QSqlDatabase: How to close socket connection after network is unplug

  • When I unplug Ethernet cable and then try to execute any QSqlQuery or call db.close(), db.commit(), etc.. These calls block the thread, until I plug cable back, it can be very long time. Also db.isOpen() everything is true. How do I force a break db connection if I know that the network connection was lost?

    I test it with FireBird.

    I don't think you can, TCP doesn't break connections when you unplug cables. You have to put timeouts in. AFAIK anyway.

  • I do not need a timeout. I already know that the connection is broken. The question is how do I break the connection in QSqlDatabase object? Because db.close() block the thread and query.exec() block thread too and not close TCP connection just freezed.

    You may know the connection is broken, but TCP does not. So far as I know, it works by trying stuff and abandoning after a timeout. I don't know if you can do anything to avert that behaviour.
