I have standard transactional replication setup from 2005 to 4 2008 subscribers. One of the tables that is replicated is updated several times from an agent job resulting in 6 million updates statements every morning which is causing massive deadlock chains on the subscribers.
I think the resolution is to change this to replicate just a stored procedure call? Do I simply have to add the new stored procedure into the publication & add the article at the subscriber ?
I have attempted this as still seem to be transmitting all of the update statements, I have added the article properties to replicate the call of the stored procedure as well but still seeing all rows in replication monitor
