repmgr cluster show

Name

repmgr cluster show -- display information about each registered node in the replication cluster

Description

Displays information about each registered node in the replication cluster. This command polls each registered server and shows its role (primary / standby / bdr) and status. It polls each server directly and can be run on any node in the cluster; this is also useful when analyzing connectivity from a particular node.

Execution

This command requires either a valid repmgr.conf file or a database connection string to one of the registered nodes; no additional arguments are needed.

To show database connection errors when polling nodes, run the command in --verbose mode.

Example

    $ repmgr -f /etc/repmgr.conf cluster show

     ID | Name  | Role    | Status    | Upstream | Location | Connection string
    ----+-------+---------+-----------+----------+----------+-----------------------------------------
     1  | node1 | primary | * running |          | default  | host=db_node1 dbname=repmgr user=repmgr
     2  | node2 | standby |   running | node1    | default  | host=db_node2 dbname=repmgr user=repmgr
     3  | node3 | standby |   running | node1    | default  | host=db_node3 dbname=repmgr user=repmgr

Notes

The column Role shows the expected server role according to the repmgr metadata. Status shows whether the server is running or unreachable. If the node has an unexpected role not reflected in the repmgr metadata, e.g. a node was manually promoted to primary, this will be highlighted with an exclamation mark, e.g.:

    $ repmgr -f /etc/repmgr.conf cluster show

     ID | Name  | Role    | Status               | Upstream | Location | Connection string
    ----+-------+---------+----------------------+----------+----------+-----------------------------------------
     1  | node1 | primary | ? unreachable        |          | default  | host=db_node1 dbname=repmgr user=repmgr
     2  | node2 | standby | ! running as primary | node1    | default  | host=db_node2 dbname=repmgr user=repmgr
     3  | node3 | standby |   running            | node1    | default  | host=db_node3 dbname=repmgr user=repmgr

    WARNING: following issues were detected
      node "node1" (ID: 1) is registered as an active primary but is unreachable
      node "node2" (ID: 2) is registered as standby but running as primary

Node availability is tested by connecting from the node where repmgr cluster show is executed, and does not necessarily imply the node is down. See repmgr cluster matrix and repmgr cluster crosscheck to get a better overviews of connections between nodes.

Options

--csv

repmgr cluster show accepts an optional parameter --csv, which outputs the replication cluster's status in a simple CSV format, suitable for parsing by scripts, e.g.:

    $ repmgr -f /etc/repmgr.conf cluster show --csv
    1,-1,-1
    2,0,0
    3,0,1

The columns have following meanings:

  • node ID
  • availability (0 = available, -1 = unavailable)
  • recovery state (0 = not in recovery, 1 = in recovery, -1 = unknown)

--verbose
