gstat -h can give you some information on long running transactions, if ran in the moment where the server is "hanged"
IBAnalyst, from IBSurgeon, can check the statistics of those databases and give you some clue on that too.

I have a few customers still working on XP with Firebird 2.5.8 32 bit. And it seems that a problem is introduced in 2.5.7 or 2.5.8. In semi regular periods, the Firebird server hangs (hogs CPU). This reappears after a restart of the Firebird server and accessing the database again. Only solution is making a backup, without Garbage collection, and restore. I can deliver databases with the problem for reproduction.
