Specifies the number of retries if the download fails because of conflicts.
When the extended option LockTables is set to OFF (preventing dbmlsync from obtaining locks on the tables being synchronized), it is possible for operations to be applied to the database between the time the upload is built and the time that the download is applied. If these changes affect rows that will also be changed by the download, dbmlsync will consider this to be a conflict and will not apply the download stream. When this occurs dbmlsync retries the entire synchronization. This option controls the number of retries that are performed.
This option is useful only if the LockTables option is OFF, which is not the default.
The default is -1 (retries should continue indefinitely).
This option has a short form and long form: you can use cr or ConflictRetries.
You can also store extended options in the database. For more information about dbmlsync extended options, see Introduction to dbmlsync extended options.
The following dbmlsync command line illustrates how you can set this option when you start dbmlsync:
dbmlsync -e "cr=5"
The following SQL statement illustrates how you can store this option in the database:
CREATE SYNCHRONIZATION SUBSCRIPTION TO sales_publication FOR ml_user1 OPTION cr='5';
