Suppose you find your IDS instance hung? There are users waiting and you need to run some diagnostics quickly.. what information do you collect? Hopefully you'll never be in that situation thanks to IDS's legendary uptime but it's good to be prepared..
A new Technote is available which includes a (UNIX) script to gather information that will be useful to Technical Support: What to collect if a IBM Informix IDS server gets hung. Give it a try and see what you think. You can enter feedback directly, or put it here and I'll forward it to the author.
