Overview of Utilities

The Informix® database server utilities allow you to perform administrative tasks directly from the command line.

For a complete list of server utilities, see Informix administrative utilities and applications.

The database server utilities support multibyte command-line arguments. For a complete list of the utilities that support multibyte command-line arguments, see the Locale-specific support for utilities.

The database server must be online before you execute a utility, with the following exceptions:
  • oninit
  • Some onlog options
  • Some oncheck options
Note: When using utilities, do not use the UNIX command CTRL-C to send an interrupt signal to a process because it might produce an error.
