Subject Connection Log Jam
Author reg_ellery
I am running a Windows Delphi application which allows users to enter
data. There are usually 5 or 6 users connected at any one time. Other
users connect using Palm PDAs to upload and download data. The syncing
software written in C#. The number of connections is around 10 during
off peak and as high as 40 connections at peak times. I'm using
IBOCosole to monitor things on a firebird 1.5.2 database. The DB
server is 2 Xeon 3.2 Ghz with 2GB of RAM.
Problem: Most days it hums along just fine but on a couple of
occasions the number of connections (according to IBOConsole) has
blown out to over 1000 and the sytem stops to a crawl.
Any ideas?
