BDE on multiprocessor machines.

Abstract: Resolving problems with BDE that may be related to running on multiprocessor machine.


Are there any know issues with the BDE on multiprocessor machines?


Yes. We have had reports that in very high traffic situations the BDE can cause an application to freeze or possibly give BDE Error $2A04. Your best solution if you are faced with this situation is probably to switch to a single processor machine or set the affinity mask of your process to run on just one processor. You may also want to consider a different form of connectivity such as ADO.
