Subject Re: CDCR: Help With Tlog Growth Issues
Date Fri, 02 Dec 2016 10:08:12 GMT
Hi Shalin,

when the buffer is enabled, tlogs are not removed anymore, even if they 
were replicated [1]:
"When buffering updates, the updates log will store all the updates 
indefinitely. "

Once you disable the buffer, all the old tlogs should be cleaned (the 
next time the tlog cleaning process is triggered).

Buffer is useful in scenarios when you want to ensure that the source 
cluster will not clean updates until the target clusters are fully 
initialized. For example, let say we perform a whole index replication 
(SLR-6465), while the whole-index replication is performed, the source 
cluster should buffer updates until the whole-index replication is 
completed, otherwise we might miss some updates..


Kind Regards
Renaud Delbru
