The infx command line interface provides easy access to any Informix maintenance action from the command line.
Each service provides its own complete environment, so you don’t have to worry about environment settings such as PATH, INFORMIXSERVER, INFORMIXDIR or ONCONFIG.
This makes them easy to use, and simple to schedule with tools like cron.
easy to manage
infx has tools you use to track its own execution.
The log files always get standard messages such as start & end time, error or other status information.
You can be notified by email of any error, or the execution status of any particular command.
