The Informix® Dynamic Server (IDS) OpenAdmin Tool (OAT) is a PHP-based, open source administration tool, supported on IDS 11.1 and later. In this article, you'll learn how to migrate from the Informix Server Administrator (ISA) to the OAT. This article also describes how the basic capabilities of ISA are made available on OAT, along with enhanced functionalities and greater ease-of-use. Since OAT is an open source tool, it is easy to modify, and you can tune it to meet your needs. Some of the distinct features that make OAT special are support for MACH (a new IDS 11 feature), the ability to manage multiple Informix servers from a single instance, an easy-to-use GUI, and automated update statistics.
