The forum is currently being migrated to a new host. While the migration happens, the old server is still available. Once the new machine is ready, I will copy the database to the new machine. Feel free to ask and answer questions in the meantime.

It is possible to restrict the debugging in Sybase Central to one user.

What I am looking for, to use it on a productive system, is to restrict the debugging just to one connection. Is that possible? I am looking for a way to debug only the procedures called by a single connection ignoring all calls to these procedures which come from other connections.

To use the debugger requires either DBA privilege or SA_DEBUG authority, which is how you would restrict the set of users who can use the debugger.

There is no built-in mechanism to limit debugger connections that I am aware of. You could use the IsDebugger connection property to test to see if another connection is already using the debugger - for example, you could execute an event periodically to see if more than one such connection exists, and then report the existence of more than one connection as a message in the console window.

Thanks for the answer, but I haven't meant a way to prevent multiple debugger sessions. I am looking for a way to debug only the procedures called by a single connection ignoring all calls to these procedures which come from other connections. Sorry for that.

Can you set a breakpoint &&SPID = n where n is the connection number?
