Tracking entries provide status of IFS objects, data areas, and data queues that are replicated using MIMIX advanced journaling. Object tracking entries represent data areas or data queues. IFS tracking entries represent IFS objects. IFS tracking entries also track the file identifier (FID) of the object on the source and target systems.

You can synchronize the object represented by a tracking entry by using the synchronize option available on the Work with DG Object Tracking Entries display or the Work with DG IFS Tracking Entries display. For object tracking entries, the option calls the Synchronize Object (SYNCOBJ) command. For IFS tracking entries, the option calls the Synchronize IFS Object (SYNCIFS) command.

The contents, attributes, and authorities of the item are synchronized between the source and target systems.

Notes: 

  • Before starting data groups for the first time, any existing objects to be replicated from the source system must be synchronized to the target system.

  • If tracking entries do not exist, you must create them by doing one of the following:

  • Change the data group IFS entry or object entry configuration as needed and end and restart the data groups.

  • Load tracking entries using the Load DG IFS Tracking Entries (LODDGIFSTE) or Load DG Obj Tracking Entries (LODDGOBJTE) commands. See Loading tracking entries.

  • Tracking entries may not exist for existing IFS objects, data areas, or data queues that have been configured for replication with advanced journaling since the last start of the data group.

  • For status changes to be effective for a tracking entry that is being synchronized, the data group must be active. When the apply session receives notification that the object represented by the tracking entry is synchronized successfully, the tracking entry status changes to *ACTIVE.
