In the earlier post we saw a case of GoldenGate Conflict Resolution using the Trusted Site Or Trusted Source method where one site is dedicated as the trusted or master site and in a CDR scenario will always prevail over other sites participating in the Active-Active Replication.

We saw how an UPDATE statement conflict was detected and resolved with the trail file send from the trusted site (Site A) overwriting the update made on Site B and on Site A, the trail file which was sent from Site B was ignored.

Let us now look at a CDR situation which is resolved by using the USEMIN clause in the RESOLVECONFLICT parameter.

The USEMIN keyword means that If the value of the conflict resolution column (in this case LAST_DML) recorded in the trail file is less than the value of the column in the database, then apply the update from the trail file, else ignore the update recorded in the trail file

This is how the replicat parameter file will look like on both sites. The same extract and data pump parameter files as deesribed in the earlier posts will be used for this example.

Site A

GGSCI (pdemvrhl061) 3> view params rep1

REPLICAT rep1
ASSUMETARGETDEFS
USERID ggate, PASSWORD ggate
DISCARDFILE /u01/app/ggate/discard.txt, append,
MAP sh.inventory, TARGET sh.inventory,
COMPARECOLS (ON UPDATE ALL, ON DELETE ALL),
RESOLVECONFLICT (UPDATEROWEXISTS,
(DEFAULT, USEMIN (last_dml)));

Site B

GGSCI (pdemvrhl062) 2> view params rep2

REPLICAT rep2
ASSUMETARGETDEFS
USERID ggate, PASSWORD ggate
DISCARDFILE /u01/app/ggate/discard.txt, append,
MAP sh.inventory, TARGET sh.inventory,
COMPARECOLS (ON UPDATE ALL, ON DELETE ALL),
RESOLVECONFLICT (UPDATEROWEXISTS,
(DEFAULT, USEMIN (last_dml)));

On Site A
update inventory
set QTY_IN_STOCK=11 where prod_id=101;

commit;

On Site B
update inventory
set QTY_IN_STOCK=1 where prod_id=101;

commit;

End Result

select * from inventory;

   PROD_ID PROD_CATEGORY        QTY_IN_STOCK LAST_DML
---------- -------------------- ------------ --------------------------------------

       101 Football                        1 11-APR-13 03.28.01.388828 PM

Update performed on Site B has prevailed in this case.

Let us examine the trail files on both sites using logdump utility and see why.

Trail File on Site A (sent from source Site B)

Name: SH.INVENTORY
After  Image:                                             Partition 4   G  e

Trail File on Site B (sent from source Site A)

2013/04/11 15:28:01.959.870 FieldComp            Len    56 RBA 3461

0000 0007 0000 0003 3130 3100 0200 0600 0000 0231 | ........101........1

LAST_DML Time in Extract Trail file on Site A is lower (15:28:01.388828000) – so the value for QTY_IN_STOCK which is 1 in that trail file got applied and the trail file on Site B (sent from Site A) which had the value of 11 for QTY_IN_STOCK was not applied.

If we use the stats command with the reportcdr option, we can that CDR has taken place and an UPDATEROWEXISTS tyoe of conflict was resolved.
