Gravic is pleased to announce that on August 21, 2012, Dr. Bruce Holenstein, Paul J. Holenstein, and Dr. Bill Highleyman were awarded US Patent Number 8,250,029 entitled, “Method for ensuring replication from a change queue of a source database to a target database when transaction load exceeds data path by spawning a new transaction path between the change queue and the target database.” The patent teaches how to handle communication overload situations in a graceful manner. The abstract reads: “A method is provided for replicating transaction data from a source database to a target database wherein the transaction data is communicated from a change queue associated with the source database to the target database. An initial path is provided between the change queue and the target database for transaction data to flow. The initial path has a maximum transaction load capacity. It is then detected whether the current transaction load is close or equal to the maximum transaction load capacity of the initial path. If so, another path is provided between the change queue and the target database.”
