When running on a PC, make sure your server meets the minimum CPU, memory, and disk requirements:
SQL Anywhere can run with as little as 4 MB of memory. If you are using the administration tools, such as Sybase Central and Interactive SQL, SQL Anywhere requires at least 32 MB of RAM. Your computer must have this much memory in addition to the requirements for the operating system.
Enough disk space to hold your database and log files.
Keep in mind that these are the minimums. If you are meeting only the minimum hardware requirements, and find that performance is suffering, consider upgrading some or all of your hardware. In general, evaluate the hardware configuration to see if it is adequate for the kind of work load being placed on the database server.
You can specify the -fc option when starting the database server to implement a callback function when the database server encounters a file system full condition.
For more information, see -fc server option.
