Does Sybase have stats on which platform/architecture ASE runs best - least problematic by any
measure?

Can't say if Sybase has something like this. In our shop, we run ASE on
three quite popular platforms; HP-UX, Sun Solaris, and Windows. Of
these three, I can say over the last 8 years that we've had the fewest
"problems" on HP. But, I would say this says more about the OS vendor
than it does about Sybase.

Other experiences may (and probably will) differ. This could be a
question that just has too many variables involved to discretely answer.

Interesting, would you qualify how the OS vendor makes a difference in your case?

We are using 12.0.0.2 ESD#2 and 12.0.0.4 ESD#2 in a very demanding
environment. Both versions have been rock solid on AIX 4.3.3.10 and HP/UX 11

A good thing to get into the habit of doing is whenever a new EBF is
released, take a look at the bugs (CRs) that were fixed and any new
features that were added regardless of whether or not you are planning
on applying the patch. Knowing potential problems you may encounter in
the future may save a few late nights of recovery....

Good thinking Jason. But sometimes new releases also come with their own
_new_ bugs. It is difficult to know them in advance before they bit. My
feeling is, if your dataserver runs without any serious problems for a year
and a half, there is little reason to upgrade to fix bugs that are not
affecting you. Upgrading can be very dangerous at times. We currently have
too many stored procedures that risk behaving differently if we upgrade to,
let's say, 12.0.0.7.

You're absolutely correct. I would just add waiting a few weeks after
an ebf comes out usually means that techsupport will know if there were
any problems with the ebf. Even then, I would run the ebf in a
test/development system a few weeks more just to be certain. Best to be
aware of any problem prior to upgrading a production box.

I sleep better at night (and sometimes during the day) when running a production
system on a Unix/Linux flavor as opposed to a Windows platform.
