Space Filters and Replication

Hello Everyone, I am trying to determine if a replication in a sync cluster will cause a space filter to be executed. In other words if I write an entry to a cluster, with 2 members, will the space filter be executed twice. Once on the initial write, and a second time during the replication?

If so, is there a way to stop this behavior or at least determine that a write is the result of a replication?

Thanks, Charlie

- The space filter will be executed if the filter is active for a backup space. You can disable the filter for a space running in backup mode. See the <active-when-backup> filter declaration property: http://www.gigaspaces.com/wiki/display/GS6/SpaceFilter-SpaceSchema-6.0
- If both replicated spaces are active (no backup) the space filter event will be called at both spaces.
- Update filter operations are not called on the replica. This is a known issue for some time. Will be fixed in future versions.
- The space filter context is null for a filter called as a result of a replication event. You can use this as indication to know if this is originated by a client call or replication event. Just make sure your space is secured and you pass the security context credentials for the space proxy via IJSpace setSecurityContext().
- Another way to identify if the operation is a result of a client call or replication event is to use replication filter. I think this is too much overhead to identify event originator. See: http://www.gigaspaces.com/wiki/display/GS6/ReplicationFilters-6.0
