Connection Properties window: General tab

This tab has the following components:

  • Connection ID   Shows the connection ID for the user.

    When a user connects to a database, the database server assigns the connection a unique connection ID. For each new connection to the database server, the server increments the connection ID value by 1.

  • Type   Shows the type of object.

  • User   Shows the database user ID.

  • Connection name   Shows the connection name for the database the user is connected to. Naming your connections makes it easy to distinguish between multiple connections to the same database, or multiple connections to the same or different database server.

  • Communication link   Shows the type of communications link used by the user's connection. If the connection is between a SQL Anywhere client and network database server, the link type represents the network protocol being used.

  • Node address   Shows the node for the client in a client/server connection. When the client and server are both on the same computer, an empty string is returned.

  • Last request type   Shows the type of the last request.

  • Last request time   Shows the time at which the last request for the connection started.

  • Blocked on connection   Shows whether the connection is blocked. If the current connection is not blocked, this field is blank. If it is blocked, the connection number on which the connection is blocked because of a locking conflict is shown.
