    Unanswered: push subscriber in merge replication

    I am using merge replication with a push subscription type. I am wondering if the updates of the tables on the subscriber side are push to the publisher from the subscriber or pulled from the subscriber by the publisher when the syncronisation takes place. this makes a big diferrence for me and i can't find the answer to this question anywhere...

    if anyone could answer it would be really appreciated

    Thanks

    Data Synchronization is performed by the Merge agent, wherever it runs from. In your case it's the Publisher.

    The Merge agent runs on the publisher but my question is : does the merge agent pull information from the subcriber or the subscriber push the information to the merge agent ??

    Well, it's a PULL if you look at it this way. The Agent runs on the Publisher, connects to Subscriber (see the agent's job definition in Scheduled Tasks), etc.
