I'm aware of that component of SAPDB, but I consider "Replication
Manager" a misnomer, because the component actually provides the
functionality that other RDBMSes would refer to as "bulk copy".

Apparently the SAPDB folks also regard it as a misnomer, because they
renamed it to "Loader" in 7.4, and they themselves maintain that "SAP
DB does not support replication features"
