Subject More network traffic with FB 2.1.1...?
Author phil_hhn
Hi, we've been doing some preliminary tests with FB 2.1.1 (win32) vs
our old FB version, 1.5.4. We have a Java application (running under
java 6) and are using jaybird 2.1.5.

We have a program which does a lot of processing and just over 400
queries. Using Wireshark we looked at the number of network packets
transmitted during this time between our application and FB, via the
jaybird driver.
With FB 1.5.4, the number of packets transmitted is 4535. With FB
2.1.1 the number of packets is 6600.

Is this right, or have we done something wrong? From a doc re. 'remote
interface improvements'
( it suggested there
may be 50% less packets, but there is almost 50% more. We thought
maybe we could try a jaybird 2.2 driver, but we cannot find one
(alpha, pre-release, or whatever... the most recent one around appears
to have been compiled in 2006??).

Any idea what is going on?
Thanks, Phil
