  • Hi,

    That is true. Full synch is the mechanism where all the data verify from the source and updated. But with delta only changes are committed. Mostly in production daily we use delta because of heavy data. And full sync is proposed on weekends.

    But it depends how much heavy system you have.

    Given a properly designed system, there should be no reason to run Full Syncs during steady state operations.

  • The link Patrick provided is the best place to start. 

    For someone new to the sync engine, the article might not make it clear that in both delta and full synchronizations, all disconnectors in the connector space are evaluated according to join rules to determine if they can be connected to existing metaverse objects.  The article does describe the subtle but important difference between running a delta import and a delta sync in two steps rather than a single step.  In the case of a delta import and delta sync in a single step, the only disconnectors that are evaluated for joins are those that changed in that delta import.  It is the only synchronization step type that does not evaluate all disconnectors, which may be counterproductive or beneficial depending on your situation.
