Setting up replication alerts

You can enable predefined replication alerts to notify users, such as the iBase administrators at the different sites, if a Merge Agent fails because of a problem with a communications link.

The iBase administrator might want to know whether a database is not receiving and sending updates to restrict the type of work done in that database. For example, the might want to postpone specific tasks that increase the risk that conflicts occur.
Note: When you configure alerts, consider how communication links are used in your organization. If replication uses a dedicated communications link, then you might be able to send messages through email otherwise it might be preferable to send messages to a pager.
