OAT replacement

Sat, 01 Jul 2017 01:14:06 GMT

Can anyone provide an update on status of the OAT replacement? We need this updated tool as OAT is no longer supported and we have several audits that require patching of this tool. Last time there was an update was back at World of Watson in 2016 and it was an engineering build at that time.

BTW, OAT was updated in the 12.10.xC8W1 and 11.70.xC9 releases earlier in 2017. OAT is still supported and shipped in the current 12.10.xC9 that is pending release. There has been announcement of stopping support but if it ships it will be supported.

Hi @ngeib, is there any way to try your tool? I'm currently looking for OAT replacement too, so I'd be very interested.

Yes @brylant. I've added you to the list too. Thanks for your interest!

Hi, any news on OAT replacement? I'm very curious and can't wait to see it in action. @ngeib, is there any progress? Is there any way we could help?

Happy to check out the new tool too.

We're making progress. Stay tuned...

Great @ngeib! Can't wait for it (fingers crossed)

Hi @ngeib - I've just joined the group. Can you provide any details on the new tool. We currently use a mixture of OAT and Server Studio for monitoring our Informix DB's. TIA.

We're still developing the tool; going through the process of under what license via which company (IBM and/or HCL) it would be released. Not as quick as I'd like but progressing.

Good job Ngeib!

Thanks for the response. Will keep an eye out for a release. Cheers

The day has come: Announcement is coming.

Wow! This is pretty amazing :) Just started playing with it and I must say it's a huge leap when comparing with OAT! Great work!

Thank you for this new tool.

The documentation indicates that Informix 12.10 is a prerequisite. Does this tool only support 12.10+ Informix databases or is a 12.10 database required for the repository.

Informix HQ was built to monitor and administer 12.10 (and later) servers. It also needs 12.10 (or later) for the repository. Will some features work on earlier servers? Probably, but this hasn't been our focus.

Where is Informix HQ now?? Its been months...

InformixHQ ships with the new Informix release which is coming soon. After that release it should also release in an upcoming 12.10 fixpack tentively sometime in the middle of the year.

Informix HQ shipped with v14.10 which went GA this week and should now be available.
