Informix Multi Instance on zVM

SYSTEM: Informix on zLinux on ZVM 6.1 zLinux 11.2
Action: Multi Instance (Residency) performance issues

Informix Enterprise server is used for our Electronic Court system at the State of Mississippi.

In order to save cost on system resources we decided to combine separate servers into Multi Instance type configuration with each instance being independent.

We using HDR type Replication and cloning the database to the HDR Replication server.

After completing these, we notice IFL utilization now runs on the Replication Server at 100 - 300% IFL utilization.\

The Replica Server SHOULD be at the same utilization as the Primary, which is only 2 - 5% IFL Utilization.
