CM should report client IP and SLA when errors occur
Our connection managers routinely log failed client attempts to connect via the CM, but when this happens, it doesn't report the client's IP nor does it report the name of the SLA via which it's trying to connect. Both of these would be incredibly...
I would like the ability to create database/SPL's using Informix 4GL syntax and features. I know forms and such wouldn't work but I could then leverage legacy into efficient data retrieval processes for for Java and Typescript to access
I would like the ability to define a global statement and global cursor that can be shared between routines within a single session. This would allow for modular code and create tremendous increases in performance and memoory usuage
Informix HQ - API calls for Groups/Servers administration
Hello Team, I am aware that we can create/add/delete Servers/Groups via InformixHQ UI as admin. Are there API calls that I can use with curl for add/delete/modify Servers/Groups ? This will help in automating end-to-end configuration of Informix H...
We would like to use incremental backups with 'onbar'. However this is difficult because we use storagepools and chunks can be added at any time. Once a chunk has been added this forces a L0 backup of at least the dbspace concerned and the root db...
I was doing DB development in an Ubuntu/Linux enviornment using PERL. PERL has a database abstraction layer called DBI. Supports preparing queries to both MySQL and Informix with no changes. It does rely on a lower layer DB interface driver, for I...
L0 and L1 backups of informix are taking almost same time since it seems that is limited by disk reading performance: we are using IBM spectrum backup to backup.
From IFX logs we see that they are using /usr/informix/server12/bin/onbar_d...
Allow Bufferpool Min_lru_dirty and Max_lru_dirty Threshold values to be altered dynamically
onparams -b can be used to add a new bufferpool and AUTO_LRU_TUNING are available on informix server but first only adds a bufferpool of a new page size and the latter only kicks in if some foreground writes occur on a server which ideally is neve...
Request for an Informix CSDK port for MAC OS M1 processor
Is Informix CSDK 4.1x or 4.5x ported for MAC OS M1 processor? Seems like the last one available is x86_64 4.10 and I saw someone asking for a port in Dec 2021 with no response. Maybe there are some specific steps to run as a workaround using the e...
One of the least enjoyable tasks is to using the archecker utility. Many times we need to restore just a row and/or rows in a table from an ontape backup. Restoring an entire database is easy from the command line. It would be very helpful if HQ c...
