Which Firebird version, how many users with both CS/SS and single/multiprocessor machine?

Have you set the CPU affinity (or whatever it is called) to use one specific processor when running SS on a machine with multiple processors?

Also, define the word 'slow'. Exactly what is slow (connecting, querying etc) and how slow is 'slow'?

Subject: [firebird-support] Performance Problem

Hi All,

We are using Firebird Super Server. It is working fine with Windows
single processor machines.

But when it comes to multiprocessing environment (Dual CPU and SCSI
RAID machines), the performance is drastically degrading.

We observed the same performance problem with Classical Server
also. Is there any way to improve the performance using Super
Server for Dual CPU and SCSI RAID machines.

Can anybody suggest a solution to this problem? It is very Urgent...
