1. What is Oracle GoldenGate Veridata?
Oracle GoldenGate Veridata is a heterogeneous data comparing utility. It can compare data, report the differences and repair the out-of-sync data. The product can also send an alert when the data are out-of-sync .
- Veridata Server: compares data, confirms out-of-sync data, repairs data and produces reports. It also coordinates the tasks. Within a Veridata server, there are:
- Veridata Repository: is a database, either a Oracle Database, a MySQL or MS SQL Server database, to store the metadata.
- Web Interface: allows users to interact with the server through the Web User Interface.
- Command Line Utility: is called the Vericom command-line client, which can be used to configure and run the tasks.
- Veridata Agent: interacts with the source or target databases to fetch and return blocks of data rows, the column-level detail, and execute updates for repairs. The agent is started at the request of the Veridata server. Oracle GoldenGate Veridata agent is a Java agent for most of the heterogeneous databases. A C-based agent is provided for the NonStop database and is controlled by the Oracle GoldenGate Veridata Manager for that platform.
