You can choose to create and configure a server during the installation of IBM® Informix® version 12.10.xC3. The server is configured by the choices that you make in the installation program and started after installation is complete. The resulting server is configured to require minimal administration. Creating a server during installation is not just for demonstration purposes anymore!
The mandatory configuration parameters and environment variables are set and connectivity information is configured.
The following storage spaces are created for the server:
- An extendable plogspace for the physical log
- A dbspace for the logical log
- Dbspaces with the default page size and with an 8 KB page size for databases and tables
- A temporary dbspace
- An sbspace
- A temporary sbspace
The sizes of the spaces are based on the number of expected users that you specify during the installation.
The server is configured to automatically tune resources for performance, which includes expanding the buffer pool, the logical logs, and the physical log, and increasing virtual processors.
IBM® OpenAdmin Tool (OAT) for Informix® is configured and connected to the server.
The JSON wire listener is configured, started, and connected to the server through the ifxjson user.
Take the easy way out and let the installer do all the work of configuring the server for you!
