Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

  • Alpha Five Server consuming more Memory and Sysem Getting very slow

    Hi all,

    this is very critical and urgent to me.

    we developed ERP System and implemented in our company using alpha Five V9. now i am doing after implementation work.

    I noticed system running very slow, i restarted sql server then checked the speed of ERP system it remains same. when i restarted Alpha Five server the speed of the system got boosted only for few hours.(memory usage of the Alpha five was keep on increasing very fast)


    when i checked the SPID created by sql server was very vast(more then 3000 spid's) and then just for testing i created an a5w page with open database connection for executing on simple query and close at the end,
    when i executed this page the process id in sql server got created and even though i closed the entire browser the SPID in sql server retained, and it gets cleared only when
    i restarted Alpha Five server.

    so is there way to close the connection(which clears SPID in sql server).

    this is very urgent.



    Thanks.

    Re: Alpha Five Server consuming more Memory and Sysem Getting very slow

    Hi I am not sure how you would do it on your sql server but for mysql I had to put timeouts on the connections due to the fact that was will just keep opening new threads and does not close them. I was getting to about 400 threads open at a time which was chewing up some memory. Now I sit in and around 50 which is a little easier on the mind.

        Not really sure I just made the change to the mysql settings but i am sure that WAS probably should have some additional settings to make threads close but it doesnt seem to do it currently.
