Latest InformixHQ version released along with Informix 14 database server do not have enough rich features to investigate the database server related some commonly used issues to drill down and identify the issues quickly and easily. The suggested feature list in the attached file are also commonly used by us to diagnose day today issues in various customer sites in more visualised manner. The last suggested feature Two Factor Authentication (2FA) support is also a nice to have feature to strengthen the security of the product.
Currently, we have our own inhouse build in tool to monitor and look at such possible metrix figures in any database server. However, the tool we are using is not an advanced one and does not leverage with the modern teachnology like informixHQ does. If we can incorporate suggested feature list into InformixHQ tool, I believe we have a complete single monitoring and administration solution to work with easily accross the board in all of the customer sites. Further, I believe these new features will be benifted not only for us but for the whole Informix community and gradually InformixHQ will become an advanced rich enabled featured product any one wish to be used by replacing any third party products being used in.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||I believe, Everyone in the Informix community|
How should it work?
Ideally, like currently implemented options, We would expect to have seperate page open with the detail mentioned in the above attachment for each functionality. 2FA support suggested to have an extra security layer as there is a chance both agent and server could be setup on the same host. The admin user (informix) could be selected the connectivity between cross servers.
Let me know , If any other detail you would like to know on this requirement?
|Priority Justification||Just to avoid remember all the command line stuff and in our organisation to avoid using duplicate monitoring tools.|
