Local and Remote Processing

Informix Load supports both local bulk loading and remote bulk loading.

To achieve maximum bulk-loading performance, use the Informix Load stage locally on the same machine where the Informix database server is located. The default settings in the Informix Load stage assume the local bulk-loading processing.

In the case of the local processing, the only required link-level settings for the Informix Load stage are the following:

  • Database Server Name
  • Database Name
  • Table Name (if the custom control file is not present)

Additional link-level properties, however, may be used to customize or increase the scope of the Informix Load stage, for example, allowing for remote bulk loading.
