 Description  « Hide

I have ocassionaly occuring fbserver crashes at our customers firebird server. I do not have any clue what could be the reason for this.
After inspecting the firebird.log of other customers, I discovered, that also other customers with different environment have the same crashes, but that crashes are very rarely. Sometimes there are months without crash, and then there are 4 or 5 crashes on 1 single day.
So I installed the debug build of firebird and now I have a log of the last crash (today).

Could you please help me identify the reason for this crashes?

Kind regards

Helmut Steinberger

The log is attached.

1. Could you produce full memory dump ?
2. Is it possible that application works with the same attachment from the more than one thread at the same time ?

You were asked about the memory dumps created by DrWatson, not only its log. Also, you haven't answered the second Vlad's question.

Sorry for that. How can I produce a full memory dump?

As for the 2nd question: The problem occures when printing and It could be that reportbuilder (reporting tool I use in my Delphi Application) does some multithreading.
I will take a look at this. So please tell me first, what I shall do to get a full memory dump.

The memory dump should have been created by DrWatson (if it was set up properly) and it should reside in the same directory as the log file.

Memorydump was disabled. Now it is enabled but I have to wait for the error because it is not reproducable.
After the office of the customer is closed, I will do some printing stuff, where the error often occurs to get a memory dump. I will be back if I have successfully crashed the server.
