MIMIX supports a variety of scenarios for data distribution and data management including bi-directional data flow, file combining, file sharing, and file merging. MIMIX also supports data distribution techniques such as broadcasting, and cascading. Often, this support requires a combination of advanced replication techniques as well as customizing. These techniques require additional planning before you configure MIMIX. You may need to consider the technical aspects of implementing a technique as well as how your business practices may be affected. Consider the following:

  • Can each system involved modify the data?

  • Do you need to filter data before sending to it to another system?

  • Do you need to implement multiple techniques to accomplish your goal?

  • Do you need customized exit programs?

  • Do any potential collision points exist and how will each be resolved?

MIMIX user journal replication provides filtering options within the data group definition. Also, MIMIX provides options within the data group definition and for individual data group file entries for resolving most collision points. Additionally, collision resolution classes allow you to specify different resolution methods for each collision point.

Note: Some of the described scenarios and techniques require the use of keyed replication, which is not a shipped default value for new data groups and cannot be specified in data groups that use multithreaded database apply processing.
