Command Console

Follow

The Dbvisit Replicate command console is central to Dbvisit Replicate and can be used create a new replication, view the replication process and also to control and change the replication settings.

The Dbvisit Replicate command console is started by running the dbvrep program.

The Dbvisit Replicate command console can be started in the following ways:

  1. Starting the Dbvisit Replicate command console without a DDC file. This brings up an empty command console to run the setup wizard to initiate a new replication.
  2. Run the start-console.sh or start-console.bat script to start the console with a DDC file. This is the preferred method after a replication has been configured through the setup wizard. The setup wizard creates the start-console.sh or start-console.bat scripts. 
  3. Starting the Dbvisit Replicate command console with a DDC file. This connects to an existing replication and will show the progress and overview of the replication. From the command console, the replication can be changed, paused, stopped, new tables can be added, conflict handlers can be configured and current conflicts can be resolved.
