do we have a diagram or article, which explains the
fundamentals in detail of how sybase replication and each of
its components works?

ie what exactly a rep agent does, what a rep agent executor
does, how inbound queue is processed, how outbound queue is
processed, what a dsi does, what a distributor does etc?

i am trying to understand the various performance
configuration parameters in replication and so would like to
go through the fundamentals again.

appreciate the feedback.
