Perforce Replication

Replication is the duplication of server data from one Helix Core to another Helix Core, ideally in real time. You can use replication to:

Combined with a centralized authorization server (see Centralized authorization server (P4AUTH)), Perforce administrators can configure the Helix Broker (see The Helix Broker) to redirect commands to replica servers to balance load efficiently across an arbitrary number of replica servers.


Most replica configurations are intended for reading of data. If you require read/write access to a remote server, use either a forwarding replica, a distributed Perforce service, or the Helix Proxy. See Configuring a forwarding replica, Commit-edge Architecture and Helix Proxy for details.
