Striim Migration Service for Google Cloud Documentation

Frequently asked questions about SMSGC

Q: Why do I have to migrate the foreign keys separately?

When performing your initial load, SMSGC writes the tables in alphabetical order, so the tables that contain the foreign keys may not exist yet. This is not an issue during continuous migration, since in that case SMSGC propagates all of the events to the target in the same order as they happen in the source.

Q: Does SMSGC store my data?

No. After copying data from the source to the target, SMSGC discards it.
