Rules using the supplied parameters are evaluated as follows:

  • When both do and ignore are empty, updates are allowed to any table.

  • When only do is specified, only the schemas (or schemas and tables) mentioned in the list are replicated.

  • When only ignore is specified, all schemas/tables are replicated except those defined.

For each parameter, a comma-separated list of schema or schema and table definitions are supported, and wildcards using * (any number of characters) and ? (single character) are also honored. For example:

  • do=sales

    Replicates only the schema sales.

  • ignore=sales

    Replicates everything, ignoring the schema sales.

  • ignore=sales.*

    Replicates everything, ignoring the schema sales.

  • ignore=sales.quarter?

    Replicates everything, ignoring all tables within the sales schema starting with sales.quarter and a single character. This would ignore sales.quarter1 but replicate sales.quarterlytotals.

  • ignore=sales.quarter*

    Replicates everything, ignoring all tables in the schema sales starting with quarter.

  • do=*.quarter

    Replicates only the table named quarter within any schema.

  • do=sales.*totals,invoices

    Replicates only tables in the sales schema that end with totals, and the entire invoices schema.
