When the client drops, it may take the server a long time to notice the
connection is lost, depending on how you have the TCP/IP stack
configured. In this case result sets and transactions will be held on
the server, and may cause resource contention issues.

Hi One of my clients are using firebird with five pc's. of which 3 are
notebooks and 2 desktops. They want to buy UPS's but want to know if
they shoudl only get it for the main server or also for the othjer
desktop. In other words is it bad for the database to loose the
connection to a client?. Can it cause corruption.
Thank you.
