2.5. Starting and Stopping Tungsten Replicator

To shutdown a running Tungsten Replicator operation you must switch off the replicator:

shell> replicator stop
Stopping Tungsten Replicator Service...
Stopped Tungsten Replicator Service.

Note

Stopping the replicator in this way results in an ungraceful shutdown of the replicator. To perform a graceful shutdown, use trepctl offline first, then stop or restart the replicator.

To start the replicator service if it is not already running:

shell> replicator start
Starting Tungsten Replicator Service...

To restart the replicator (stop and start) service if it is not already running:

shell> replicator restart
Stopping Tungsten Replicator Service...
Stopped Tungsten Replicator Service.
Starting Tungsten Replicator Service...

For some scenarios, such as initiating a load within a heterogeneous environment, the replicator can be started up in the OFFLINE state:

shell> replicator start offline

In a clustered environment, if the cluster was configured with auto-enable=false then you will need to put each node online individually.

If you are running Tungsten Replicator with Oracle Redo Reader, consult ??? for steps on how to control the Oracle Redo Reader process.
