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 Section 5.1.1.1, “How to Stop/Start the Oracle Redo Reader Process” for steps on how to control the Oracle Redo Reader process.
