Q. What are "concurrent sessions" ?

A. Concurrent sessions are every logical connection existing at a given point in time between the Informix database and an end-user interface device. Each such existing connection is counted as a concurrent session whether or not it is actually in use. If an individual end user establishes multiple connections, each one is counted as a separate concurrent session, even if they share a common physical pathway. The number of connections is not reduced by any program or machine, such as a front-end server or multiplexer, which may be used to concentrate the connections. Each batch process being executed at the same time is also considered a concurrent session.
