Subject Re: slow backup (fb 1.5 classic on linux)
Author ggroper
I am just now learning Firebird and loaded a test data base with about
1.3 gig of data on latest Firebird 1.5 on a Windows XP machine with 3
ghz processor and 1 gig of cpu memory.

I first used an interactive utility but it was slow so I killed it and
tried gbak after re booting.

I used gbak from a command prompt to back up the data base from one
disk drive to a second, afer 6 hours I killed the process. I checked
frequently in the Windows explorer and saw that the backup file was
slowly expanding - after g hrs it was around 50 meg.

MS SQL Server backs up the same test database in about 5 minutes??

Any ideas??
