To start or stop MySQL Fabric nodes, use the
mysqlfabric command (see
Section 8.4, “The
mysqlfabric Utility”). This command requires that
MySQL Fabric and Connector/Python be installed, and assumes that you
have set up the backing store.
The following command starts a MySQL Fabric node and should be run on
one of the servers listed in the
[protocol.xmlrpc] section in the configuration
mysqlfabric manage start
This command starts a MySQL Fabric node on the machine where it is
executed and prints the log to standard output. Thus, this is the
machine where you installed the MySQL Fabric and Connector/Python
software and is also the machine listed in the configuration file
[protocol.xmlrpc] section. To follow the
examples in the quick-start section, you must use
localhost for the host name.
To put the MySQL Fabric node in the background, add the
--daemonize option. However, this diverts the log
to the syslog file. While experimenting with MySQL Fabric, you may
find it more convenient not to use
that the log is written to your terminal.
Use this command to stop a MySQL Fabric node:
mysqlfabric manage stop
This command contacts the MySQL Fabric server running at the address
mentioned in the
[protocol.xmlrpc] section and
instructs it to stop.
