What is Trickle Loading?

Trickle loading is a performance improvement technique. It starts with a full initial replication on Invantive Data Replicator. The source system informs the Invantive infrastructure of each and every change.

The changes come “trickling“ in on an individual change basis. These changes to the data can be downloaded are applied to the full data set. Trickle loading is available for a limited number of tables, depending on the capabilities of the platform connected to.

Using trickle loading, replication duration can be reduced by a factor 100 or more.
