User Action Replication

Relevant for Power Mode only

Each time you perform a user action on your primary machine, Sprinter updates the action number on the primary machine display in the Machines sidebar.

Sprinter then replicates that action on all the secondary machines in your run. As the action is replicated, there is a visual indication on the Machines sidebar tab, as well as on the replication icon for each secondary machine display. The replication icon for each secondary machine also turns gray during the replication process.

If the action is replicated successfully, the replication status returns to green and the action number for that machine is updated to reflect the performed action.

If Sprinter was unable to replicate your user action, the replication status turns red. Sprinter also turns the secondary machine display red and locks the secondary machine.

When a secondary machine is locked, you can continue to perform actions on your primary machine. These actions will be pending for any secondary machines that are locked. When you perform these actions, the action number of the primary machine will advance, but those of any locked secondary machines will remain at the action number that caused the failure.

Pending actions may or may not be replicated when you unlock the machine, depending on how you resolve the differences between machines. For details, see Resolving Problems on and Unlocking Secondary Machines.

During replication, Sprinter checks only those user interface elements that are needed to replicate the action, to determine if it can replicate the action. All other objects in the user interface are not compared between the primary and secondary machines.

To check for all differences between the displays of the primary and secondary machines, you perform a Compare All operation from the Machines sidebar.

For details on comparing the displays of the primary and secondary machines, see Comparing Machines.
