Subject [ib-support] Automatic garbage collection?
Author Omar Estepa

We was having problems with our Linux database server (about 6 GB,
IBSS_LI-V6.0), it seems to be overloaded by garbage collection (after mass
deletion, I think). No problem, I go to our backup/restore daily script and
add the "-g" option to gbak commands and it works fine. The database check
tells me everything is OK and backups works fine (with "-g").

But few days later we have de same problem, the server slows down again
(100% CPU time usage) when the users was working (no backup/restore process
was running at this time). Auto-sweep is turned off.

Can the IB server automatically run the garbage collection? If it can, can I
dissable this feature? Does anybody have another idea?
