PowerBuilder / SQL Server 2000 Performance Question
Posted on 2006-07-06
I have a very small application that I am rolling out to about 6 agents. When it starts, it hits the database and pulls up 18 rows to view standing orders. There are about 6K rows in the table that I am hitting.
The 3 installs went fine. The users on 4th, 5th and 6th installations could not get the application to run. Just an hour glass. A few minutes, eveyone (using another application that hits the same database) got runtime error 462 and we had to reboot the database.
The manager of the group told me that they started getting the error the day before, so I don't think it was my app (alone).
These are fairly simple queries. The SQL was automatically generated from the where clause that I used in the datawindow. Each installation uses a system DSN (which is also used by another reservation system).
Question: Could the PB application be conflicting with the DSN that is in use by the reservation system? Obviously the user can only use one application at a time. There is no timer event that would cause my application to refresh by itself.
I thought maybe sql server does not have enough memory, or perhaps there are not enough licensed connections?
Any advice here would be very help.
