Backups taken with Informix® ON-Bar are recorded in a separate database called sysutils. This article explains how to create a plug-in for the Informix OpenAdminTool (OAT) to query and display a list of backups and restores along with additional information such as the date when a backup was verified. This information can be very helpful for administrators who are keeping an overview about the backup history.
