Re: [p4] sync

This doesn't sound like a standard Perforce workflow. The job is 
submitted as soon as the command finishes. If there is a lag between 
when your submission finishes and when it "shows up on the server" I'm 
guessing you have some additional promotion mechanisms in place.

If that's true, then there are characteristics of your submissions that 
can be tracked. Without knowing the details of this process, it's hard 
to know what to look at. If you want to look at a particular change 
counter from the GUI, check out the "custom tools" functionality in both 
P4Win and P4V.
