scan_sleep_increment specifies the number of seconds that scan sleep time increases between consecutive empty log scans. This parameter is used for primary database connections only.

Scan sleep time is the time that the Publisher component waits to start a transaction log scan after a log scan returns no data. Each subsequent time that a log scan returns no data, the scan sleep time increases by the amount specified in scan_sleep_increment, up to the amount of time specified by scan_sleep_max.

When a log scan returns data, the scan sleep time is set to zero.
