Subject Re: [firebird-support] timeout a pending connection via a bad network?
Author John vd Waeter

Nobody? All applications freeze when networkthroughput drops down to
allmost zero or even stops at all?

My case was a network (via internet) from which a ping returned about 5%
of the packets... not to mention the turnaroundtime. Really bad
performance. As I learned here that FB is rather "chatty" over the
network, I can understand that in these circumstances it looks like the
application locks up.

I would like to signal the user that network is bad, and that it might
be a good idea to try later... How would I do that?
