resilience to network error

I have 2 fairly big databases (17 GB) to compare over the network. Since the network here gets hiccups once in a while I usually get a network error and the tool stops before finishing. Is there a way to work around that or is it a feature you would consider implementing?

Thanks

    Hello Matthieu,

    Not knowing the specific cause of the error, it's hard to say. I do not think there is a lot we can do to work around broken network connections in most cases. The solution would be to fix the network. The only thing we have an influence over is the command timeout, which for Data Compare, is ten minutes.

    do you have retry logic after the operation has failed?

    Nope. Once the connection is broken, the software throws an error (as you're probably familiar).
