Hi Folks,

The docs for the Replicator say it's not suitable for use in
maintaining a warm standby system. I'm unable to determine
by looking at the functional restrictions why that would be
so.

What am I missing? Is this a viable alternative with some
restrictions on what situations it would work in?

Thanks,

John

ASE replicator is suitable for for low-volume, non-critical replication
where latency is not so important, only. For a warm standby (typically
having more than a few transactions and especially, a low latency) better
use Replication Server. Also see www.sypron.nl/aserep.html

HTH,

Rob
