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

If the cluster was configured with auto-enable=false then you will need to put each node online individually.
