Every time a remote user adds a new customer, the remote user's pool of available primary keys is depleted by one. Periodically, you need to replenish the contents of the primary key pool table on the consolidated database and then replicate the new primary keys to the remote databases.
On the consolidated database, create a procedure to fill the primary key pool.
You cannot use a trigger to replenish the key pool, as trigger actions are not replicated.
CREATE PROCEDURE ReplenishPool() BEGIN FOR EachTable AS TableCursor CURSOR FOR SELECT table_name AS CurrTable, max(value) as MaxValue FROM KeyPool GROUP BY table_name DO FOR EachRep AS RepCursor CURSOR FOR SELECT location AS CurrRep, COUNT(*) AS NumValues FROM KeyPool WHERE table_name = CurrTable GROUP BY location DO // make sure there are 100 values. // Fit the top-up value to your // requirements WHILE NumValues < 100 LOOP SET MaxValue = MaxValue + 1; SET NumValues = NumValues + 1; INSERT INTO KeyPool (table_name, location, value) VALUES (CurrTable, CurrRep, MaxValue); END LOOP; END FOR; END FOR; END;
Insert an initial primary key value in the primary key pool for each user.
The ReplenishPool procedure requires at least one primary key value to exist for each subscriber, so that it can find the maximum value and add one to generate the next set.
To initially fill the pool, you can insert a single value for each user, and then call ReplenishPool to fill up the rest. The following example illustrates this for three remote users and a single consolidated user named Office:
INSERT INTO KeyPool VALUES( 'Customers', 40, 'user1' ); INSERT INTO KeyPool VALUES( 'Customers', 41, 'user2' ); INSERT INTO KeyPool VALUES( 'Customers', 42, 'user3' ); INSERT INTO KeyPool VALUES( 'Customers', 43, 'Office'); CALL ReplenishPool();
The ReplenishPool procedure fills the pool for each user up to 100 values. The value you need depends on how often users are inserting rows into the tables in the database.
Periodically run ReplenishPool.
The ReplenishPool procedure must be run periodically on the consolidated database to refill the pool of primary key values in the KeyPool table.
