Subject sweep taking a long time
Author Richard Mace

I am running a sweep using ibconsole, on a database as listed below,
which is running firebird 1.00:

Here is the spec of the server its running on.

Hardrive: 40gb
CPU: Intel 850mhz
RAM: 256mb
OS: Win 2k Prof
Uptime: 10 weeks
Firebird v1.0

The Database is 34.5gb in total and the drive is partitioned, the DB
is stored on the second partition which is 35gb.

The IBServer.exe process is currently using between 70% and 90% and
the memory usage has stayed at 12,996k.

Its been running for 49hours now, any ideas how long a sweep should
take or whether these is a quicker way of reducing the size of it?
there is only 94mb free space on this partition currently.

Also the applications that normally write to the database are not
running whilst the sweep is in process.

Thanks in advance
