    Unanswered: How to automate LOGICAL LOG backup ?

    I'm running a Informix 9.21 TC5 under Windows 2000 and got to make frequent logical log backups.

    Is it a way to automate this backup and maybe specify to ifx server a threshold from which the logical log backup has to be run ?

    Thanks for your help.

    Regards

    Automatic Logical log backup for informix, usually mean ontape -a , but this ontape -a
    will stop after backup process is finished, If you want informix to backup its logical log
    all the time you should use ontape -c (continueus logical log backup) instead.

    Many thanks for your reply.

    The problem is why can I specify ifx a threshold for filling of the log files from which the backup is launched.
