INFORMIXCONRETRY configuration parameter

Use the INFORMIXCONRETRY configuration parameter to specify the maximum number of connection attempts that can be made to each database server after the initial connection attempt fails. These attempts are made within the time limit that the INFORMIXCONTIME configuration parameter specifies.

onconfig.std value
Positive integers
takes effect
After you edit your onconfig file and restart the database server.
When you reset the value dynamically in your onconfig file by running the onmode -wf command.
When you reset the value in memory by running the onmode -wm command.


The INFORMIXCONTIME setting takes precedence over the INFORMIXCONRETRY setting. Connection attempts can end after the INFORMIXCONTIME value is exceeded, but before the INFORMIXCONRETRY value is reached.

To override the value of the INFORMIXCONRETRY configuration parameter for the current session, you can set either the INFORMIXCONRETRY environment option of the SET ENVIRONMENT statement or the client's INFORMIXCONRETRY environment variable.
