Replication - How to tell if transaction has been applied to a subscriber

  • Hi SSC,

    How can you tell that a transaction has been applied to a subscriber via the distribution database? I don't see a flag in any of these tables which are joined by various fields...






  • I found the answer to my own question. For others wondering, connect to the subscriber and run the following:

    USE <subscriber_db>


    SELECT publisher,publication, distribution_agent,transaction_timestamp

    FROM dbo.MSreplication_subscriptions

    The transaction_timestamp value contains the Log Sequence Number (LSN) for the last transaction applied by replication. Multiple rows per publication indicates parallel distribution streams (a non default setting)


  • The replication Monitor also helps. Rightclick your pubication and select Launch Replication Monitor.
