-bn option

Sets the maximum number of BLOB bytes to compare during conflict detection.

mlsrv11 -c "connection-string" -bn size ...

When two BLOBs contain similar or identical values, the operation of comparing them for filtering or conflict detection can be expensive due to the amount of data involved. This option tells the MobiLink server to consider only the first size bytes of two BLOBs when making the comparison. The default is to compare the two BLOBs in their entirety.

Under some situations, limiting the maximum amount of data compared can speed synchronization substantially; however, it can also cause errors. For example, if two large BLOBs differ only in the last few bytes, the MobiLink server may consider them identical when in fact they are not.
