How to: View Information and Perform Tasks for the Agents Associated With a Publication (Replication Monitor)

Replication Monitor provides the Warnings and Agents tab, which includes information about the agents associated with the selected publication. This tab displays information about all agents used by the publication and allows you to specify warnings and alerts. The Distribution Agent and Merge Agent are associated with subscriptions; for more information, see How to: View Information and Perform Tasks for the Agents Associated With a Subscription (Replication Monitor). For Distributors running versions prior to Microsoft SQL Server 2005, this tab is labeled Agents and only displays information about agents used by the publication.

This tab displays information about the following agents:

  • The Snapshot Agent, which is used by all publications.
  • The Log Reader Agent, which is used by all transactional publications.
  • The Queue Reader Agent, which is used by transactional publications enabled for queued updating subscriptions.

To view more information about the options on this tab, click Help on the menu bar. For information about starting Replication Monitor, see How to: Start Replication Monitor (Replication Monitor).
