SQL Anywhere stops working when using remote a remote database with proxy tables

I am using SQLAnywhere Version 7.0.03.

I moved a number of tables from my master database to a second database 
using the proxy tables feature. 

My application no longer works properly. Prior to making the above change, 
we have operated for several years with no problems. 

What now happens in our mult-user system is we will doing some sort of 
database access (e.g. one user is doing an insert of blob data and another 
is selecting data (from a different table)) and everything gets hung up.

I read the documentation about proxy tables and there was the following 

"Queries blocked on themselves:

If you access multiple databases on a single Adaptive Server Anywhere 
server, you may need to increase the number of threads used by the database 
server on Windows NT using the -gx command-line switch.

You must have enough threads available to support the individual tasks that 
are being run by a query. Failure to provide the number of required tasks 
can lead to a query becoming blocked on itself."

I have a number of questions:

1.  How can I find what the current value is for the -gx setting?  (Your 
documentation says number of CPUs + 1).  I would like to confirm this by 
querying the server.

2.  If I am running HyperThreading on a 2 physical CPU box, should -gx be 
set to 5?  I had exactly the same problem I described with the proxy tables 
occur on a Dell 2650 with HyperThreading on.  I fixed that problem by 
turning HyperThreading off.  I am now thinking that the real fix may be to 
use the -gx command.

3.  Is there any technical article that discusses operating system threads 
and proper use of the -gx command?

4.  Can you run into problems by setting -gx to too big a number?

5.  For the case I have, a 2 CPU machine, one dbsrv7 accessing two 
databases (my master one and the second one which has proxy tables), is the 
fix for my problem to set -gx to 4? 

6.  Is the -gx command even the right thing to be looking at for by queries 
not responding problem or should I be looking at something else.

Using the SQL Remote Message Agent only for one remote user
Hello, Currently we have Sql Anywhere I was wondering if it was possible to use the SQL Remote Message Agent (dbremote.exe), at the consolidated, to run only for a specific remote user. We have for example a setup with 50 remote users at our consolidated. But we only want to run dbremote for remote_user20 if remote_user20 is online and requests to synchronize. We don't want dbremote at the consolidated to import all files from all 50 users and then make exports for 50 users if only remote_user20 is online. I'm aware of the fact that SQL Remote doesn...

SQL Anywhere Remote Crashes after extended use
I have two servers running Sybase SQL Anywhere 5.5.04 (or whatever the latest is). Anyway, the one database updates the other through the Remote using SMTP (updates are broken into mail messages, which are then pulled by the second database using POP). The problem that is occuring is that when the Remote is left running overnight, it crashes. The specs are: 2XPent 200 128Mb RAM, NT 4.0 SP3. The only messages in the event log are something about the SQLCTRS.DLL being unable to load (Event ID 2003) and an unknown from perflib (event ID 1008). Both of these are related to performance...

Replicating passwords from one remote database to other remote databases
I am attempting to replicate password changes from a remote database to the consolidated database to all other remote databases. The reason I am attempting this is we are implementing "multi-user" remote databases, where a db user created on the consolidated can be on one or more remote databases. I want to only allow remote users to change their db passwords, but have those password changes replicate to all other remote databases. My initial thought was to have a table that maintained db user name and encrypted password that would be subscribed to by all remote databas...

Multi-Tier replication using SQL Anywhere Remote (Follow up)
Any advise on this? That's my solution fow now. The laptops in the third tier are directly connecting to \\hq\dbs. But since I am using dial up, its clogging up my connection. I am looking for a solution wherein only the server in second site will use the dial up line, and eventually it will communicate these changes to other terminals using LAN. Any ideas?

Replication of consolidated database to remote database; for columns added to a table in the consolidated database.
I want to find out if I add columns to a data table in the consolidated database and then extract it for a remote database. Will the added columns appear in the remote database automatically? or do I have to deploy the extracted remote database by copying it to the remote machine. Currently the consolidated database and the remote database get replicated nightly and they have connections already established. Due to established connections, will the extracted database automatically get deployed to the remote machine with the updated table? Try it, that is the best way to check ...
