8 YEARS OF PROBLEMS WITH ISCOLLECT

18 November 2004 - 04:37 PM

We began to use PRO-IV in 1995 with a Novell Server with few users, we were happy and produced TONS of code and applications.
In 1996 we migrated to version 4.0 in a HP9000 Unix server with many more users and our problems began.
When more than 200 users entered to our applications the response time went from seconds to 3 to 5 minutes, it was a nightmare.
After months of analysis we found that stopping all users and reseting the ISCOLLECT solved the problem... until the ISCOLLECT got saturated again.
Since then we stop the system once or twice a day.
In 2001 we migrated to a SUN Microsystems 10K server with 8 CPU's with Solaris 5.8 and 400 concurrent users.
The phenomena was the same: ISCOLLECT freezes down the server after many hours of use.
PRO-IV Corporation has been unable to solve this in 8 years, and the local support in my country (Mexico) has been also unable to solve the problem.
Today we are not developing any new code in PRO-IV, but will be using it for at least 2 years more.
I would like to receive some feedback from users of this forum regarding this topic.
