Hello experts,

Problem desc:

- remote Firebird 1.5 server
- 'select * from TABLE'
- 78.567.678.12
- sysdba
- masterkeyxxx
- C:\Database.gdb
- query I am able to cancel at any given time

Question:
How can I do it (using ADO probably) i.e.

TADOConnection
TADODataset (maybe other components)

Thank you!

the query will continue to run on the server, regardless of the client giving up on it, you need at least firebird 2.1 to be able to abort queries

@sedgwick:

I would like to know exactly how to use ADO components to connect to a distant server, run a query but do not necessary wait until it completes- be able to abort the query on client side and/or server side.

@NickUpson:
If possible, could you please point out how to abort query on the client side and on the server side?

My database running on 1.5 but I guess it will be also well working on 2.1 <- am I correct here?

Thank you!

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

Why dont you just call TADOConnection .Cancel
Assuming your query is running in some kind of thread and you have the opportunity to call the cancel method

1.5 does not have a mechanism to stop a query running on the server

2.1 requires you to delete the correct record from rdb$transactions

Ok, I am giving up the idea of canceling running query on the server side.
Is there any clever way of canceling query on the client side?

Thank you!

When I need the ability to do this I run the query in a thread.  If I decide to stop waiting on the thread then the program continues as though the query were cancelled.  When the query finished then the thread would free itself, and the database resources.
