In the midst of several database offerings, IBM Informix is one such database server that is well known for its ease of use, high levels of performance and scalability due to which it is largely deployed in many business applications.
To make sure that the Informix database server is highly available for business applications, Applications Manager helps in collecting the necessary performance metrics which detects probable issues in the early stages ?itself and helps in faster troubleshooting.
Keep track of slowdown in database performance by measuring the time taken to establish a connection with the Informix Server.
Monitor database storage details (free, used and allocated space) to efficiently utilize database space. Also, track details of the number of read and write operations that have been performed for tuning application loads on the database.
There are certain cases where some configuration files, which may have been used in the earlier versions of the database server, may have been deprecated or removed. By tracking the mode of config parameters like Is Log, Is Buf Log, Is ANSI, etc. users can ensure that all database configurations are in place and are the same.
Know more about the number of sessions actively running a query and the number of users waiting to execute in Informix, by knowing details like session id and the host on which the database is running.
Users can execute custom based queries associated with a particular application and track metrics to analyze the result. This way, users can quickly deduce if any problem ?exists with application connectivity to the database.
