-In a HAWQ DBMS, each database instance (the master and all segments) must be initialized
across all of the hosts in the system in such a way that they can all work together as a unified
DBMS. The `hawq init cluster` utility takes care of initializing the HAWQ master and each
segment instance, and configuring the system as a whole. When hawq init cluster is run, the
cluster comes online automatically without needing to explicitly start it. A single node cluster
can be started without any user-defined changes to the default `hawq-site.xml` file. Use the
template-hawq-site.xml file to specify the configuration for larger clusters.

 A backup, standby master host serves as a 'warm standby' in the event of the primary master
host becoming non-operational. The standby master is kept up to date by transaction log replication
processes (the `walsender` and `walreceiver`), which run on the primary master and standby
master hosts and keep the data between the primary and standby master hosts synchronized.
To add a standby master to the system, use the command `hawq init standby`, for example `hawq
init standby           host09`. You can configure the standby hostname at initialization without
needing to run hawq config by defining it using the --standby-host option. To create the standby
above, you would specify `hawq init standby --standby-host=host09` or `hawq init cluster --standby-host=host09`.
 
-If the primary master fails, the log replication process is shut down, and the standby master
can be activated in its place by using the `hawq activate standby` utility. Upon activation
of the standby master, the replicated logs are used to reconstruct the state of the master
host at the time of the last successfully committed transaction.
