2 Replication Tables 

TimesTen stores metadata about replication in replication tables in your database.

Your applications can read the replication tables, but it cannot update them. If your application defines a table with the same name as a replication table, then your application can read a replication table by prefixing the replication table name with TTREP. For example, SELECT * FROM TTREP.REPTABLES selects rows from the REPTABLES replication table.

Information specific to replication tables:

Replication tables reserved for internal or future use

The TTREP.CLIENTFAILOVER table is reserved for internal or future use.

Required privileges to access replication tables

By default PUBLIC has SELECT privileges on various system and replication tables and EXECUTE privileges on various PL/SQL objects. You can see the list of objects by using this query:

SELECT * FROM sys.dba_tab_privs WHERE grantee='PUBLIC';

The ADMIN or SELECT ANY TABLE privilege is required to access other system and replication tables and views.


TTREP.REPELEMENTS

The REPELEMENTS table describes elements in a replication scheme.

Columns

Column name Type Description
REPLICATION_NAME TT_CHAR(31) NOT NULL Name for a replication scheme
REPLICATION_OWNER TT_CHAR(31) NOT NULL The replication scheme's owner
ELEMENT_NAME TT_CHAR(31) NOT NULL The replication name for this element

This is logically different from the DS_OBJ_NAME of the underlying data base object. For example, the ELEMENT_NAME for a replicated table may differ from the table name. This name must be unique in a replication scheme.

ELEMENT_TYPE TT_CHAR(1) NOT NULL The type of this replication element

'T' – table

'D' – database

'S' – sequence

OWNED_BY_SYSTEM BINARY(1) NOT NULL 0x01 - if element is maintained by the system and cannot be directly referenced by SQL statements

0x00 - if element is defined and maintained by a user

MASTER_ID TT_BIGINT NOT NULL The TT_STORE_ID for the master or propagator of this element
OLD_MASTER_ID TT_BIGINT NOT NULL The TT_STORE_ID for the immediately preceding MASTER for this element

-1 if none

IS_PROPAGATOR BINARY(1) NOT NULL Propagator flag

0 - The MASTER_ID identifies a true MASTER database.

1 - The MASTER_ID identifies a PROPAGATOR.

DS_OBJ_NAME TT_CHAR(31) NOT NULL If this replication refers to a single, underlying data base object: name of the object

Specifically, it is the name of the replicated table if ELEMENT_TYPE = 'T'.

It is NULL if ELEMENT_TYPE = 'D'.

DS_OBJ_OWNER.DS_OBJ_NAME need not be unique in a replication scheme, but each occurrence must be associated with a distinct ELEMENT_NAME.

DS_OBJ_OWNER TT_CHAR(31) NOT NULL The owner of the replication element – if defined

NULL otherwise

This is always the owner of the table. DS_OBJ_OWNER.DS_OBJ_NAME need not be unique in a replication scheme, but each occurrence must be associated with a distinct ELEMENT_NAME.

DS_OBJ_ID TT_INTEGER for 32-bit systems

TT_BIGINT for 64 bit systems

Object ID or flag

If the ELEMENT_TYPE = 'T':

Table ID - If the table is in the owning (master or propagator) database, then this is the table ID.

1 - Table is in the subscriber database.

If the ELEMENT_TYPE = 'D':

0 - Database is a master or propagator.

1 - Database is a subscriber.

NULL - Database has been migrated, restored, or upgraded from an earlier version.

DURABLE_TRANSMIT BINARY(1) NOT NULL Durable transaction status

0 - Transactions are not made durable before they are transmitted.

1 - Transactions are made durable before they are transmitted (default).

CONFLICT_CHECKS BINARY(8) NOT NULL A bit map indicating which conflict detectors are enabled

0x0000000000000000 - no configured conflict detector (default)

0x0000000000000001 - ROW TIMESTAMP conflict detector

This column must be of type BINARY(8) and permit NULL values.

TS_EXCEPTION_ACTION TT_CHAR(1) NOT NULL The action to take upon detecting a conflict by a timestamp-based detector

The action is specified by the ON EXCEPTION clause in the CHECK CONFLICTS clause of a CREATE REPLICATION statement. They appear in this column as:

'\0' - action not defined

'N' - NO ACTION

'R' - roll back transaction (default)

TS_UPDATE_RULE TT_CHAR(1) NOT NULL The rule for maintaining the timestamp for a timestamp-based conflict detector

'\0' - rule not defined

'U' - by user

'S' - by system (default)

TS_REPORT_FILE TT_VARCHAR(1000) NOT INLINE The name of the file to which the replication agent reports timestamp conflicts

This file is specified by the REPORT TO clause in the CHECK CONFLICTS clause of a CREATE REPLICATION statement.

IS_MASTER_PROPAGATOR BINARY(1) Indication of whether the database is both a master and a propagator
EXTERNAL_DB TT_CHAR(1) Indication of replication to a database that is not TimesTen

NULL - no replication to another kind of database

O - replication to Oracle database, which occurs in a TimesTen database with an AWT cache group

REPORT_FORMAT TT_CHAR(1) The report format for the replication conflict file

'S' - standard format

'X' - XML format
