Publisher Information, Subscription Watch List (Snapshot Publication, SQL Server 2005 and Later)
The Subscription Watch List tab is available for Distributors running SQL Server 2005 and later versions; it is intended to display information on subscriptions from all publications available at the selected Publisher. You can filter the list of subscriptions to see errors, warnings, and any poorly performing subscriptions. This tab provides a single location for an administrator to monitor all replication activity at a Publisher: Replication Monitor displays all subscriptions that require attention, based on the selected replication type and on the option chosen in the Show drop-down list box. Because the items displayed on this tab are based on current status and performance, subscriptions are displayed on this page only if they match the option in the Show list box at the current time.
For more detailed information and tasks related to a subscription, right-click the row for that subscription, and then click an option on the shortcut menu. To change the way that the grid displays data, right-click the grid, and then click one of the following options:
Sort: Sort on one or more columns in the Sort Columns dialog box.
Choose Columns to Show: Select which columns to display and the order in which to display them in the Choose Columns dialog box.
Filter: Filter rows in the grid based on column values in the Filter Settings dialog box.
Clear Filter: Clear any filter settings for the grid.
Filter settings are specific to each grid. Column selection and sorting are applied to all grids of the same type, such as the publications grid for each Publisher.
