Subject Re: [firebird-support] Restoring Backup
Author Hugo Eyng
Hello HB.

It happens with 2.5.5 32 bit. I believe that the limitation is beacuse 200000 x 16384 (page size) = 3GB greater than the avaliable amount of memory or greater than the 32bit engine is capable to manage.

I am not sure.

Why 120000? Why not? :)

That is not a gbak message. If you are using a third-party tool, it
is likely to be some limit imposed by that - or a bug?

With Firebird 2.5.5 64-bit, I am able to execute this with no error:

gbak -c -bu 800000 h:\data\backups\backup20160131.fbk
h:\data\restores\restored20160224.fdb -user sysdba -password xyxyxyxy

(Although I cannot think why I would want such a huge number of pages
in the cache, not even 120000!!)
