Real-time synchronization is performed with the
realtime-sync utility polls the source server for changes and
synchronizes the destination entries immediately. Once the server determines that a
change should be synchronized, it fetches the full entry from the source. It then
searches for the corresponding entry in the destination endpoint using correlation rules
and applies the minimum set of changes to synchronize the attributes. The server fetches
and compares the full entries to make sure it does not synchronize any old data from the
After a synchronization topology is configured, run
synchronize the endpoints, and then run
realtime-sync to start global
realtime-sync tool is used for the following tasks:
- Start or stop synchronization globally or for specific sync pipes only.
- Set a start point at which synchronization should begin such as the beginning or end of the change log, at a specified change number, at a specified change sequence number, or at a specified time frame in the change log.
