I have configured a simple website accessing three database's. The database boxes just freeze and even when you try and access a static page a DNS error is displayed.

Does anybody have any load testing solutions avaliable?

Also does anybody have experience of Filemaker 5.5 and the new version of webconnect? It is not out here yet in the UK and I was wondering if it is a good upgrade? Filemaker Inc don't seem to have much info about what it new.

Thanks

It is Filemaker 5 Unlimted and I have checked and am running the latest patch level for the application and the server and web companion.

I am not using the websecurity as this did not seem to be neccessary (the site is only accessable to our workers who dial in from home).

The files online are copies of the three main database's on our main system which has been running with no problems for ages.

Hi Al

(the site is only accessable to our workers who dial in from home).

I'm assuming here that they are just making a dial-up connection to the Internet and then connecting through a web browser using a domain name or an IP address??

If you just input the domain name (or address) for the server, does the default page appear??

No. They do not dialup to the internet. They dial one of our numbers to dial into our RAS server where they can access e-mail and the database.

We just used a webfront end for speed and all they type in to access the site is the site name as defined by the IIS.

I am running through WSC on IIS 4. When enter a static html page I get error 404 when the database's have crashed.

I was running on port 80 and have tries port 591 but this made no difference. I will probably try port 8080 later and see but I don't think this will help.

we have exactly the same problem - IIS +WSC, FMP server and 3 boxes in the RAIC - the boxes keep freezing. We think it is volume related - done some load testing but no clearer. Anyone aware of issues relating to data transfer - could be that although the fmp boxes appear to have finish the request the web companion is still spitting back the data to the client - we know there are issues with certain requests on certain databases, particularly when the results page has a lot of data

Al - we've just tested this again - am certain the problem is that the webcompanion cannot handle multiple requests when the results page (i.e html page post the query) exceeds 40KB - we have a number of databases hosted and the ones that return multiple results (generally over about 15 records displaying on a single results page) hang every time you fire multiple requests - however if the results page is less than 40KB you can fire requests till your hearts content - i have no doubt that scripts are a factor - indeed we have run into problems - however i can replicate this hanging everytime - there must be a problem with the webcompanion!!!!!!!!

anyone got any views?
