Subject Re: [FB 2.1] Firebird engine seems to slow down on high load without utilizing hardware
1) We have sweep set to 0. We do monitor the transaction gab and if needed, we interact. Any kind of automatic sweep under high load will kill the server :)

2) We do run gbak daily. We do not use nbackup - we would like to and tried it but it's corrupting the db.

3) We do use read-only readcommited transactions with record versioning as much as we can.
Otherwise, same Settings but not read-only.
