Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication.dll)

public enum AbortPolicy

Member nameDescription

The agent thread initiating the shutdown may actively abort other running agent threads.


Agent threads are only terminated at well-defined locations after a shutdown is in progress, such as before or after query execution and message logging.

An unanticipated shutdown can occur because of a system runtime failure or a user initiated abort request.

The policy should be chosen depending on application state requirements. An asynchronous policy may be more responsive during a shutdown but can require the use of other techniques to return the runtime environment to an expected state. A synchronous policy can help avoid inadvertent interruption of updates to these critical global runtime states when a replication agent is invoked synchronously from an application.
