Replication Update: Dynamic Parameter Loading

Sourabh Agarwal announces a new feature with SQL Server replication:

When a new agent user profile is created and assigned to an agent, relevant entries are added to the [dbo].[MSagent_profiles] and the [dbo].[MSagent_parameters] tables in the MSDB database on the Distributor server. The values in the tables are updated whenever a parameter value is updated for the Profile. These values are reloaded from the tables, whenever a replication agent is restarted. As part of the improvement a new profile parameter “ProfileReloadInterval” with a default value of 300 seconds, was added to the profiles. This parameter dictates the interval at which the agent reloads the values from the tables. If using the default value, the agent will try and reload the values from the MSDB tables every 5 minutes. If it encounters that any of the above-mentioned parameter values have changed, the new values will be used by the agents.

I don’t work with replication enough to really see the benefit, but I’m sure somebody is giddy about this.
