Cooperative processing is when the MIMIX user journal processes and system journal processes work in a coordinated effort to perform replication activities for certain object types.

When configured, cooperative processing enables MIMIX to perform replication in the most efficient way by evaluating the object type and the MIMIX configuration to determine whether to use the system journal replication processes, user journal replication processes, or a combination of both. Cooperative processing also provides a greater level of data protection, data management efficiency, and high availability by ensuring the complete replication of newly created or redefined files and objects.

Object types that can be journaled to a user journal are eligible to be processed cooperatively when properly configured to MIMIX. MIMIX supports the following variations of cooperative processing for these object types:

  • Default cooperative processing for files.

  • Legacy cooperative processing for files (PF-DTA and PF38-DTA only).

  • Advanced journaling (journaled IFS objects, data areas, and data queues).

In all variations of cooperative processing, the system journal is used to replicate the following operations:

  • The creation of new objects that do not deposit an entry in a user journal when they are created.

  • Restores of objects on the source system.

  • Move and rename operates from a non-replicated library or path into a library or path that is configured for replication.
