quiescent mode


Mode that provides restrict access to the database. Only user root and informix can access an IDS instance in quiescent mode, normal users are defeated. When the database server changes from offline mode to quiescent mode, the database server initializes shared memory. Only administrators can access the database server to perform maintenance functions that do not involve the execution of SQL and DDL statements.

Offline to Quiescent

oninit -s

Quiescent to Offline

onmode -ky

Quiescent to Online

onmode -m

Online to Quiescent

onmode -uy

This will immediately kill all attached database sessions and switches the IDS instance to quiescent mode. If you prefer a graceful shutdown, which switches to quiescent mode not until all attached sessions disconnected from the IDS instance, you can use:

onmode -sy
