Sinática Monitor can help you increase your Firebird server’s performance
Eliminating Slow Statements
Identifying slow SQL statements is one of the first steps in optimizing a Firebird database. Only after they are identified, can we define what kinds of optimizations will be necessary.

Decreasing Disk I/O Usage
Another important step in optimizing your Firebird DB is decreasing how much disk I/O is used. With Sinática Monitor, you have two important tools to identify I/O consumers.
I/O Consumers Chart
In addition, Sinática Monitor also tracks every SQL statements’ Table Scan Index. Ideally, statements should access tables in an indexed manner. But not every statement accesses tables in that fashion. Some execute what is called a Table Scan and consume a lot of disk I/O.

Assuring Good Transaction Flow
Good transaction management is essential for Firebird’s optimal performance. When a transaction is open for a significant amount of time (days, or perhaps long hours, depending on the load) the Firebird Server starts to suffer from excess of record versions. This makes the server slower and slower until eventually it comes to a complete halt.
Stuck Transaction Alarm
In Sinática Monitor, you have and ally monitoring your databases at all times. Don’t wait until your customers complain about your Firebird server’s performance. Keep monitoring actively and be alerted at the first signs of difficulty.
