What to Monitor


Imminent subscription expiration


Exceeding the specified synchronization
time


Falling short of processing the specified number
of rows in a given amount of time
.


Snapshot Agent

Replication Warnings


Warn if a subscription will expire within the
threshold


Warn
if a merge length for LAN connections
exceeds the
threshold


Warn if rows merged per second for LAN
connections is less than the
threshold
