    Hi Gurus,


    Any clue ??

    Normally this indicates that the Replicat is processing a long running transaction. By default the Replicat will not commit the target transaction until it sees the end of the transaction in the trail (up to the default MAXTRANSOPS value, which is 100,000,000 operations). The typical options in this case are to either:


    - Allow the Replicat to complete the transaction, or

    - SEND REP <rename> FORCESTOP, change the Replicat parameters to decrease MAXTRANSOPS and restart the Replicat. This does mean though that you will be breaking the transaction boundary as it occurred on the source system though.


    In your case though, it does not seem so straightforward. Your Replicat last checkpointed on July 6, 25 days ago, so it seems like something else is going on. Are there any messages in the report file?


    Since this is a production down situation, you may want to open a case with Oracle Support so they can troubleshoot this with you.


    Best regards,
