|Subject||WG: [firebird-support] Firebird 3 encryption in the background|
i wasn’t aware of the „linger“-feature. Shouldn’t be a factor here. I did not enabled that feature and I’m under the impression that Embedded != Superserver.
I have a multitude of problems with the encryption in embedded fb. This is just one of it. When I have enough understanding about it and have the feeling that this is a bug and not just a misunderstood feature I will report it in the bug tracker.
> Need to come back to this. I can reproduce the behavior with flamerobin as client.If you are sure there is no database linger set and there is really no user conections - report a bug in tracker, please.
> Connect via the embedded client to a database start encryption, disconnect. I can see that a handle to the database
> is still opened by flamerobin even if disconnected and I can monitor the encryption progress via “gstat -e”.
> When the encryption is ready and no connection to the database is open then the hosting process will crash and burn.
> Is there a way to stop/start the encryption progress?Of course - no. But you may use the fact that background encryption thread pause itself while database
physical state is not "normal". I.e. when database file is locked for physical backup.
