To keep the article reasonably short, I assume that readers are conversant with MySQL, Tungsten, and Vertica. Basic replication setup is not hard if you follow all the steps described here, but of course there are variations in every setup. For more information on Tungsten check out the Tungsten Replicator project at code.google.com site well as current Tungsten commercial documentation at Continuent.
Now let's get replication up and running!
What Is the Topology?
In this exercise we will set up Tungsten master/slave replication to move data from MySQL 5.1 to Vertical 5.1. Master/slave is the simplest topology to set up because you don't have to mix settings for different DBMS types in each service. To keep keep things simple, we will install Tungsten directly on the MySQL and Vertica hosts, which are named db1 and db2 respectively. Here is a diagram:
