Hi, have a question. We have snapshot replication set up going from production to lower level servers. The sizes of the databases are very different from production to lower environments. Can you help explain? How can i figure out where differences are:

Production: 76GB
Lower Level 1: 22GB
Lower Level 2: 16GB

Data appears to be same but as you see the sizes are drastically different. please help explain.

I'm not sure if this is the same with snapshot replication as with regular transactional replication but...

With transactional replication you can choose whether to replicate indexes or not. It may be worth checking your publication settings to see whether you're replicating indexes.

The other thing is it could come down to fragmentation of indexes. if your source is heavily fragmented then it may be consuming more space than is necessary.

Thanks,


Simon

In addtion to the above which is the most likely scenario. Are you using any filters in your indexes and are you copying all attributes as part of your articles?

Great catch. I hadn't thought of that.
