14.22.1. Name

taler-auditor-sync - create a “safe” synchronized copy of a Taler exchange database for an audit

14.22.2. Synopsis

taler-auditor-sync [-s FILENAME | –source-configuration=FILENAME] [-d FILENAME | –destination-configuration=FILENAME] [-h | –help] [-b SIZE | –batch=SIZE] [-t | –terminate-when-synchronized] [-v | –version] [-L LOGLEVEL | –loglevel=LOGLEVEL]

14.22.3. Description

taler-auditor-sync is a command-line tool to synchronize the Taler auditor’s database in a safe way from a Taler exchange database. If the exchange database violates the assumed database invariants (as expressed by database constraints) or attempts to DELETE or UPDATE tables (at least those that the auditor relies upon), taler-auditor-sync will not replicate those changes and instead halt with an error.

Its options are as follows:

-s FILENAME | –source-configuration=FILENAME

Use the configuration in FILENAME to access the original (source) exchange database to copy records from.

-d FILENAME | –destination-configuration=FILENAME

Use the configuration in FILENAME to access the target (destination) exchange database to copy records to.

-t | –terminate-when-synchronized

The program should exit once the two databases are in sync, instead of continuously copying more records when the source database is updated.

-h | –help

Print short help on options.


Specifies the log level to use. Accepted values are: DEBUG, INFO, WARNING, ERROR.

-b SIZE | –batch=SIZE

Target number of records to copy in one transaction. Once the databases are in sync, the batch size is used to determine how long the process sleeps before trying to again synchronize the two databases. Not useful if -t is used.

-v | –version

Print version information.
