I am also posting this to comp.databases.informix, thread: Memory Leak
in IDS 7.31 UD4 for HP-UX 11.0

We have two instances, each on its own server (one in Dodge City, one
in Liberal).  Both have been behaving in the same fashion since the
upgrade.  The Dodge City one was the one that added another segment on
Saturday.  The Liberal server had been adding segments about a day
after the Dodge City one.

This doesn't apply, as our database engines are on different (but
identical) machines.

>apps that are running that can be consuming memory also?  

Yes, the Informix products are the only applications on the servers.

Even if other apps were running on the servers (they aren't), I don't
wee how any app that does not create a database connection could cause
the database to grab additional chunks of RAM.  Also, just before I
bounced each of the engines, I removed all user connections to the
database.  Even with only Informix's own internal sessions running
(the ones with pid of 0), onmode -F failed to recover any memory.
This, to me, very clearly points to something not being right in the
way the server is handling shared memory.
