Overview

Mammoth Replicator is an integrated asynchronous master - slave replication solution with failover support.

Features:

  1. Complete integration with PostgreSQL
  2. Master to multiple slaves
  3. Support for replication of large objects
  4. Support for switchover and failover
  5. Can replicate to periodically connecting slaves (batched updates)
  6. Can coexist with other replication solutions (i.e. warm standby or slony)

Limitations:

  1. No support for replication of DDL commands (i.e. CREATE TABLE)
  2. Single database only
  3. No support for cascading slaves
