I m trying to figure out splunk connection to informix dbs. So far I couldn't find any Q/A or document describes the configuration. Are there anyone help me out on steps that we could have reference for future questions?

-edit: Lets change the question little bit that it might be more generic. What is the way to connect any unspported database from splunk via dbconnect?

connection and define inputs for that
database.

But if you wish to connect a MySQL,
Oracle, DB2 or Informix database to
Splunk via Splunk DB Connect, you must
download and install the correct JDBC
drivers, as follows:

You might also check out this doc, which covers the basic steps for configuring a database connection in DB Connect, and provides some specific info on setting up informix transaction isolation levels:
