Choosing and Configuration of TCP Paths for Oracle GoldenGate (Doc ID 1384456.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 31, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate - Version 9.5_EA and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Purpose

TCP is a communications protocol that allows two connected TCP processes to exchange data. The connection involved is both logical and physical. In most cases, a physical path will exist and any issues encountered will be in the logical routing of the TCP messages. Oracle GoldenGate (OGG) communicates in a normal TCP manner exchanging data between an Extract (often a datapump) on the source and a server (collector) on the target. The TCP code is embedded in the Extract and Server program objects.

Scope

A cautionary note, The IP6 version of TCP is not currently supported by GoldenGate (Nov2011). Additionally, one must be careful to differentiate between the ill-named but supported TCP/IPv6 and IP6 which is unsupported.  IPV6 is supported from OGG version 12c in dual stack mode.
