Received Generations Goes Down RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are running merge replication on SQL Server 2008 R2 with 60 web-sync, pull subscribers (all 2008 R2).  The publication uses dynamic filters (with join filters) based on HOST_NAME(). 

    We have been trying to solve the problem of slow sync times and we have observed something we were not expecting.  During a sync we watched the recgen on the publisher increase steadily as a subscriber uploaded it's data.  When the subscriber started it's next sync the recgen jump down by several thousand before starting to clock up again causing the upload to take much longer.  Is this behaviour normal?

    Thanks in advance.
