The Informix Dynamic Server is a database server that manages traditional relational, object-relational, and web-based databases. It supports alphanumeric and rich data, such as graphics, multimedia, geospatial, HTML, and user-defined types. It is typically used on UNIX, Linux, or Windows with online transaction processing (OLTP), data marts, data warehouses, and e-business applications. Any operational inefficiency or non-availability of the Informix server can therefore adversely impact the performance of the e-business application it supports, causing the business itself to suffer. To avoid such adversities, it is imperative that the Informix server is monitored, and performance problems instantly brought to the attention of the administrator. This can be achieved using eG Enterprise.
