Subject Re: firebirdsql vs interclient speed
Author llafranc78
Hi Herbert

I've got a 100Mb lan, with Win2000 Pro.

Yes, firebirdsql is slower for queries, but I still think that 35 secs
is to much for interclient, even if you lan is not a 100Mbit.
I've just read one of your previous posts, when you said you're using
"Firebird 09 something". Try installing FirebirdRC2 and see what
happens: maybe the problem is the server, not the client :)

As for the inserts, I've checked them once again. You're right, 20ms
is utopia :) I don't know what I was looking at. I've tried an insert
(over the network) three times using firebirdsql, with following
results: 631 ms, 547 ms, 491 ms.
