We currently have Sybase 12.0 and Sybase 12.5 DB servers installed with the same application connecting to both. These servers both have proxy table mappings using a load balance Direct Connect 12.5 database server to access a Connx ODBC datasource. We are experiencing sporadic periods were the direct connect processes will shut down or either freeze up since have deployed this into production under a loaded environment. Was wondering if anyone had experience with direct connect to an ODBC datasource and had seen problems similar to this. We have turned on multiple trace flags but are unable to get any info in the trace files. The sybase servers are on unix and the direct connect servers are windows. Currently we are trying to get a windows debugger installed to capture any errors that may be happing at a OS level on the direct connect boxes. Any help is desparately needed, we are in a production situation.
