Specifying Network Connections

In general, the DBSERVERNAME and DBSERVERALIASES parameters define dbservernames that have corresponding entries in the sqlhosts file or registry. Each dbservername parameter in sqlhosts has a nettype entry that specifies an interface/protocol combination. The database server runs one or more poll threads for each unique nettype entry.

The NETTYPE configuration parameter provides optional configuration information for an interface/protocol combination. You can use it to allocate more than one poll thread for an interface/protocol combination and also designate the virtual-processor class (CPU or NET) on which the poll threads run.

For a complete description of the NETTYPE configuration parameter, see the HCL Informix® Administrator's Reference.
