Pull vs. Push Subscriptions? Which one should you use?

Published On: 2009-05-07By:

This is a “it depends” sort of question.

These are my recommendations, your mileage may vary.

Your distributor is on the same system as your publisher – Pull is probably for you

Your Subscribers are a very high transaction count – Push is probably for you

You need to manually copy the subscription over the network to the subscriber and load it up from the local drive – Pull is probably for you

Your distributor is on a separate from the publisher – Push is probably for you

The distributor is on the same server as your subscriber – Either, as the agent will be running on the distributor either way

You have a slow network link – Either, slow networks aren’t overcome with either technique

If you have specific’s you’d like to ask about, post your questions below, or in the ITKE forum.
