There is no batch update in Firebird 2.5.1/Jaybird 2.2.
Our application is a complex technical product that analyzes firewall behavior and security. It creates humongous tables with 10000 plus rows for each firewall.
When we have remote clients writing to the db, we find performance to be very, very slow (30 minutes for a firewall) largely because of the row by row db update, which involves a round trip across the network..
Due to network latency, each round trip is very slow making our product unusable when remote clients are used. With local clients the same operation takes a minute.
We think a batch update is the answer. We know MySQL has it but we prefer to remain with Firebird. Do we have any hope?.
