Switch approval is set to manual. So user waited for a long time for the Post Count to slow down before switch because he thinks that there are incoming transactions but even after the switch, the activity count is zero which means no transactions. So what is Post count counting?
According to the User Guide
Post Count—This field displays the number of posting sessions that have occurred so far. (A posting session is a single execution of the stored procedure and OCI calls that are used to post live transactions to the copy table.) If the number for Post Count is greater than the number for Current, this means that QSA has attempted one or more posting sessions when there were no transactions to be posted.
The question is during the Live Reorg run, the post count keep on increasing but from the application, there is no activities related to that particular reorg table. As such, user are delaying the table switch before application shutdown to avoid any cancellation of batch jobs.
So in general, is it considered safe to switch if outstanding transactions is 0?
