SQL Anywhere


All I wanna do is "Log Expensive Queries" in Version 11... why does it have to be so hard?


After almost a day of trying (not just because of I gave up trying to do Application Profiling using a separate profiling database and checked "Save tracing in this database" (emphasis mine).

But even that fails...

An error has occurred - tracing was not attached to the database.
ATTACH TRACING could not connect to the tracing database
[Sybase][ODBC Driver][SQL Anywhere]ATTACH TRACING could not connect to the tracing database
SQLCODE: -1097

Yes, the connection string is perfect... after all, Sybase Central is already connected to "this database".

How is that even possible? ...for ATTACH TRACING to not connect to a LOCAL database Sybase Central is already connected to?

Yes, there is a lot of funky stuff in "this database"... and one of the funky things is that it's started with the dbsrv11 -sb 0 option.

For a good reason, normally.

Remove that, and Application Profiling can proceed... I hope... :)


Gosh, I love 9.0.2!
