Mimeo
=====

Mimeo is an extension that provides specialized, per-table replication between PostgreSQL instances. It currently provides snapshot (whole table copy), incremental (based on an incrementing timestamp or id), and DML (inserts, updates and deletes).

Also installing the pg_jobmon extension (see other repositories in omniti-labs) to log all replication activity and provide monitoring is highly recommended. 

In addition to the documentation, some additional information about this extension is discussed on the author's blog http://www.keithf4.com/tag/mimeo/

INSTALLATION
------------

Requirements: PostgreSQL 9.1+, dblink extension 

Recommendations: pg_jobmon (>= 1.3.2) extension (https://github.com/omniti-labs/pg_jobmon)

In directory where you downloaded mimeo to run

    make
    make install

Log into PostgreSQL and run the following commands. Schema can be whatever you wish, but it cannot be changed after installation.

    CREATE SCHEMA mimeo;
