Everyone who wants to know about how transaction replication works and how to improve the performance of transaction replication must read a great blog :


log reader read the transactions(Changes) with sp_replcmds, for xp_replcmds.

then log reader writes into distributor database using sp_MSadd_replcmds

Distributor reads commands using sp_MSget_repl_commands

Distributor writes command to subscriber using sp_MSupd, sp_MSins, sp_MSdel stored procedures

Log reader and distributor keeps the history at distributor database with MSlogreader_history and MSdistribution_history  tables.
