Subject Securing database against corruption on systems that suddenly get turned off
Author Glenn Thomas Hvidsten



We have FirebirdSQL (2.1) running on a client computer (Windows). This client has some problems with his power grid which causes the PC to suddenly and unexpectedly shut down in infrequent intervals (usually once or twice per day). Most of the time this doesn’t cause any problems, but once in a while this causes the database to be corrupted.

I’m not at all surprised that the database gets corrupted like this (as turning off a computer without shutting everything down gracefully can have that effect).


Are there any options available that can make a database more sturdy against these kinds of corruptions?
