Informix is initially configured to interact with clients using the SQLI, DRDA, Mongo, and REST protocols and to run with a small bufferpool on a single CPU VP. If you've ordered a larger EC2 type and want to get more power from Informix please consider increasing the number of CPU VPs as well as the bufferpool.
