Database Sweep

Previous  Index  Next  How To Use

Sweeping is the process of running a garbage collector on an Firebird database - for a detailed description, check the Firebird documentation.

 

The sweep functionality can be reached via the context menu in the Enterprise Manager - Administration & Maintenance | Database Sweep - or the tree node in the Database Navigator.

 

Sweeping can take some time and degrade performance for other users - so use this option with care.

 

Note:

This functionality only works with Firebird SuperServer.
