    Interbase IBX to Firedac TDatetime

    I have converted from IBX to FireDAC without any problems with the datetime fields. What database are you using?

    Delphi IDE on AMD cpu?

    The Ryzen 5 processor is more than capable of running VM's on your PC. If it's not for gaming, go for a business PC, they have better hardware quality.

    Target machine actively refused connection

    Have you checked if your interbase service is running? You can try to connect to it with tke IB Consol that comes with the Interbase installation.

    10.4 Could not compile dbgrids

    Check in your project folders to see if there is a dbgrid.pas or dbgrid.dcu file and remove it, if it's there.

    Best Practices for FireDAC FetchMode/RecordCount Settings

    Is there anything that prevent you from indexing all the fields in the join and where clause? There is a good chance that it would give you a significiant boost on your query performance.

    Best Practices for FireDAC FetchMode/RecordCount Settings

    If you make a select count query on an indexed field, it should only take a ms to execute. The resultset will only have one record. If your table only have 1500 records, the dataset.RecordCount should also respond quckly (not as quick as the record count thoug). There must be something else that goes wrong. What database are you using? Have you tried to run the queries directly in a db manager?

    Best Practices for FireDAC FetchMode/RecordCount Settings

    A count(*) should always be done an an index field, or the point of using it is gone in the first place.

    Best Practices for FireDAC FetchMode/RecordCount Settings

    To fetch all the records from a table to get the record count is in most cases a bad praxis. If it's a table with a lot of records, you will just put a lot unnessisary strain on the database server. A count(*) query, on the other hand, has a very limited impact on the server.

    Best Practices for FireDAC FetchMode/RecordCount Settings

    You can use an extra query with a count(*) to get the number of records.

    Admin Tool for IBToGo2020

    Have you tried IBExpert?

    Analyze interbase slow queries

    You can analyze your queries in IBExpert, but you need the paid version to be able to see all the details.
  13. You will need a vpn connection between the datasnap server and the local network. SQL queries over an internet line is very slow, but if it's only a few records, maybe you can live with it. You would be better of writing some REST services to communicate between the two hosts.

    What is the best way LoadFromFile & Thread? (FMX)

    I'm no expert in threads, but I'm shure that a LoadFromFile should be synchronized. As stated above the try/finally is pointless. If you only have these two commands in the thread, and both will be synchronized, there will be no point in putting them in a thread. It will probably just slow your program down.

    InterBase or Firebird?

    Firebird is free. With Interbase you will have to pay for a license. I'm shure that both will serve you well, with RDBMS or as embedded.
