At present most of the Informix configuration parameters can be modified dynamically. Typically, users run 'onmode -wf' or 'onmode -wm' command to dynamically change a specific configuration parameter. But there may be a situation when you need to modify multiple parameters at once. For example, you have ten Informix instance and want to tune some of SQL statement cache configuration parameters on all the Informix instances.
Now, you can import a configuration file using onmode command to change multiple configuration... [More]

DB2 LUW is capable of running stored procedures and functions coded in several languages. Among these languages is Java. Since Java stored procedures and functions, (collectively referred to as routines) require a JVM there are some configuration settings that are specific to this type of routine. DB2 comes with a JDK and by default it is this JDK that is used to run Java routines. It is possible to alter DB2 to use another JDK to run Java routines. JDKs that are supported to run routines are documented in the DB2 infocenter for each release.... [More]

To license purchased DB2 LUW server products two licenses will need to be installed.
One license referred to... [More]

Customer was interested in removing the policy file than just turning off automatic maintenance. Even with automatic... [More]
