Create an Informix-HQ sensor that populates an historical data table with the slowest/heaviest queries on an instance.
SQLTRACE has proved been a valuable resource to identify slow/heavy queries. An even sysadmin may store a history of the SQLTRACE output, it would be great to have a filter for the heaviest/slowest queries, and store them as a sensor of Informix-HQ.
It would be beneficial to have a readonly connection when accessing the database from third party software. Many products provide the ability to connect via JDBC but they also have the ability to make changes. Example LibreOffice Base can be setup...
Backup from RSS or HDR Secondaries using ontape, onunload, onbar, dbexport
In HDR enviroments, being able to backup or export databases from and HDR, HDR read-only, or an RSS secondary server is critical. Programs like ontape, onunload, dbexport, and onbar generate locks on tables during backups and data-exports. This cr...
Improve timestamp format in message and backup logs (ISO-8601)
Streaming messages to log ingestion systems, e.g. Elastic Stack, is a useful way of analysing logs and generating notifications when certain messages are seen. Displaying the messages in the right order when daylight saving switches occur is an is...
SSO (Single Sign-On) for ODBC connections via ActiveDirectory authentication
The current configuration of a SSO (Single Sign-On) authentication for a Windows workstation is based on GSSCSM, for which support will be discontinued in future Informix releases and is very complex and error-prone. Alternatively, ODBC connection...
Allow Bufferpool Min_lru_dirty and Max_lru_dirty Threshold values to be altered dynamically
onparams -b can be used to add a new bufferpool and AUTO_LRU_TUNING are available on informix server but first only adds a bufferpool of a new page size and the latter only kicks in if some foreground writes occur on a server which ideally is neve...
Expand DELETE syntax implementing LIMIT clause and maybe also ORDER BY. Delete syntax can be like: DELETE [FROM] tbl_name [WHERE where_condition ] [ORDER BY ...] [LIMIT row_count ] This limit + order by syntax is already implemented in other major...
We are trying to increase the usage of SP in our system environment. Migrating business code from 4GL to the database.But this process becomes very painful for our developers since the support for SPL is limited. Mainly the inexistence of a native...
