The onbar backup verification process runs in serial and takes a long time to complete for large databases (60+ hours to complete for an 800GB database). It would be helpful if the backup verification process could run in parallel, similar to how the ISM backup process is able to write multiple backup files at the same time. Verifying backup files in parallel is one suggestion for shortening the time it takes to complete. Any other suggestions to make the utility run faster are welcome. I would like to add this as a feature request to Informix.
The command I'm using to verify the backups is: onbar_d -v -t "2014-02-15 12:00:00"
