How to terminate a Qlik Replicate task on Windows

A Qlik Replicate task can generally be stopped from the Qlik Replicate web console. However, sometimes stopping the task takes longer than anticipated. A delay in the task being stopped can be caused by, for example:

  • completion of handling the current batch of changes,
  • ending the connections to the source and target database

If you plan to reload the task or to start it from a timestamp, you have the option to kill or terminate the task at the operating system level, as the task will not need to reference its stop position to resume where it left off. A reload or start from a timestamp is considered a fresh start of the task.

Never manually terminate or kill the task if you intend to resume the task and see this entry in the task log:

00009760: 2022-05-23T23:30:49 [UTILITIES       ]I:  The last state is saved to file 'D:\Program Files\Attunity\Replicate\data\tasks\TASK_NAME/StateManager/ars_saved_state_000002.sts' at Tue, 24 May 2022 04:30:41 GMT (1653366641301364)  (statemanager.c:642)
