Thanks. Now, If I meet anyone who tell that firebird will be drop on
multi CPU, I've an answer that will break that argument. :) Of course
with the exception that it must lock the CPU via the affinity mask.

Until now, I still can't get connect to the firebird server when it's
set to classic server. Which will you choose, classic server or super
server? With the condition you have dual core CPU, and your server
will be serves about 10 clients or more.
