IIUG's webcast series, in collaboration with IBM, continues next week with a highly technical conference titled "Getting the Best Performance from the IBM Informix API Products".
This presentation will focus on how to reduce data processing time between client and server (and vice versa). Since the physical transfer of data to and from the server accounts for the lion's share of this time, emphasis is placed on optimization settings that ensure faster performance. To provide a rough estimate of how a particular optimization setting performs (under conditions where that setting is isolated as much as possible from other factors), some test results will be presented. Such topics as code-set and data-type conversion, object handling, and client-server communication will also be covered.
