When replicating objects, particularly documents (*DOC) and stream files (*STMF), MIMIX will obtain a lock on the object that can prevent your applications from accessing the object in a timely manner.

Some of your applications may be unable to recover from this condition and may fail in an unexpected manner.

You can reduce, or eliminate, contention for an object between MIMIX and your applications if the object retrieval processing is delayed for a predetermined amount of time before obtaining a lock on the object to retrieve it for replication.

You can use the Object retrieval delay element within the Object processing parameter on the change or create data group definition commands to set the delay time between the time the object was last changed on the source system and the time MIMIX attempts to retrieve the object on the source system.

Although you can specify this value at the data group level, you can override the data group value at the object level by specifying an Object retrieval delay value on the commands for creating or changing data group entries.

You can specify a delay time from 0 through 999 seconds. The default is 0.

If the object retrieval latency time (the difference between when the object was last changed and the current time) is less than the configured delay value, then MIMIX will delay its object retrieval processing until the difference between the time the object was last changed and the current time exceeds the configured delay value.

If the object retrieval latency time is greater than the configured delay value, MIMIX will not delay and will continue with the object retrieval processing.
