The new server now has the same version of FreeTDS and the config are supposed to be the same as well. I tried the DBI tracing option on both servers which revealed that there is a maxlen set to 4000 on the one but only 255 on the new server which results in column contents being truncated. This is an excerpt of the DBI tracing (level 5):
-> prepare for DBD::Sybase::db (DBI::db=HASH(0x8d42418)~0x8d44360 'sel +ect details from LogEntry where logEntryId = 24516') thr#8b29008 New DBI::st (for DBD::Sybase::st, parent=DBI::db=HASH(0x8d44360), +id=) dbih_setup_handle(DBI::st=HASH(0x8d444c8)=>DBI::st=HASH(0x8d4433c) +, DBD::Sybase::st, 8d444d4, Null!) dbih_make_com(DBI::db=HASH(0x8d44360), 8d44c78, DBD::Sybase::st, 4 +20, 0) thr#8b29008 dbih_setup_attrib(DBI::st=HASH(0x8d4433c), Err, DBI::db=HASH(0x8d4 +4360)) SCALAR(0x8cbfd34) (already defined) dbih_setup_attrib(DBI::st=HASH(0x8d4433c), State, DBI::db=HASH(0x8 +d44360)) SCALAR(0x8cbfd94) (already defined) dbih_setup_attrib(DBI::st=HASH(0x8d4433c), Errstr, DBI::db=HASH(0x +8d44360)) SCALAR(0x8cbfd64) (already defined) dbih_setup_attrib(DBI::st=HASH(0x8d4433c), TraceLevel, DBI::db=HAS +H(0x8d44360)) 0 (already defined) dbih_setup_attrib(DBI::st=HASH(0x8d4433c), FetchHashKeyName, DBI:: +db=HASH(0x8d44360)) 'NAME' (already defined) dbih_setup_attrib(DBI::st=HASH(0x8d4433c), HandleSetErr, DBI::db=H +ASH(0x8d44360)) undef (not defined) dbih_setup_attrib(DBI::st=HASH(0x8d4433c), HandleError, DBI::db=HA +SH(0x8d44360)) undef (not defined) syb_st_prepare() -> inUse = 0 syb_st_prepare() -> set inUse <- prepare= DBI::st=HASH(0x8d444c8) at line 32 via line 18 -> execute for DBD::Sybase::st (DBI::st=HASH(0x8d444c8)~0x8d4433c) + thr#8b29008 syb_alloc_cmd() -> CS_COMMAND 8d58a70 for CS_CONNECTION 8c81840 cmd_execute() -> ct_command() OK cmd_execute() -> ct_send() OK cmd_execute() -> set inUse flag st_next_result() -> ct_results(4040) == 1 ct_res_info() returns 1 columns ct_describe(0): type = 1, maxlen = 255 describe() -> col 0, type 1, realtype 1 describe() retcode = 1 st_next_result() -> lasterr = 0, lastsev = 0 <- execute= -1 at line 33 via line 1 +8 -> fetchrow_array for DBD::Sybase::st (DBI::st=HASH(0x8d444c8)~0x8 +d4433c) thr#8b29008 dbih_setup_fbav for 1 fields => 0x8d45ed0 fix_fbav() -> num_fields = 1, numCols = 1 syb_st_fetch() -> ct_fetch() = 1 (1 rows) syb_st_fetch() -> 0/255/1 <- fetchrow_array=...
The question is: How do I set/override the maxlen? I have tried a couple of things, which haven't worked.

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
