Informix Monitoring & Management

IBM Informix is a well established relational database management system (RDBMS) used in many high transaction rate OLTP applications across retail, finance, energy and utilties, manufacturing and transportation industries. More recently the server has been enhanced to support data warehouse workloads. Additionally, Informix server supports the object-relational model, which allows specialized extensions that support data types that are not a part of the SQL standard, such as data type support and language extensions that permit high performance domain specific queries and efficient storage for datasets based around time series and spatial data.

With long running support for this database, Hyperic auto-discovers and monitors key metrics to help administrators understand database workload, and identify if users are able to connect, and if the database has sufficient space and memory to function.
