Multi-angle replication analysis for servers and databases

As an administrator, the need to resolve issues with replication can arise suddenly. If a user has signaled a problem, you'll have an idea where to start searching. Otherwise, there really isn’t anywhere to get a central overview of replication in the native toolkit. Trying to weed out replication problems proactively can be a struggle, and most will go unnoticed until it's too late. No matter what the problem is, replicationEZ gives you numerous ways to approach your analysis. Seeing the entire replication situation in one place is a great help, but that is only the beginning.

Get a thorough replication analysis from many different angles—no matter what your starting point.

Exhaustive Replica Content Comparisons

Verify replica content consistency

Finding all replicas of a given database is already a difficult task to accomplish in the native Notes tools. IF you do get that far (think about how many servers you would have to sift through in a large environment), how would you compare their contents to find out if replication is running smoothly? replicationEZ lets you get a global snapshot of replication : see multiple databases and all of their replicas all at once in one feature-packed, central interface.

Find out if your replicas are in sync, through multi-faceted content comparisons.

Ensuring that databases and their replicas are in sync is crucial, and was once a common stumbling point for productivity. Now, replicationEZ lets you go from not knowing if you have replication problems in your environment, to solving problems, all in the same tool.

Perform an on-demand replication consistency check

Cross-verify database and replica contents. See a breakdown by criteria such as the number of documents and designs, form and field class notes, deletion stubs, etc.

Analyze multiple databases in one place

Expose inconsistencies and problems fast with the ability to analyze multiple databases and their replicas in a single interface—no alternate sessions required.

Troubleshoot replication easily

Use #54

Compare contents and identify discrepancies, across all replicas of a database.

Compare and verify miscellaneous properties across all replicas at once.

In addition to comparing database contents, it's also a good idea to compare application properties across replicas. replicationEZ lets you see up to 80 properties—including basic attributes like physical and logical application size, quote limit, warning, replication properties, and more—for all databases and all their replicas in one place.

Compare and verify miscellaneous properties across all replicas at once.
Painless ACL Crosschecking

Confirm ACL consistency

When it comes to replication problems, database properties aren't the only possible offenders; ACL entries often go overlooked as a possible cause. There are limitations in the way the native Notes toolkit lets you handle ACLs, so if the clock is ticking on a replication problem, crosschecking them between replicas can be a stressful situation. replicationEZ lets you compare ACLs between correlated replicas (even across multiple databases) to target inconsistencies. If you happen to find any ACL problems, you're only a few clicks away from the resolution.

Verify oft-missed replication culprits—ACLs—quickly and easily.

ACLs are a much-missed culprit of replication problems. replicationEZ makes it simple to parse and explore ACLs across replicas, and puts the tools to fix any discrepancies that you might find right at your fingertips.

Compare ACL properties

Parse all ACLs for multiple databases and all of their replicas to compare their ACL entry properties in one, functionally-enhanced interface.

Target ACL inconsistencies

See, instantly, where ACLs don't match between replicas thanks to automatic inconsistency indicators.

replicationEZ makes it easier than ever to ID databases with replication issues. Taking the next step to find the root cause is simple, thanks to the ability to compare ACLs, ACL entry presence, and all ACL flags and roles across all replicas—even for multiple databases at once in only a click.

Dedicated Agent Comparison Tool

Compare agents across replicas

Agent consistency is another aspect to consider when talking about replication. However, comparing agents between databases can be a daunting task in the native Notes toolkit. Comparing agents between replicas across multiple servers is almost impossible. With agents being so hidden, how would you determine if a given agent has properly replicated throughout all replicas? What if they have replicated, but are, for example, set to run on different servers?

Evaluate the distribution of agents, their attributes, configuration, etc., across multiple databases and all their replicas.

If you're having replication problems, or even anomalies such as high volumes of conflicts, don't forget to check the status of your agents and compare them across replicas. This was once a difficult proposition, but replicationEZ gives you what you need to remedy these problems.

Ensure consistent agent replication

See, instantly, if agents are replicated uniformly across all replicas (inconsistencies are automatically highlighted for you).

See agent properties for multiple replicas at once

View basic agent property information for all replicas in a dedicated flexYgrid interface—categorize data by any given setting, such as the server they’re set to run on.

Use #18

Ensure cross-replica agent presence and consistent agent properties.

Traditionally it's been difficult to verify agents across replicas, but with replicationEZ this can become common, easy practice. See if agents have replicated through all database replicas, or even see if some of their key properties (such as Status, and Run On settings) are properly synchronized, and more.

Conflict Documents, Uncovered

Uncover conflicts on a large scale

Administrators usually become aware of conflicts by users signaling database problems. There is no guarantee that users themselves will make the right choice when it comes to dealing with these issues; there is a good chance that they could even compound the problem. You NEED a proactive way of finding and dealing with these problems. What if there was a way to sweep over vast quantities of databases and their replicas for any conflicts before problems arise?

Built-in tools and tight integration allow you to find conflicts across multiple databases, and resolve/merge the conflicting documents.

Don't let conflicts catch you off guard!

With replicationEZ you can scour huge amounts of databases and all their replicas to find any conflicts before they become even larger problems it's easy to make your environment conflict-free.

Uncover conflicts on a large scale

Compare large amounts of databases and all their replicas in an intuitive, central, grid interface and sweep them to uncover conflicts, all in just a couple of clicks.

Act on found conflicts fast

Get to the conflicts you've found fast through the detailed conflict document report.

Uncover, understand, and painlessly resolve conflicts across databases and servers.

Even though scanEZ offers a world-class tool to solve database conflicts, you still need to know a problem exists in order to fix it. replicationEZ comes to the rescue and lets you discover conflicts in multiple databases AND all their replicas. Once you know, fix them up fast by simply by passing the database on to scanEZ.

Comprehensive Document Tracking

See low-level replication paths

In other pages, we've mentioned mapping your replication landscape and searching for replicas of a specific database, but what about replication at the document level? What if you want to know about lower-level replication histories of documents and designs? This is almost impossible to achieve in the native Notes tools; any process of tracking down specific documents and designs across multiple replicas requires a lot of programming.

Track documents or designs, based on UNIDs, across all replicas—pinpoint their origin, creator, and more.

replicationEZ lets you go beyond database-level details into multiple document-level analysis points to track notes across all replicas of a given database.

Track up to 1000 UNIDs at once

Search for up to 1000 notes—based on their UNIDs—across all replicas of any given database.

Ever experienced "ghost" document resurrections? It's a frustrating occurrence. scanEZ's Post Replication Auditor tool lets you quickly identify these once-deleted documents that reappear due to a replication event. If you want to go further and find out where these documents came from (and maybe even who created them) replicationEZ's 'Track notes' feature can get you there.
