What would you like to do?
Restart ZongJi gracefully on error
var ZongJi = require('zongji');
var RETRY_TIMEOUT = 4000;
function zongjiManager(dsn, options, onBinlog) {
var newInst = new ZongJi(dsn, options);
newInst.on('error', function(reason) {
newInst.removeListener('binlog', onBinlog);
setTimeout(function() {
// If multiple errors happened, a new instance may have already been created
if(!('child' in newInst)) {
newInst.child = zongjiManager(dsn, Object.assign({}, options, {
binlogName: newInst.binlogName,
binlogNextPos: newInst.binlogNextPos
}), onBinlog);
newInst.emit('child', newInst.child, reason);
newInst.child.on('child', child => newInst.emit('child', child));
newInst.on('binlog', onBinlog);
return newInst;
// To check if it works
var eventCount = 0;
setInterval(function() { console.log('Events:', eventCount) }, 2000);
var zongji = zongjiManager(
// Pass the connection settings
host : 'localhost',
user : 'root',
password : 'numtel',
// Pass the options
// Must include rotate events for binlogName and binlogNextPos properties
includeEvents: ['rotate', 'tablemap', 'writerows', 'updaterows', 'deleterows'],
// Binlog callback that will be attached each time Zongji is restarted
function(event) {
var newest = zongji;
zongji.on('child', function(child, reason) {
console.log('New Instance Created', reason);
newest = child;
process.on('SIGINT', function() {
console.log('Got SIGINT.');

@numtel this will create a new Zongji instance, but the new instance doesn't have the TableMap yet right?
