Message Text

Replication-%s: agent %s succeeded. %s

This message indicates that a replication agent has successfully finished running. Replication uses the following agents:

  • The Snapshot Agent. This agent is used by all publications.

  • The Log Reader Agent. This agent is used by all transactional publications.

  • The Queue Reader Agent. This agent is used by transactional publications enabled for queued updating subscriptions.

  • The Distribution Agent. This agent synchronizes subscriptions to transactional and snapshot publications.

  • The Merge Agent. This agent synchronizes subscriptions to merge publications.

  • Replication maintenance jobs.

The Log Reader Agent, Queue Reader Agent, and Distribution Agent typically run continuously, whereas the other agents typically run on demand or on a schedule. If you do not expect an agent to have completed a run, check the status of the agent. For more information, see Monitor Replication Agents.
