If you upgrade to either version 11.70xC3 or 11.50xC9 of IBM Informix, you can:
- Configure the actions that the server takes to continue processing when memory is critically low. You can specify the criteria for terminating sessions based on idle time, memory usage, and other factors so that the targeted application can continue and avoid out-of-memory problems. Configuring the low memory response is useful for embedded applications that have memory limitations.
- Reserve memory for use when critical activities (such as rollback activities) are needed and the server has limited free memory. If you reserve memory, the critical activities can complete even when you get out-of-memory errors.
