CLONE PREPARE - Prepare for cloning a node.
clone prepare [ id] [ provider] [ comment]
Prepares for cloning a specified subscriber node.
This duplicates the ‘provider’ node's configuration under a new node ID
in preparation for the node to be copied via standard database tools.
Note that in order that we be certain that this new node be consistent
with all nodes, it is important to issue a SYNC event against every
node aside from the provider and wait to start copying the provider
database at least until all those SYNC events have been confirmed by
the provider. Otherwise, it is possible for the clone to miss some
clone prepare (id = 33, provider = 22, comment='Clone 33');
SLONIK EVENT CONFIRMATION BEHAVIOUR
Slonik will wait until the node being cloned (the provider) is caught
up with all other nodes before submitting the clone prepare command
This command was introduced in Slony-I 2.0.
