This post provides a sample example of Oracle GoldenGate parameter files that can be used to configure Oracle GoldenGate replication setup in line with recommended best practices. The example is generic and can serve as a starting point for a more customized Oracle GoldenGate implementation.
The GLOBALS file stores parameters that relate to the GoldenGate instance as a whole, as opposed to runtime parameters for a specific process.
Process name: Replicat
Description: The Replicat process reads data extracted by the Extract process and applies it to target tables or prepares it for use by another application, such as a load application.
Globals parameter file (Sample)
-- Specifies the name of the Manager process when it is installed as a Windows service. MGRSERVNAME [mgr service name] -- Specifies a default checkpoint table CHECKPOINTTABLE [owner.tablename] -- Specifies the name of the schema that contains the database objects that support DDL -- synchronization for Oracle GGSCHEMA [schema name] -- Specifies a non-default name for the DDL history table that supports DDL -- synchronization for Oracle. DDLTABLE [table name] -- Specifies a non-default name for the DDL marker table that supports DDL -- synchronization for Oracle MARKERTABLE [table name]
