InterBase is slow


I have setup Interbase 6 on an XP Pro computer and it does run however it is extremely slow. What can I do?


  1. if on Windows XP, try turning off system restore
  2. If you IB is runnig on a processor with hyperthreading, search the web for IB_AFFINITY.ZIP.
    At the time of writing, you can find it at
    IB_Affinity is a utility to set InterBase's affinity to a single CPU. Needed on SMP servers for InterBase databases before version 6.5, not needed for Firebird. IBServer has to run as an application for this to work.
