I have a question, I am managing 2 SQL servers
- is Master Server (Publisher + Distributor)
- is Client Server (Subscriber)
The client is basically owned by a client who is buying data from us.
Both Servers are replicated with each other using Transactional-replication.
Only selected Tables of a single database are replicated from the Master Server to Client Server.
Basically there are several problems i want to discuss.
When I add or delete any data table and take snapshot of replication then all databases vanish from customer side and after that it rebuilds in 20-30 minutes (I only have limited access so don’t get logs)
When I reinitialize subscription then it takes a lot of time to completing it and it is showing partially applied scripts of tables in monitoring.
Publisher to Distributor showing high commands and transactions count but actually on distributor to subscriber commands and transaction counts are more than 100’s of times lower as compare to publisher section.
Latency is Very high between Publisher-Distributor (around 5+ minutes)(Server-1) and jumps to 7 minutes then automatically less and stay on some seconds but average is really very high. Distributor-Subscriber latency seems fine.
Log Size of Master DB increases and occupying space around 3.5 GB (Normally 3 GB with 80-87% free space) whether Data File Size also increases and now it’s 4 GB+ (Normally 3.3 – 3.5 GB)
