Hi everyone,
after installation of SQL Anywhere 9.x, with all the tools like Sybase
Central and InteractiveSQL, I can find the processes "dbisqlg.exe" and
"scjview.exe" in the task manager right after system boot, and even if ASA
tools are not in use.
I guess this is some way to "preload" these utilities for a quick opening on
further use.
Anyway I would like to know if these processes are really expected to stay
in memory all the time.
And in this case I think there should be a way to configure ASA to disable
the automatic startup of these processes and decide to spare about 40mb of
memory (suppose for example you're working on a machine where you must deal
with limited system memory amount).

Does anyone have some info about this?

Thanks

Michele

Nevermind...

I just had an idea about searching the ASA9 documentation with a different
keyword, and here's what I found:

Fast launching of Sybase Central and Interactive SQL
On Windows, Sybase Central and Interactive SQL include a fast launcher that
is designed to reduce application startup time when you start Sybase Central
or Interactive SQL. Running Adaptive Server Anywhere 9.0 starts two
background processes, an instance of dbisqlg.exe and an instance of
scjview.exe, which are the fast launcher processes for Interactive SQL and
Sybase Central, respectively. Both of these executables are started when the
user logs in.

Hello,

There is a recommendation/suggestion for ASA Version 10 to give these as
checkboxes in the Installation. This way, the user can decide whether or
not they want to fast launch these services.

Like many utilities out there, the "fast launcher" ability is useful if
you plan on utilizing these utilities often (other popular examples of
software with fast launchers include WinZip, Adobe Acrobat, Apple
QuickTime, etc.)

If you wish to disable the fast launchers you can do so:

- Start Sybase Central
- Go to "Tools" -> "Options"
- Uncheck "Enable Fast Launcher"

- Start Interactive SQL
- Go to "Tools" -> "Options"
- In the "General" tab:
- Uncheck "Enable Fast Launcher"
