Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Troubleshooting Guide

Using the insync Command

The insync command provides information about the state of synchronization between a supplier replica and one or more consumer replicas. This command compares the RUVs of replicas and displays the time difference or delay, in seconds, between the servers.

For example, the following command shows the state every 30 seconds:

$ insync -D cn=admin,cn=Administrators,cn=config -w mypword \
 -s portugal:1389 30

ReplicaDn         Consumer                Supplier        Delay      

dc=example,dc=com portugal:1389   0         

dc=example,dc=com portugal:1389   10         

dc=example,dc=com portugal:1389   0

You analyze the output for the points at which the replication delay stops being zero. In the above example, we see that there may be a replication problem between the consumer and the supplier, portugal, because the replication delay changes to 10, indicating that the consumer is 10 seconds behind the supplier. We should continue to watching the evolution of this delay. If it stays more or less stable or decreases, we can conclude there is not a problem. However, a replication halt is probable when the delay increases over time.
