Why GoldenGate replicat issues "alter sequence .. cycle|nocycle" in sequence replication? (Doc ID 1535322.1)

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


I am using GoldenGate to replicate sequence last_number.  As this is for failover purpose, the DDL setup (including DDL trigger) is enabled in target database.  during sequence replication by replicat, I saw lots of following DDLs captured in ggs_ddl_trace.log:

alter sequence .... cycle;   ---- for the sequence with cycle option


alter sequence ... nocycle;  ---- for the sequence without cycle option


What is this DDL for, and can I disable them to improve the purpose?
