/sys/replication/performance

Check Performance Status

This endpoint prints information about the status of replication (mode, sync progress, etc).

This is an authenticated endpoint.

MethodPath
GET/sys/replication/performance/status

Sample Request

$ curl \
    http://127.0.0.1:8200/v1/sys/replication/performance/status

Sample Response from Primary

The printed status of the replication environment. As an example, for a primary, it will look something like:

{
  "data": {
    "cluster_id": "d4095d41-3aee-8791-c421-9bc7f88f7c3e",
    "known_secondaries": ["2"],
    "last_wal": 87,
    "merkle_root": "c31e40f6ff02f32c37b70e6a4d58732ac812abf0",
    "mode": "primary"
  }
}

Sample Response from Secondary

The printed status of the replication environment. As an example, for a secondary, it will look something like:

{
  "data": {
    "cluster_id": "d4095d41-3aee-8791-c421-9bc7f88f7c3e",
    "known_primary_cluster_addrs": ["https://127.0.0.1:8201"],
    "last_remote_wal": 87,
    "merkle_root": "c31e40f6ff02f32c37b70e6a4d58732ac812abf0",
    "mode": "secondary",

    "secondary_id": "2",
    "state": "stream-wals"
  }
}

Enable Performance Primary Replication

This endpoint enables replication in primary mode. This is used when replication is currently disabled on the cluster (if the cluster is already a secondary, it must be promoted).

MethodPath
POST/sys/replication/performance/primary/enable

Parameters

  • primary_cluster_addr (string: "") – Specifies the cluster address that the primary gives to secondary nodes. Useful if the primary's cluster address is not directly accessible and must be accessed via an alternate path/address, such as through a TCP-based load balancer. If not set, uses vault's configured cluster address.

Sample Payload

{}

Sample Request

$ curl \
    --header "X-Vault-Token: ..." \
    --request POST \
    --data @payload.json \
    http://127.0.0.1:8200/v1/sys/replication/performance/primary/enable

Demote Performance Primary

This endpoint demotes a performance primary cluster to a performance secondary. This secondary cluster will not attempt to connect to a primary (see the update-primary call), but will maintain knowledge of its cluster ID and can be reconnected to the same replication set without wiping local storage.

MethodPath
POST/sys/replication/performance/primary/demote

Sample Request

$ curl \
    --header "X-Vault-Token: ..." \
    --request POST \
    http://127.0.0.1:8200/v1/sys/replication/performance/primary/demote

Disable Performance Primary

This endpoint disables performance replication entirely on the cluster. Any performance secondaries will no longer be able to connect. Caution: re-enabling this node as a primary or secondary will change its cluster ID; in the secondary case this means a wipe of the underlying storage when connected to a primary, and in the primary case, secondaries connecting back to the cluster (even if they have connected before) will require a wipe of the underlying storage.

MethodPath
POST/sys/replication/performance/primary/disable

Sample Request

$ curl \
    --header "X-Vault-Token: ..." \
    --request POST \
    http://127.0.0.1:8200/v1/sys/replication/performance/primary/disable

Generate Performance Secondary Token

This endpoint generates a performance secondary activation token for the cluster with the given opaque identifier, which must be unique. This identifier can later be used to revoke a secondary's access.

This endpoint requires 'sudo' capability.

MethodPath
POST/sys/replication/performance/primary/secondary-token

Parameters

  • id (string: <required>) – Specifies an opaque identifier, e.g. 'us-east'

  • ttl (string: "30m") – Specifies the TTL for the secondary activation token.

  • secondary_public_key (string: "") – Specifies the secondary's generated public key, if using encryption rather than response wrapping to protect the secondary credentials. (Vault 1.3+)

Sample Payload

{
  "id": "us-east-1"
}

Sample Request

$ curl \
    --header "X-Vault-Token: ..." \
    --request POST \
    --data @payload.json \

  "lease_id": "",
  "lease_duration": 0,
  "renewable": false,
  "data": null,

  }
}

Revoke Performance Secondary Token

This endpoint revokes a performance secondary's ability to connect to the performance primary cluster; the secondary will immediately be disconnected and will not be allowed to connect again unless given a new activation token.

Fetch Performance Secondary Public Key

(Vault 1.3+)

This endpoint allows fetching a public key that is used to encrypt the returned credential information (instead of using a response wrapped token). This avoids needing to make an API call to the primary during activation.

Sample Request

$ curl \
    --header "X-Vault-Token: ..." \
    --request POST \

Enable Performance Secondary

This endpoint enables performance replication on a secondary using a secondary activation token.

MethodPath
POST/sys/replication/performance/secondary/enable

Parameters

  • token (string: <required>) – Specifies the secondary activation token fetched from the primary.

  • primary_api_addr (string: "") – Set this to the API address (normal Vault address) to override the value embedded in the token. This can be useful if the primary's redirect address is not accessible directly from this cluster (e.g. through a load balancer).

  • ca_file (string: "") – Specifies the path to a CA root file (PEM format) that the secondary can use when unwrapping the token from the primary. If this and ca_path are not given, defaults to system CA roots.

  • ca_path (string: "") – Specifies the path to a CA root directory containing PEM-format files that the secondary can use when unwrapping the token from the primary. If this and ca_file are not given, defaults to system CA roots.

Sample Payload

{
  "token": "..."
}

Sample Request

$ curl \
    --header "X-Vault-Token: ..." \
    --request POST \
    --data @payload.json \
    http://127.0.0.1:8200/v1/sys/replication/performance/secondary/enable

Promote Performance Secondary

This endpoint promotes the performance secondary cluster to performance primary. For data safety and security reasons, new secondary tokens will need to be issued to other secondaries, and there should never be more than one performance primary at a time.

MethodPath
POST/sys/replication/performance/secondary/promote

Parameters

  • primary_cluster_addr (string: "") – Specifies the cluster address that the primary gives to secondary nodes. Useful if the primary's cluster address is not directly accessible and must be accessed via an alternate path/address (e.g. through a load balancer).
  • force (bool: false) - If true the cluster will be promoted even if it fails certain safety checks. Caution: Forcing promotion could result in data loss if data isn't fully replicated.

Sample Payload

{}

Sample Request

$ curl \
    --header "X-Vault-Token: ..." \
    --request POST \
    --data @payload.json \
    http://127.0.0.1:8200/v1/sys/replication/performance/secondary/promote

Disable Performance Secondary

This endpoint disables performance replication entirely on the cluster. The cluster will no longer be able to connect to the performance primary.

MethodPath
POST/sys/replication/performance/secondary/disable

Sample Request

$ curl \
    --header "X-Vault-Token: ..." \
    --request POST \
    http://127.0.0.1:8200/v1/sys/replication/performance/secondary/disable

Update Performance Secondary's Primary

This endpoint changes a performance secondary cluster's assigned primary cluster using a secondary activation token. This does not wipe all data in the cluster.

MethodPath
POST/sys/replication/performance/secondary/update-primary

Parameters

  • token (string: <required>) – Specifies the secondary activation token fetched from the primary. If you set this to a blank string, the cluster will stay a secondary but clear its knowledge of any past primary (and thus not attempt to connect to the previous primary). This can be useful if the primary is down to stop the secondary from trying to reconnect to it.

  • primary_api_addr (string: ) – Specifies the API address (normal Vault address) to override the value embedded in the token. This can be useful if the primary's redirect address is not accessible directly from this cluster.

  • ca_file (string: "") – Specifies the path to a CA root file (PEM format) that the secondary can use when unwrapping the token from the primary. If this and ca_path are not given, defaults to system CA roots.

  • ca_path string: () – Specifies the path to a CA root directory containing PEM-format files that the secondary can use when unwrapping the token from the primary. If this and ca_file are not given, defaults to system CA roots.

Sample Payload

{
  "token": "..."
}
