Important Stored Procedures For Transactional Replication

Drew Furgiuele (who always starts off with the red ring) explains three important replication stored procedures:

We all have that one scenario where replication caused us some major headaches. It’s through these headaches, though, that the search for better ways to handle problems comes up. Through my time with replication, I’ve researched and used a lot of system tables, views, and stored procedures to diagnose or fix replication problems. There’s actually a lot of things you can get into if you’re so inclined. If you put me on the spot though, and asked me “Drew, what do you think are the most helpful replication internal objects to know?” I’d tell you I have three, and they’re all stored procedures.

Here then, in no particular order, are three system stored procedures that I feel any DBA that has to deal with transactional replication should at least be aware of. They each have a unique purpose, and each can be used to quickly monitor, fix, or even destroy replication forcibly, respectively.
