|Subject||Re: [firebird-support] Re: lock denied...|
It seems that the only problem is in:
EXEC SQL SET DATABASE DB = '/var/lib/firebird/2.5/data/xxx.fdb';
When add ip adress and I change it to:
EXEC SQL SET DATABASE DB = '127.0.0.1:/var/lib/firebird/2.5/data/xxx.fdb';
then it seems to work even in SuperServer (if Firebird really runs in SuperServer after changing /opt/firebird/firebird.conf)
This brings another question - how can I recognize in which mode is Firebird running?

Thank you for your response.
Compared to you I'm just a beginner so I have other questions.
> i see no relation between such services and requirement to use SuperClassic
I din't investigate it much but I think it is becuase the C programs it is historically written something like this:
SET DATABASE DB = '/var/lib/firebird/2.5/data/xxx.fdb';
CONNECT DB USER 'xxx' PASSWORD 'xxx';
(Don't get confused by the "2.5" subdirectory, I did "gbak -r" to 3.0 version but I put it in the old dir.)
I think that in this case the C programs access somehow more directly and they can't cooperate with SuperServer.
But I promise I'll lokk at it.

Please how? Make less connections?

I've found some: "ALTER DATABASE SET LINGER TO"
I guess I'll have to do it via isql and not by Flamerobin. (?)
How can I check how much is it right now?
(I've found some tip "gstat -h" which I use for sweeping monitor. But I can't see there any "linger".)
I've found some presentation that this "linger functionality" has effect whene there are no connections.
But I think that I have there new attachments almost every second. (?)

How can I get this dump?
I've found some document from 2008 mentioning BugcheckAbort=1 in the firebird.conf.

SuperClassic in FB3 is legacy and not recommended mode.
