Error description

  • When using the replicate to spl routine, when a transaction has
    more than max smallint rows (so 65535), the cdr data sync thread
    exhausts all possible statement ids, and then rejects further
    rows (or the whole transaction at that point) with -208 errors
    reported in the RIS file.
    
    Example RIS file output:
    
    TXH Source ID:101 / Name:g_mqtt / CommitTime:21-05-12 13:58:53
    TXH Target ID:101 / Name:g_mqtt / ReceiveTime:21-05-12 13:59:12
