Subject Re: [IB-Architect] Connection resources, classic vs. SS

Jason has been asking leading questions about the number of
users a SuperServer can handle effectively. Let me back up
a bit.

The limiting factor on superserver connections is not memory.
Yes, there's some memory used per connection, but compared with
the available memory on even a moderate sized Win2K box - or the
memory used by Win2K, Firebird does not use much memory. The
real problems are the amount of processor that can be used and the
effectiveness of the cache.

We need to work on threading and on effective use of large cache
sizes if we are to handle thousands of concurrent attachments.


We have answers.
