BUG #: 58404 (SQLBUG_70)
Merge replication synchronization with large volumes may be slower after applying Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 Service Pack 2 (SP2).
Merge replication synchronization calls the sp_MSsetupbelongs system stored procedure. For each article, this procedure calls a procedure that has a name such as SEL_<article_guid>. SQL Server 7.0 SP2 made some improvement on the SEL_<article_guid>; however, on large volumes it became slower.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 3 for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
