Just recently we have been experiencing a lot of our firebird
installations generating errors of type 'Error reading data from the
connection.'. Our Firebird installations are of the 'Classic' type and
have used version 1.5.2 for the past few years. Our .Net based software
connects with the FirebirdSql.Data.Firebird dll (version
1.0.1241.28320). To date our installations have caused very few
incidents of the above error. In recent months the frequency of these
error has grown considerably and is now a serious concern for us.
The errors are sourced to mainly the
FirebirdSql.Data.Firebird.FbResultset.Fetch() call. While the
FirebirdFaq site states that this error is:
a) someone rebooted or restarted the server
b) Firebird server crashed
this contradicts the fact that other PC's that are also connected to the
same Server and not generating these errors. Some PC's seem to
experience these problems more frequently than others connected to same
Furthermore, while the Fetch() is the main source of these errors, this
error is also (to a lesser extent) sourced by the calls
Is there a reason why we should expect the Fetch( ) call to be the main
source of these errors? Is this error an issue with Firebird itself?
We are under a lot of pressure to resolve this issue, and we'd
appreciate any help that anyone can give us.
