Subject Firebird restarting
Author Michael Vilhelmsen

I asked a similar question some days ago, without getting a answer I
could use.
So here it goes again.

Some 50 days ago we moved a client from one server to another.
The old server was a Win2000 with 2Gb of RAM, Single Core CPU.
Firebird is 1.5.0.
The Db is some 8 Gb.
On this old server it has been running for 3 years wihtou any problems
with some 100+ connections.

Now on the new server it a Win2003 64Bit, 4 Gb of RAM, Dual Core CPU
and FB 1.5.0.
The first 3 or 4 weeks i ran smoothly. But the last few weeks I get
the following in the FB log file.

DBSRV04 (Server) Sat Dec 16 17:17:13 2006
internal gds software consistency check (cannot start thread)

(A LOT of these. Happens when a user wants to connect).

Now there also appears these (the last 3 days).

DBSRV04 (Client) Sun Dec 17 14:46:37 2006
C:\Program Files (x86)\Firebird\Firebird_1_5\bin\fbserver.exe:
terminated abnormally (4294967295)

DBSRV04 (Client) Sun Dec 17 14:46:37 2006
Guardian starting: C:\Program Files

At this point everybody looses there connection.

We havn't changed anything in the FB settings.
Actually - they only differences are OS (Win2000 --> Win2003 64Bit)
and CPU (Single Core --> Dual Core) and more RAM (2 Gb --> 4Gb).

We have tried doing a backup - restore one nigth. That didn't help
(And I would like to avoid that again, sinse the restore takes almost
6 hours to complete).
We have tried restarting Win2003 server every nigth. That didn't help.

So rigth now I have some 100+ very angry users in the phone. At almost
all time (we sell a Point-Of-Sale system to shops, and in these
christmas times the shops are open all the time).

Does anyone have anything that could solve or narrow down my problem ?
