Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Replication retries

Indicates the number of times the replication operation was retried on the secondary cache server.


A low value is desired for this measure. If the value of this measure increases suddenly/gradually, then, it indicates that the response from the secondary cache server is becoming poor. This would invariably affect the time taken to complete the replication operation. Administrators should therefore, carefully analyze the real reason behind a large volume of replication operation retries and rectify problems before end users start complaining.
