Subject Firebird 2.1.3 Freezing
Author bojanpasic

We recently migrated from FB 1.5 to 2.1.3 and now we are encountering some problems. Sometimes FB server starts using 100% of CPU and all applications stop responding. It's even impossible to stop the FB Server via control panel applet - we have to do it through Services. There are no errors in firebird.log when this happens. But there is one error that keeps repeating and was not present in 1.5: "INET/inet_error: read errno = 10054".

Our configuration: Windows 2003 Server SP2, Firebird 2.1.3 Superserver (32 bit), 4GB ram. On average there are 150 users connected to 3 databases. Main database is 20 GB in size (others are much smaller). There are no UDFs and we removed most of the blobs (except a few, that contain pictures).

With the same configuration, there were no problems with FB 1.5 Superserver.

We appreciate any ideas what to do.
