Question: Why is Foxhound unresponsive when it starts?
Answer: This may be due to some problem that affects the normal ability of the Foxhound Monitor to
reconnect to target database(s) in order to resume sampling when Foxhound is restarted. This is not an
expected situation: even if Foxhound can't connect to the target databases it shouldn't become unresponsive.
In order to get Foxhound to respond so you can figure out what's going wrong, you can suppress the automatic reconnection process by
starting Foxhound in "safe mode",
also known as safe startup.
Here is an example of this scenario: A Foxhound Monitor session used the SQL Anywhere 11 ODBC driver to
connect to a local SQL Anywhere 8 target database server on a Windows Vista system where
no SQL Anywhere 8 ODBC driver software had been installed.
Not only did Foxhound become unresponsive, but restarting Foxhound didn't help until sampling was
stopped by using safe-mode startup.
How do I start Foxhound in "safe mode"?
How do I start Foxhound in "debug mode"?
How do I see Foxhound diagnostics, errors and exceptions?
