Subject AW: [firebird-support] Maximum concurrent connections?
Author Steffen Heil

> Does anyone know what the suggested maximum number of concurrent
connections a Firebird server can handle? Has anyone successfully managed a
Firebird database server running 3 databases and 200 concurrent connections?

Apart of the maximum number of Sockets, your tcp/ip-stack can handle, the
limits for concurrent firebird connections are only dependent on the average
activity on these connections. Running only a brief query every 30 minutes,
firebird should handle hundrets of connections with no problems.

So what are your clients doing? Doing too much, 2 connections might already
too much.

Only one thing to remember: MGA was not designed to have long-running
transactions. Try to hard commit as often as possible.
