Increasing the IRP Stack Size ** on the server may improve replication job times by allowing more resources to be allocated for the replication.
This key in the system registry must be modified or created:
- If the key is there:
Increase it to approximately 15 or 18. (20 is the suggested value.)
- If the key does not exist, do the following:
1. Create a new DWORD Value.
2. Name it IRPStackSize.
3. Double click on it to edit the value, and then put a check on the Decimal radio button for the Base so that the parameter value is set as a decimal value and not a hexadecimal value.
4. Give the new key a value of 15 and reboot. If 15 is not enough, raise it to 18 and then reboot again. (You may also choose to use the suggested value of 20).
** The IRPStackSize parameter specifies the number of stack locations in I/O request packets (IRPs) that are used by the operating system.
