For example, if a client sends a new command followed by a cancel before SAP ASE finishes processing the current command, SAP ASE peeks into the operating system's receive buffer to the depth specified by max network peek depth. If the cancel occurs within the specified depth, both the current command and the command preceding the cancel are discarded, and SAP ASE waits for the next command.
