Modifying a service level agreement

Modify a service level agreement for a grid, a cluster, a replicate set, or a server set by using a Connection Manager.

Prerequisites: For the Connection Manager, the HCL OpenAdmin Tool (OAT) for Informix® requires Informix 11.70.xC3 and the Connection Manager that is packaged with Informix 11.70.xC3 or with HCL Informix Client Software Development Kit (Client SDK) 3.70.xC3.

A service level agreement (SLA) is a contract between specified client applications and their service providers, in this case, Informix database servers. Based on service level agreements, the Connection Manager connects the client applications to the appropriate servers. The Connection Manager accepts client connection requests and either redirects the requests to the appropriate server or functions as a proxy server between the client applications and the servers.

A Connection Manager provides load balancing and directs client connection requests to the appropriate server in a connection unit based on service level agreements (SLA). A connection unit is a collection of database servers in a grid, a high-availability cluster, a replicate set, or a server set.

To modify a service level agreement:

  1. On the OAT menu, click Replication > Connection Manager.
  2. Click the Connection Manager.
  3. Click the grid, cluster, replicate set, or server set.
  4. Click the SLA tab.
  5. Click the SLA in the list.
  6. On the Actions menu, click Modify an SLA.
  7. Complete the wizard.
