Fix FLOAT error in Informix HQ

Hello Team,

I am seeing following error when I click on UI->System Reports->

SQL with the Most Buffer Activity

"Value will not fit in a FLOAT."

Error occurs for the following System reports too:

SQL with the Most Buffer Activity

SQL with the Most I/O Time

SQL with the Most Memory

Sometimes it gives the required output but most of the times it displays above error.

This happens in InformixHQ 2.0.0 and in 1.5.0 versions

Recently, also we installed a Tool - Sentinel Server Studio. We were told by the Vendor of this tool (AGS) that this FLOAT error does not occur with their tool.

AGS mentioned that they were using 'double' datatype in their tool to over come this issue

So, my request: is it possible to provide a special build of InformixHQ 1.5 with this error fixed?
