Replication transactions slow

This question is not answered



OpenEdge 10.2B08  Replication plus

I have done an index compact on the source database. The target database is behind. The number of transaction processed on the target was slow (1 transaction in 4 seconds).

I have restarted the replication and now it says 'Startup synchronization' and the number of transactions is still very slow, 1 transaction in 4 seconds.

Current Source Database Transaction:    4487378093
Last Transaction Applied to Target:     4487371502 <= The value of 'Last Transaction Applied to Target" add 1 in 4 seconds.

We checked the line between the two servers, but we could not see any congestion. Both servers are doing nothing.

So why is it very slow?

Kind regards,

    That depends on the nature of the performance problems and the extent to which they are write-related.  But if the I/O subsystem is very slow for unbuffered writes, I wouldn't be terribly surprised if it's also slow for reads.  Certainly worth exploring, but maybe in a new thread as it likely isn't related to Edwin's issue.  ;)

  • Hey Mike, since when is 24 a power of 2? :)

  • Well, he didn't say *integer* powers of 2... ;)

  • Good point, but it is round enough for me.  16 to 32 is too much of a stretch.
