  • Patent number: 11030216
    Abstract: A mechanism is provided for replicating non-supported data types using an existing replication format supported by an existing replication system. Responsive to detecting an application writing data to a local storage that is to be replicated to the secondary site, the input/output (I/O) operation being performed by the application is intercepted. Data of the I/O operation in a non-supported format is converted to a format supported by the existing replication system. A replication log record is generated for the data in the format supported by the existing replication system. The data described by the replication log record for the data is then stored in a storage device at the secondary site.

  • Publication number: 20210096959
    Abstract: Aspects of the invention include a continuous availability for workload and site switches with no data loss at unlimited distances in an active-active sites configuration. A non-limiting example computer-implemented method includes synchronously replicating commit records of changed workload data, by a processor, from an active site to a bunker site upon a workload data commit. The method asynchronously replicates committed transactions on changed workload data, by the processor, from the bunker site to a recovery site.

  • Publication number: 20210056120
    Abstract: In-stream data load in a replication environment includes extracting source data from a source data store that is in a replication relationship with a target data store. A replication facility replicates to a target system changes made to the source data store. The replication facility includes a replication engine that reads a replication log into which the replication facility records the changes and sends the changes to the target system for application to the target data store. The extracting is performed by an extract utility separate from the replication engine. The in-stream data load also includes injecting, by the extract utility, the extracted source data into the replication log in-line with the changes recorded in the replication log by the replication facility and according to a format such that the replication engine can read and send the source data to the target system.

  • Patent number: 10599633
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes, by a streaming analytics component, identifying a source database table and a target database table. The target database table includes one or more target database rows and one or more target database columns. The method further includes identifying a change stream including a plurality of row-level modifications that cause the target database table to replicate the source database table. The method further includes determining that each row-level modification affects one or more common columns of the target database columns, wherein the common columns exhibit one or more common values for those of the target database rows that are affected by the row-level modifications. The method further includes generating, based on the common values and the common columns, a reconstructed modification statement and sending the reconstructed modification statement to an apply component. A corresponding computer program product and computer system are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10585878
    Abstract: Provided are a computer program product, system, and method for performing conflict analysis of replicated changes among nodes in a network A first node and a second node include a first instance and second instance of a data set, respectively. The second node receives a first transaction replicated from the first node, applied to the first instance of the data set. The second node determines a conflict that would occur between the replicated first transaction and a second transaction applied to the second instance of the data set. A conflict policy is applied at the second node to perform a first action in response to determining the conflict. The conflict policy is applied to the first node to perform a second action at the first node to handle the conflict when the first node receives a replication of the second transaction to the second instance of the data set.

  • Patent number: 10334055
    Abstract: In dynamic multi-session management, a communication layer monitors network indicators during sending of application messages over a session established between sender and receiver nodes. Based on the network indicators, the communication layer determines that the session has insufficient bandwidth. In response, at least one session is added between sender and receiver nodes, where a plurality of parallel sessions is established between sender and receiver nodes. The application messages are sent over the plurality of sessions. The communication layer continues to monitor the network indicators, and when the plurality of sessions is determined to have insufficient bandwidth, adds at least one more session between sender and receiver nodes. The communication layer further determines, based on the network indicators, whether the plurality of sessions have excess bandwidth If so, one or more sessions are removed.
