Meta Frame server farm (6)
We have about 125 concurrent PowerBuilder users funneled through a
Metaframe server farm. The clients login to MF server and launch an
instance of PB. Sometimes an ungracefull exit from the client will
leave a instance of PB* on the MF server still logged into ASE
(MF zombies). Last night we had a couple MF zombies* around
with shared locks on objects. We identified them by noticing that
they were sitting on objects with shared locks and not moving off.
Does anyone have a suggestion for identifing such beast? I thought
about looking at CPU but these guys were not consuming cpu cycles.
The only thing I could think of was looking at the locked pages and
see if a spid was sitting on a certain page for more than a couple
minutes or some interval. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
