I need to suspend transactional replication between servers (distributor is running on publisher server). I need to temporarily stop replication to do some maintenance and then resume it. What jobs(s) should I disable ? Or maybe there is some sp_... to do this ?
Thanks

With the understanding that it will suspend all jobs, you could simply turn of the SQL Server Agent until you're done.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

There's not that many, the log reader agent and the distribution agent should be disabled. Snapshot as well if you have that enabled. Keep an eye on log growth whilst the log reader is disabled.

George is correct, watch the log. The log transactions should not clear until they've been copied out of the distributor, even with log backups. So your log may grow if the system is in use
