Re: [firebird-support] A lot of fb_inset_server.exe processes are hanging. If the connection is made by TCPIP, the fb proccess will be notified about "broken connection" only after 2 hours (this is the default TCPIP timeout). You may try to configure the DummyPacketInterval in firebird.conf to 60 seconds, for example, and see what happens. Or try to configure the keepalive settings on the TCP/IP properties.

Hi guys,

We have few applications that are..lets say far from beeing stable;) Those applications spawn multiple threads and each of them have its own connection to database. So... there is a lot of fb_inet_server.exe processes and that is fine. However, as I said, our applications are unstable so from time to time we need to kill them. The problem is that when we kill them, fb_inet_server.exe processes are not killed automatically. I mean, sometimes they are and sometimes they are not.

I would like to know have you observed simmilar behaviour? I am not able to reporduce it on my own machine but it happens very often on the customer's server. If I kill in the task manager my application, all fb_inet_server execs dissapear almost instantly but on customer's machine very often they will stay forever.

How the main fb_inet_server process know when to kill the lesser ones;) ?
