We are using dpAgent for remote tables with real-time access. I observed that the delta suddenly stopped working for one of the flows though it is active in the data integration monitor. For the other two flows, real-time access is not getting enabled. The job runs for 3 hours resulting in a time-out error attached below.
Currently, our datacenter team is looking into the dpAgent logs but I feel that the functionality of a remote table with real-time access is too fragile compared to replication flows. Overall, dpAgent is not a very stable component in the Datasphere landscape. Can experts throw some light on this?
Hi mandardamle ,
the DPAgent is indeed a component that can be fragile.
Due to insufficient sizing or wrong usage it can crash. From seeing your screenshto it could be that your initial load is too big because it takes 3 hours. You can decrease the load by partitioning or decreasing the data amount.
You are correct, repilcation flows are more resilient and are also the integration option that SAP will focus on in the future. So if possible, integrate data through replciation flows.
