Replication Server stores messages in stable queues, which are stored on disk partitions. Inbound queues store messages received from Replication Agents; outbound queues store messages to be transmitted to data servers or other Replication Servers.
Use rs_init to create the initial partitions for Replication Server. For more information about working with partitions in rs_init, see the Replication Server installation and configuration guides.
create partition – to make a partition available to Replication Server. You must create a partition before you can add it.
create partition replaces the existing add partition command. For backward compatibility, add partition is still supported as an alias for create partition but it will be depreciated in the future.
alter partition – to change the size of a partition .
drop partition – to remove a partition from Replication Server.
For more information about stable queues and partitions, see Partitions for Stable Queues in the Replication Server Administration Guide Volume 1.
