Domino Server Inspection

Does anybody knows a good guide to make a Domino Server Inspection? or maybe things that I can check to know that everything is OK on the server in a way that can be documented. I need to inform how's everything on the server, the databases, server tasks, memory, CPU, etc.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There are logs and many other things you can start looking at but if you want everything and if you want to have it all organized and easy to understand then you almost need to use IBM’s Tivoli for Domino. They charge about $650 per processor but I think it is a very good tool.

    The Tivoli product plug in for Domino is great for this... and I would have to say I would choose it any day for trending and performance monitoring. You can look at individual characteristics of your server, such as processor, server tasks, etc. using the Server Monitor in your admin client. Go to the Server tab and then to the Sub-Tab for Monitoring. Click on the Start button to the right to commence active monitoring. You can right click and add tasks and attributes you would like to monitor from the client, and set the frequency your client polls the server in your admin properties. Also, if you just want to go look at your statistics you can see that in your Admin client...again under the Server tab... and then click on the Statistics Sub-Tab. I hope that was some help. Take care and good luck.

    In addition to everything mentioned look over log.nsf and your admin4.nsf databases. On your log.nsf you may see errors that repeat themselves and those are usually easy to clear up. The admin4.nsf will have errors from the things running at night when they don't work as planned. I run a few agents in the evening and I may not know when they don't run except by looking in this database. Don't forget your event monitor on the server itself because tuning your server can oftentimes improve Domino performance. There are reports you can run through Domino and other things to watch but I think that if you wanted every detail it would be better for you to read one of the books out there instead of reading a huge email from me. My favorite book is "Using Lotus Notes and Domino 6" by Jeff Gunther and Randall Tamura.

    Hi to all, the first look is alway to the domino admin doku. Look at the section Servver adminstration - here are all your tasks listed. The second view is always to the notes.net "www.notes.net". Her you get all thinks you want to know. Look at the "sandbox" and search for a tool called "log analyser" or someting like that. It analyses your notes log.nsf fore every thing you want and informs you if want per eMail. If you start with keywords like error, unable, not, etc. you can refine your loganalyses day by day. And if you document your errors in a document database and link the error reports to the solutions your work gets very easy. (or you buy this solution - ask me - its a tuned version) Volker
