Subject Configure a timeout to rollback transactions of dead connections
Hi there,

We have been suffering blackout problems lately. Our Firebird database server stays on but all client computers with applications just die. Due to this, some database records end up being "locked up" by the server and when the power returns, client applications cannot continue working on those records (cannot edit, delete, etc.)

So for this I've been asked to configure our Firebird database server to roll back all active transactions that have not received a commit or rollback from the client connection in 10 minutes.

I found a thread that says that this is possible:

I appreciate any specific insight on how to do this configuration, please. Using Firebird 2.54 (64 bit Classic Server) on Windows.
