Subject Slow response to missing server
Author Anthony Ison
Hi all,

I am doing some testing of lost connections. I use the
TIB_Connection.VerifyConnection method to test whether the connection is
still available. I then pull out the network cable. The VeryConnection
call is very responsive until the cable is pulled. The next request
takes over 10 seconds to return.

Is there any way to reduce the timeout on VerifyConnection? It looks
like it is the call to isc_database_info. Would doing this cause other
side effects? I need my software to be quick to respond to a lost
server connection.

Thanks in advance.
