Wrapper on VReplication to perform common actions on a workflow

Command #

Workflow -- [--dry-run] [--cells=<cells>] [--tablet-types=<types>] [--on-ddl=<value>] <keyspace>[.<workflow>] <action>

Description #

Workflow is a convenience command for useful actions on a workflow that you can use instead of actually specifying a query to VReplication.

Parameters #

--dry-run #

default false

You can do a dry run where no actual action is taken but the command logs all the actions that would be taken by the Workflow.

--cells #

optional (Update action only)
default false

You can update an existing workflow so that a different set of cells and/or cell aliases are used when choosing replication sources.

--tablet-types #

optional (Update action only)\

You can update an existing workflow so that different types of tablets are selected when choosing replication sources (see [tablet selection](../tablet_selection/)).

--on-ddl #

optional (Update action only)\

You can update an existing workflow so that DDL in the replication stream are handled differently (see [tablet selection](../vreplication/#handle-ddl)).

keyspace.workflow #


Name of target keyspace and the associated workflow to take action on.
The listall action is an exception to this rule as with that action you only specify the keyspace.

action #


The Action is one of:
  • stop: sets the state of the workflow to Stopped: no further vreplication will happen until workflow is restarted
  • start: restarts a Stopped workflow
  • update: updates configuration parameters for this workflow in the _vt.vreplication table
  • delete: removes the entries for this workflow in the _vt.vreplication table
  • show: returns a JSON object with details about the associated shards and also with all the columns from the _vt.vreplication table
  • listall: returns a comma separated list of all running workflows in a keyspace
  • tags: a comma-separated list of key:value pairs that are used to tag the workflow

Example #

vtctlclient  Workflow keyspace1.workflow1 stop
vtctlclient  Workflow keyspace1.workflow1 show
vtctlclient  Workflow keyspace1 listall
