Truncating the Replication Agent Transaction Log Manually

If automatic log truncation is disabled, you must periodically truncate the Replication Agent transaction log manually.

To manually truncate the transaction log:

  1. Log in to the Replication Agent instance with the administrator login.
  2. Truncate the Replication Agent transaction log:

    The pdb_truncate_xlog command is asynchronous; it does not return success or failure, unless an immediate error occurs.

See the Replication Agent Reference Manual for more information about the pdb_truncate_xlog command.

Note: As an alternative to the Replication Agent automatic log truncation feature, use a scheduler utility to execute the pdb_truncate_xlog command in a script.
