Subject gbak slow on remote connection fas on local
Author Alexandre Benson Smith
Hi people !

I have a doubt

Client FB 1.5.2 on WinXP
Server FB 1.5.2 SS on Linux Redhat 9
Both on the same lan segment (100Mbps/sec)

if I run a gbak from the client machine it runs VERY slow
gbak server:alias alias.fbk -user sysdba -password masterkey -v -t

I leave it running for 30 minutes and it not finishes, it has progress
along the tables but extremely slow !

If I run the same on the server machine
gbak localhost:alias alias.fbk -user sysdba -password masterkey -v -t

it runs in less than 10 seconds

Garbage Collection is not a problem, I run with the -g switch and the
same happens

This is a development database and has very few data. the database is
just 11MB and the back-up is 3.5MB

Anyone has any idea why it could be so slow on the remote machine ?

or how I can try to pindown where the problem lies ?

Thank you very much !

see you !
