Hybrid App Development with Informix JSON Listener

My experience with the Informix JSON Listener and Mongo PHP driver for app development was not what I expected. It was in fact easier and more pleasant than I thought it would be.

Monitoring virtual segment usage and the CPU VP caches

A little while ago I was forced to look into detail into the memory usage of one of the production instances I look after. Specifically the problem was that the instance was allocating extra virtual segments to itself (via the SHMADD process) but it was a surprise because memory usage on this instance was being monitored and it clearly showed that memory usage was normal and well below the initial segment size.
