Activity tab

Displays graphs that show the amount of inbound and outbound traffic being received and sent by the domain controller to its replication partners.

DRA Activity

Amount of inbound/outbound replication traffic the domain controller is sending and receiving from its replication partners.

The graph shows occasional bursts of high activity during replication events followed by periods of zero activity where no replication is taking place. Inbound activity is shown in orange. Outbound activity is shown in blue.

File Replication I/O Activity

Amount of Kbytes/sec that have been read from the Active Directory® database by the NTFRS or DFSR process (depending on the type of replication service used). Read activity is shown in orange, and write activity is shown in blue.

File Replication CPU Usage

Percentage of the CPU used by the NTFRS or DFSR process (depending on the type of replication service used).

Queues tab

Displays graphs that show:

Replication Queues

Number of directory synchronizations queued for the domain controller, but not yet processed. It helps determine the replication backlog; the higher the counter, the higher the backlog.

The Objects series indicates the number of Active Directory objects queued for synchronization by the Directory Replication Agent (DRA).

The Files series indicates the number of files queued for replication by the NTFRS or DFSR file replication service.

Remaining Objects

Number of object updates remaining in the current replication update packet that have not been applied on the local server.

Objects Applied per Second

Rate at which the objects are applied to the Active Directory database.

Directory Partners tab

The Directory Partners tab displays the following information about inbound and outbound replication links.

Replication Partner

The name of the domain controller with which the server is replicating.

Link Direction

Shows whether replication is inbound (coming to the server from this replication partner) or outbound (going to the indicated replication partner.)

Site

The name of the site where the replication partner is located.

IP Address

The IP address of the replication partner.

Enabled/Disabled

Shows whether the connection to the indicated replication partner is enabled or disabled.

Transport Type

The transport type being used for replication.

Options

Shows whether or not the replication link was automatically generated by the Knowledge Consistency Checker (KCC).

Consecutive Failures

The number of consecutive replication errors that have occurred.

Naming Context

The naming context that can be replicated between the replication partner and the currently connected domain controller.

Last Status

The result of the last replication attempt.

Last Replication Attempt

The time at which the last replication was attempted.

Last Successful Replication

The time at which the last successful replication was completed.

Consecutive Failures

The number of consecutive replication errors that have occurred.

FRS Replicas tab

The FRS Replicas tab displays the following information about FRS Replicas.

Table 139. FRS Replicas tab

Replica Name

The display name of the FRS Replica.

Replica Path

The path to the FRS Replica.

Replica Size (MB)

The path to the replica staging folder. This folder acts as a queue for changed files and folders to be replicated to downstream partners.

Replica Staging Path

The size of the FRS Replica.

Replica Staging Size (MB)

The size of the replica staging folder.
