Subject Firebird using large chunks of memory
Author Rick Fincher

I'm using the super server version of Firebird under Solaris 8 and it is using 295 meg of ram.

It starts out using less than 64 meg then grows to the 295 meg point and seems to stop there.

This is grabbing most of the available memory from other apps.

Before using super server the classic version used to grab all the RAM by launching dozens of interserver processes and never letting them go.

Is this peculiar to Solaris or do I have some bad settings I need to change?

The database is being accessed with the Interclient JDBC driver.

The sessions are supposed to timeout after 30 minutes, but the memory never sees to get released.
