Hi,

Running v9.1 FP 6 (i know, i know!!) on Suse 10 Linux.

We have 2 tier SQL Replication, the 1st tier target Apply uses a Pull architecture. The Sleep Minutes in the IBMSNAP.SUBS_SET Apply tables is currently set to 1 minute.

I want to set it to at least 5.

When I set it to >5, it maxes out at 5. ie. i can set it to 10 and it still cycles and sleeps every 5. i can set it to <5 and it works ok, except it seems to "align itself" mysteriously every 10 minutes, thus (a 3 minute setting):

2013-11-26-02.53.00.230000 <CPREST(01/00)> ASN1044I APPLY "MD163_9QLF" : "WorkerThread". The Apply program will become inactive for "2" minutes and "59" seconds.
2013-11-26-02.56.00.296000 <CPREST(01/00)> ASN1044I APPLY "MD163_9QLF" : "WorkerThread". The Apply program will become inactive for "2" minutes and "59" seconds.

Can anyone suggest what may be governing these two behaviours ?
Other settings :
Capture Sleep Interval = 5 secs (the time Capture sleeps after processing last of logs before starting again)

Please let me know if i can provide any other information that might help members and posters.

Thanks a bunch.
