Setup Instructions

replication-manager is a self-contained binary without dependencies that should work on most platforms. We only test builds for Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X at this time.

For convenience, we provide packages for Debian/Ubuntu and Centos/RHEL and derivatives.

As of today we build portable binary tarballs, Debian Jessie, Ubuntu, CentOS 6 & 7 packages.

Check out GitHub Releases for official releases.

Development builds are also available on our Continuous Integration Server

Packages, binary naming convention

Prior to replication-manager (2.0), a unique binary replication-manager was used for monitoring and command line actions. As the result of this design monitoring or command line failover could not be used concurrently.

Since 2.0 the architecture was split in a more traditional client-server providing multiple binaries:

A server monitoring daemon that comes with different flavors based on included features : replication-manager-( osc, tst, pro,arm, arb).

And a command line client binary replication-manager-cli that is requesting actions to the monitoring daemon via a secured protocol.

replication-manager-cli is bundled within the server packages but can as well be installed on it's own for convenience.

Package Flavor Description
replication-manager-osc Open Source Offers all features excepting provisioning (recommended version).
replication-manager-tst Test Offers OSC features and extra features for testing like local service bootstrap, benchmarking...
replication-manager-pro Provisioning Offers commercial, ready to go cluster provisioning solution.
replication-manager-arm Provisioning Offers pro features for on ARM V8
replication-manager-arb Arbitrator Offers arbitration for replication-manager clustering.

Installation from our repository


Configure the repository as such:

# /etc/yum.repos.d/signal18.repo
name=Signal18 repositories


yum install replication-manager-osc

For last release candidate

# /etc/yum.repos.d/signal18.repo
name=Signal18 repositories


Create the repo file, install the key and install the binaries as such:

# change next line with desired version number
echo "deb [arch=amd64] $(lsb_release -sc) $version" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/signal18.list
apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver FAE20E50
apt-get update
apt-get install replication-manager-osc

Installation from tarball

Download the archive from GitHub Releases.

You can now unpack the tarball in your local directory:

sudo tar zxvf replication-manager-{YOUR_VERSION}.tar.gz -C /usr/local/

Create a symlink

sudo ln -s /usr/local/replication-manager-{YOUR_VERSION} /usr/local/replication-manager

Copy the systemd or init files in your system:

sudo cp /usr/local/replication-manager/share/replication-manager.init /etc/init.d/replication-manager

Building from source

To build from source, you need to install first the Go 1.8 binary release.

Clone the source on GitHub and follow the steps:

git clone ~/go/src/
cd ~/go/src/
make bin

This will build all the binary releases.

If you want to build the packages, use the following make recipe:

make package

For a basic usage you can proceed with the configuration step
