Many organizations use unified approach to collecting, storing and visualizing metrics from various sources using at least one of the few established platforms of which Prometheus+Grafana are probably the most prominent. It would be very beneficial if Informix Dynamic Server metrics would be exposed via the Prometheus exporter to support such integration.
Why is it useful?
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||All customers using Prometheus to collect their metrics and having Informix as one of the database servers would be able to instantly reap obvious benefits|
How should it work?
1) Proposed solution - implement an Informix specific Prometheus exporter as described here: https://prometheus.io/docs/instrumenting/exporters/
|Priority Justification||It would be nice to have, not a hard requirement|
