    Hello,

    I see that we need to set up a repository
    https://youtu.be/xsylAz5U1sY?t=2612

    But in the IBM doc I didn't find instructions for this
    https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/informix-servers/14.10?topic=administration-informixhq-guide

    Also,
    Is it preferable to set a a light server just for monitoring ?
    How much space for every monitored server is suitable ?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Yes, a repository DB is necessary. It is best to use your own Innovator-C instance for this. Then the productive instance is not stressed and it remains free. The Developer Edition reaches its session limit with 3 monitored instances. Whether this is okay from a licensing point of view is debatable. Unfortunately, IBM has not yet commented on how a repository server only for InformixHQ is to be evaluated license-wise.
    In my configuration (one monitored HDR pair) - I need about 4GB storage for the repository.

    I hope this helps.

    Hello Sh To,

    The repository is a normal Informix instance. Only the database needs to be created. InformixHQ creates the tables itself.

    My database runs fine with buffered log and DB_LOCALE en_us.819

    Most of your questions have been answered while I was away for a few days, but there is some additional input here:

    https://www.oninitgroup.com/faq-items/informixhq-setup

    We recommend reducing sensor frequency to 5 minutes. With the default retention of 30 days, your database will then only need around 100MB per HQ agent.
