A proxy table is created for each replicate article that identifies a table in the replicate database. The proxy table contains one column for each published field to which the replicate article subscribes.
Proxy tables allow the ASE Replicator Distributor component to apply replicated transaction operations to a local table in the Distribution Database, and use the Adaptive Server CIS feature to manage connections to remote servers and apply transaction operations to tables in remote databases.
Proxy table names begin with the characters px, followed by an incremented “odometer” value. For example, the name of the first proxy table created is pxa.
