  • 1.  Changing SMX_NUMPIPES setting

    Posted Sat December 11, 2021 10:00 AM
    Running onmode -wf SMX_NUMPIPES throws an error.
    Informix version is 12.10.fc15.

    $ onmode -wf SMX_NUMPIPES=4
    Configuration Parameter to be changed is not valid or not supported
    with this option.

    However, the documentation states that the wf option is possible.
    Is the documentation wrong?

    Hi SangGyu,
    I have the same situation with Informix 14.10.FC7.
    You can't change SMX_NUMPIPES with "onmode -wm/wf", nor with "task/admin", Informix OAT, Informix HQ.
    I think the problem is that SMX_NUMPIPES is not dynamically tunable.
    I check also with "onstat -g cfg tunable" - there is no SMX_NUMPIPES.
    Regarding the documentation: the same situation with 14.10. Let say ... The documentation ... is not "very correct" ;-)

    Regards,

    Hi Boycho, Thanks for the reply.
    I completely trusted the documentation, but it seems to be wrong.
    Hopefully the documentation will be updated correctly. :)
