Connection information set in the NETTYPE configuration parameter

The NETTYPE configuration parameter lets you adjust the number and type of virtual processors the database server uses for communication. Each type of network connection (for example, ipcshm or soctcp) can have a separate NETTYPE entry in the configuration file.

Recommendation: Although the NETTYPE parameter is not a required parameter, you must set NETTYPE if you use two or more connection types. After the database server is running for some time, you can use the NETTYPE configuration parameter to tune the database server for better performance.

For more information about NETTYPE, see Network virtual processors. For information about the NETTYPE configuration parameter, see the HCL Informix® Administrator's Reference.
