We have a document archiving tool that runs with interbase 7. Sometimes the server crashes and needs to be restarted. At first this crash occured every half an hour. After a while i noticed that the windows temp directory was filled with IB_Merge an IB_Sort files a quick google learned that the IB_Merge files where produced by interbase but they weren't properly closed so after a while the server chrashed. There was a patch from borland to fix this. After installing the patch all seemed to run fine, but after a few hours another crash occured. Browsing through the temp directory learned that there were no IB_Merge files so that was really fixed. But there were a lot of IB_Sort files. My geuss is that the server crashes have something to do with the sorting of large datasets. Is there someone with the same problem? or does anyone know how to fix this?
