Default: False
Range: True or False
Applies to: Command-line client (dbutility) only

Note: This parameter is specific to replication and applies only to the command-line client. The command-line -F option, which allows you to specify the AFN after which to stop, overrides this parameter.

The stop_after_given_afn parameter enables you to stop processing after an externally specified audit file has been processed. Note that you must store the value of the audit file number in the stop_afn column of the DATASOURCES entry using data source tools external to dbutility. The stop_after_given_afn parameter forces the program to check the values of the stop_afn column of the DATASOURCES table. If a non-zero value is found in this column, the client sets the stop AFN value and stops reading the DATASOURCES table.

To automate this functionality using a script launched by the service, see Automate Client Operations with the Service.
