As shown in the previous figure, the first two lines of the Replication server status screen are the utility title line and the fully qualified name of the database you specify. The remaining lines are defined in the table that follows.
Table 20. Replication server status
Database is enabled as OpenEdge Replication
Indicates whether the database is enabled as a replication source or target.
Server is
Describes how the server is processing information:
*Normal processing — The server is processing information in the normal fashion.
*Performing initialization — The server is performing initialization.
*Performing startup
*synchronization — The server is in the process of synchronizing the target databases with the source database.
*Connection— The server connection to agent(s).
*Configuring connected agents— The server is performing handshaking with the agent.
*Performing failure recovery — The server is attempting failure recovery from a connection failure.
*Unknown— The server is in an unknown state.
Number of configured agents
Shows the number of agents currently configured to operate with the server.
Defer Agent Startup
Shows information related to deferred agent startup.
Continue connection attempts until
Shows the time, day, and date when connection attempts will stop.
Deferred Agent Startup will expire in
Shows the remaining duration of deferred agent startup.
Next connection attempt in
Shows when the next connection attempt starts.
Connection attempts performed
Shows how many connection attempts have occurred.
Agent(s) currently connected
Shows the number of connected agents.
Delay Interval (current / min / max)
Shows the amount of time, in milliseconds, the server will wait between polling the database for information to be replicated. Current is the current value, min is the minimum value, and max is the maximum value.
Polling is used to increase the performance of the server, and the wait is used to limit the amount of overhead when no data is available to be replicated.
Recovery information
Shows failure-recovery-related details.
Agents needing recovery
Shows the number of remote agents requiring failure recovery.
Agents connected
Shows the number of remote agents currently connected to the server. (Note that since the database is not going through recovery, the number of Agents connected indicated under Recovery information is correctly reflected as zero.)
Agents in synchronization
Shows the number of remote agents in the process of being brought up to date.
Transition information
Shows Replication transition details.
Shows the type of transition to be performed:
*Manual — Indicates intervention is required to complete the transition of a target database to a normal OpenEdge database
*Automatic— Indicates a transition from a target database to a normal OpenEdge database will take place without intervention
Transition timeout limit
Shows the maximum amount of time that will elapse before the transition of a target database to a normal OpenEdge database.
Note: This line does not appear in manual transition, as the timeout limit is shown for automatic transition only.
Replication set
Indicates if Replication is configured for Replication sets. Set to 1 if configured, 0 if not.
Database role
Indicates the role of the source database in transition. Valid values include:
Transition to agents
Displays the names of the agents in the replication set.
Restart after transition
Displays if the source database is configured to be restarted after transition. Set 1 for restart, 0 for no restart.
Automatically begin AI
When Replication Set =1, indicates whether to start after-imaging on a target database that is transition to a source. Set 1 to start after-imaging, 0 to not start.
If Replication set is not enabled, set to the unknown value, "?"
Automatically add AI areas
Indicates if after-image areas should be automatically added to the target database that is transitioning to a source. Set to 1 to add after-image areas, 0 not to add AI.
AI structure file
The name of the structure file to use if automatically adding AI areas.
If Automatically add AI is not enabled, set to the unknown value, "?"
Backup method
The backup method used during transition. Valid entries include:
Configured agents
Displays the names of the configured replication target agents
Repl keep alive
Displays the time, in seconds, that replication will wait and attempt to re-establish communication before starting transition.
Schema lock action
Action to take if schema lock exists. Valid entries include:
Agent shutdown action
Action to take when agent shuts down. Valid entries include:
