SharePlex installed items

The following describes the items that are installed during the SharePlex setup process.

SharePlex Directories

SharePlex uses two main directories:

The product directory: This is the SharePlex installation directory, where the SharePlex programs and libraries are stored.

The variable-data directory: This is the SharePlex working directory, where the queue files, log files and other components that comprise the current replication environment are stored.

Note: These directories are often referred to as productdir and vardir, respectively.

Do not remove, rename or edit any files or directories installed by SharePlex. Some directories contain hidden files that are essential for replication. Some files appear empty but must exist under their original names because they are referenced by one or more SharePlex processes. Some items in the directories are for use only under the supervision of Quest Technical Support.

Programs meant for general use in a production environment are documented in the published SharePlex documentation. If you do not find documentation for a program in a SharePlex directory, do not attempt to run it. Contact Quest Technical Support first.

The directory structure and files within the two main SharePlex directories differs slightly between the UNIX and Windows platforms. Files and directories can vary from version to version of SharePlex, but the basic structure appears as follows.

SharePlex product directory
Sub-directory Contents
BACKUP Uninstall information
bin SharePlex executable files
config Internally used content.
data Default parameter settings
doc Catalog of exception messages
install (Unix and Linux only) Scripts related to installation, licensing and upgrades
lib SharePlex shared libraries
log SharePlex log files
mks_oe Runtime installation files for third-party software used by SharePlex.
util SharePlex utilities
.app-modules (Unix and Linux only) Hidden internal directory that contains raw executables. Do not use the contents of this directory to launch processes.
.meta-inf (Unix and Linux only) Hidden internal directory that contains meta information used during the installation process.
SharePlex variable-data directory
Sub-directory Contents
config Configuration files for this installation of SharePlex.
data Status Database, configuration activation information, user-defined parameter settings, and other user-defined files that direct replication activities.
db Configuration internal database for each activation of a configuration file.
downgrd Information about SharePlex targets that are a lower version than the source.
dump Core files (if a process fails)
log SharePlex log files
rim Queue files (working data files)
save Information about active and inactive configurations.
state Information about the current state of SharePlex when a configuration is active, such as the object and sequence caches.
temp Used by the copy and append features and other SharePlex sync-related processes.
oos Stores the transactions that contain out-of-sync operations when the SP_OPO_SAVE_OOS_TRANSACTION parameter is enabled.

SharePlex Installed Objects

Much of the replication process is controlled and tracked through a series of internal objects that are installed into the source or target database during the installation of SharePlex. They are essential for SharePlex to operate, so do not alter them in any way.

NOTE: Not all objects are used for all databases. Most are used for Oracle databases. If you do not see an object in your database, it is not relevant to the database, or the information is stored internally within the SharePlex configuration. If you see an object that is in your database but not in this list, it is not being used in the current release.

MKS Toolkit

On the Windows platform, SharePlex installs the MKS Toolkit® operating environment from Parametric Technology Corporation (PTC), formerly known as Mortice Kern Systems NuTCRACKER. This software enables SharePlex to be ported to all supported platforms in a uniform manner.

SharePlex users have no interaction with the MKS Toolkit software, other than to ensure that its service is running when the SharePlex service is running. The MKS Toolkit is installed in automatic startup mode by default when it is installed during SharePlex installation.

The default folder for MKS Toolkit is C:\Program Files\MKS Toolkit, but a different folder might have been selected during installation. The MKS Toolkit files must not be moved after they are installed.

SharePlex Registry Entries

On Windows systems, SharePlex installs the following Registry entries.

  • \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432node\Quest Software\SharePlex: This contains the SharePlex environment information and is where any user-created variables must be entered, such as SP_SYS_VARDIR. Each instance of SharePlex is defined in the Registry as a port number, and each has its own set of environment variables.
  • \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432node\Mortice Kern Systems: This contains Registry entries for the MKS Toolkit® operating environment.
  • \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432node\Datafocus: This contains Registry entries for the MKS Toolkit® operating environment.
