Hi there

Has the SQL team thought about having the ability within Replication so that a publication could be sent to multiple distributors which could then distribute to multiple subscribers rather than having the current 1:1 ratio.

By having 1 distributer per instance with a very large volume of replication taking place (publications) to a large number of subscribers it can cause bottlenecks and blocking at the distributor.

Just keen to hear SQL teams views on this and if it was ever considered.

Hi BravehearT1326,

We've looked into this. Although we would like to improve the product this way we will not have the means to do it in a foreseeable future.
That said your feedback is very valuable to us, we keep track of the suggestion.
