Option Description
onstat -g env Displays the settings of environment variables when the database server was started Does not display environment variables that have not been set explicitly.
onstat -g env all Displays the settings used by all sessions This display is the same as the output of onstat -g env and onstat -g envsessionid iteratively on all current sessions.
onstat -g env variable Displays the default value of the specified environment variable
onstat -g env sessionid Displays the settings that a specific session uses. This display includes the following values: Set in the environment of the session Assigned by the database server, as onstat -g env displays
onstat -g env sessionid variable Displays the value of the specified environment variable that the specified session uses The sessionid and variable arguments eliminate the need to pipe the output to grep (or some other utility) to locate an environment variable among many that might be set.


    The onstat -g env command displays the current setting of an environment variable and the complete list of values each time the variable was set in the environment. For example, if PDQPRIORITY is set to 10 in the .informix.rc file and set to 55 in the shell environment, onstat -g env command displays both values.

    However, if you change the PDQPRIORITY with the onmode -q pdqpriority sessionid command, the onstat -g env command does not display the new value for the session. The onstat -g env command displays only the values of environment variables set in the environment. It does not display values modified while the session is running.

    The information can be accessed via sysmaster:sysenv, but only the environment variables that are directly related to Informix so if export MYENV_VAL=1 would not be available. However, the following UDR will access any enviroment variable
