Retrieve LOB data from the redo log when it is available there
Currently the CDC Oracle XStream engine always retrieves LOB data by doing a read on the database, even if the LOB data is inline (held in the redo log). This has a massive impact on performance and the CDC footprint
PostgreSQL as the source does not support BIT (Data type ）
We use CDC as the main real-time synchronization tool. However, when a postgresql database is encountered, when there are BIT data type tables in the table, the table cannot be copied using cdc. As a result, many data on the production line cannot...
Ability to add query tag/s on IIDR subscription level
We got an IIDR Flexrep agent agent installed that is used to replicate data from DB2 to Snowflake. It will be nice if there's a way to add query tags on subscription level so that it will allow us to track individual query or group of queries to h...
It would be good to support replications from Kafka as a source to other targets. This idea might sound strange if this were the only replication happening, but this could be part of a "cascading" replication, e.g. if data is replicated from Db2 t...
Replace DB Link between Downstream and Prod Database for 19-C TDE through IDR CDC
AS a part of 19-C TDE through IDR CDC, it uses DB Link between Primary and Downstream to call the Dictionary Build back to the Primary. IDR currently utilizes the DB link option to make the process of issuing and retrieving the StartSCN from a new...
In banking production environment, CDC agent are often across multi platform for different database, and CDC HA solution have to depend on different technology tightly with OS and different OS version, such as AIX, Linux. and the HA stack is often...
Send notification emails over secure TLS smtp protocol
In the current context of digitization, where security is extremely important and where all data transmission protocols, such as smtp, are adapting and incorporating secure communication methods, such as SSL and TLS, it seems essential to incorpor...
To find the latency breakdowns with the end to end with different components of CDC
We are trying to find the replication latency values for a subscription. We are seeing a value in the MC Performance tab for a subscription wherein we notice that it’s only the target latency value. And we would like to find the latency breakdowns...
Building out replication from IMS to PostgreSQL, we tested a refresh of 1.7 mil records which would take an estimated 11 hours. With 428 tables some over 50 mil. We need a faster way to refresh the tables. In addition to normal build out we need t...
Idea - Initiate a refresh on table without stopping the subscription
To Add an Option / Auto to initiate a Refresh on Table withAdd an option to initiate a refresh on table without stopping the subscription We replicate data from Db2 to Oracle/Kafka and vice versa and we need a zero downtime replication pipe and at...
