Detailed Description

Replication begins at the start index and can be stopped by pressing CTRL+C.

noteNote:

It may take several seconds for all threads to stop once you have pressed CTRL+C.

If full replication is interrupted, check the log file for the last successful entry and restart using the StartAtIndex parameter.
