Defining and managing tasks

This topic describes how to design a replication task. To design a replication task, you must first be sure that you have configured at least one source endpoint and one target endpoint to work with Qlik Replicate.

Note:

The operations described in this section are relevant for Replicate tasks only.

It is also possible to customize a task by creating new tables or columns for the target endpoint or by selecting only some of the data from each column to be replicated. This is done using transformations and filters.

Note:

A number of variables affect the amount of tasks that can be run on a single Replicate Server, including the task configuration (e.g. how many tables are being replicated), the size of the source tables and the hardware configuration of the Replicate Server machine. Bearing this in mind, the number of tasks that can be run on a single Replicate Server should not exceed 100 (and may need to be significantly less depending on the aforementioned variables). Best practice is to perform load testing in a Test environment before moving to Production.

For more information, see "Replication Tasks" in the Qlik Replicate Setup and User Guide.
