Tile38 replication is a leader-follower model and is intended to be very easy to set up.
Run the commands below using the Command Line Interface. On your local machine you will begin two different Tile38 server instances. The second server will follow the first server.
Open a new terminal and run:
$ ./tile38-server -p 9851 -d data1
This will start a new Tile38 server and persist all data to the
Open a second terminal and run:
$ ./tile38-server -p 9852 -d data2
This will start a second Tile38 server and persist all data to the
Send the second server the command:
FOLLOW localhost 9851 # execute on the port 9852 server
This will instruct the second server to follow the first server.
Then create an object on the first server:
SET key1 obj1 POINT 33.1 -112.4 # execute on the port 9851 server
This will create the object on the first server and replicate the object to the second server.
Finally, test if the object has been create on the second server.
GET key1 obj1 # execute on the port 9852 server
The object will be returned.
A follower will never accept write commands. Write commands are those that create, update, delete or rename objects and collections.
For a follower to accept read commands, so commands that request data from the server like e.g.
WITHIN, the follower
must have caught up to its leader.
If not caught up, the follower will reject the commands with
[Error]: not caught up.
You can check that status using HEALTHZ.
OUTPUT are always accepted by a follower, no matter if caught up, or not.
