Pausing and resuming replication

You can pause replication temporarily for the source (outgoing) or target (incoming) Cores.

The option to pause replication is only available when replication is active. The option to resume replication is only available if replication is paused.

Complete the steps in the following procedure to pause or resume replication.

  1. Open the Rapid Recovery Core Console, and from the icon bar, click [Replication] (Replication).
    The Replication page appears.
  2. To pause replication for all replicated machines, do the following:
    1. Click the checkbox at the top of the summary table to select the source or target Core.
    2. Click Pause from the menu preceding the summary table.
      Replication for all protected machines in the selected Core is paused.
  3. To pause replication for only certain machines, do the following:
    1. Click the [Expand] arrow to the right of any Core.
      The view expands to show each of the protected machines from the selected Core that are being replicated.
    2. Click in the first column to select each machine for which you want to pause replication. Click any selection again to clear the checkbox for machines you do not want to pause.
    3. Click Pause from the menu preceding the summary table.
      Replication for the selected protected machines is paused.
  4. To resume replication for all replicated machines, do the following:
    1. Click the checkbox at the top of the summary table to select the source or target Core.
    2. Click Resume from the menu at the top of the summary table.
      Replication for all protected machines in the selected Core is resumed.
  5. To resume replication for only certain machines, do the following:
    1. Click the [Expand] arrow to the right of any Core.
      The view expands to show each of the protected machines from the selected Core that are being replicated.
    2. Click in the first column to select each machine for which you want to resume replication. Click any selection again to clear the checkbox for machines you do not want to resume.
    3. Click Resume from the menu at the top of the summary table.
      Replication for the selected protected machines is resumed.

Forcing replication

From the source Core, you can force replication at any time, instead of waiting for a replication job to queue after a specific event such as a backup or attachability check.

Complete the steps in the following procedure to force replication on either the source or the target Core.

  1. On the source Core, open the Rapid Recovery Core Console, and from the icon bar, click [Replication] (Replication).

    The Replication page appears.

  2. Do one of the following:
    • To force replication on a source Core, from the Outgoing Replication pane, select a Core, and from the menu at the top of the summary table, click [Force]Force.
    • To force replication on a target Core, from the Incoming Replication pane, select a Core, and from the menu at the top of the summary table, click [Force]Force.
    The Force Replication dialog box appears.
  3. Optionally, if you want to repair any orphaned chains of recovery points, select restore orphaned recovery point chains.
  4. To confirm, in the Force Replication dialog box, click Yes.
    The dialog box closes, and replication is forced.

Managing settings for outgoing replication

The changes made to these settings affect the data transfer to all target Cores associated with this source Core.

  1. On the source Core, open the Rapid Recovery Core Console, and from the icon bar, click [Replication] (Replication).
    The Replication page appears.
  2. In the Outgoing Replication pane, at the top of the summary table, click [Settings] (Settings).
    The Replication Settings dialog box appears.
  3. In the Replication Settings dialog box, edit the replication settings as described in the following table.
    Table 1. Replication settings
    Option Description
    Cache lifetime (seconds) Specify the amount of time between each target Core status request performed by the source Core.
    Volume image session timeout (minutes) Specify the amount of time the source Core spends attempting to transfer a volume image to the target Core.
    Maximum parallel streams Specify the number of network connections permitted to be used by a single protected machine to replicate that machine’s data at one time.
    Maximum transfer speed (MB/s) Specify the speed limit for transferring the replicated data.
    Maximum transfer data size (GB) Specify the maximum size in GB for transferring blocks of replicated data.
    Restore Defaults Select this option to change all replication settings to the system defaults.
    Note: Take note of any customized settings before selecting this option. You will not be prompted to confirm this action
  4. When satisfied, click Save to save the replication settings and close the dialog box.

    The Settings dialog box appears.
  3. Edit any of the options described in the following table.
    Table 1. Target Core settings
    Option Description
    Host Enter the host for the target Core.
    Port Enter a port for the target Core to use for communication with the source Core.
