This course covers all aspects of monitoring and maintaining a Domino Server. Domino’s self-monitoring capabilities have expanded with each revision, the latest being Domino Domain Monitoring.
With this knowledge you will better understand the recommendations on how to increase server reliability and improve server and database performance.
Lotus Training Learning Objectives
In this course, you will learn how to:
Lotus Training Audience
- Use the Domino Server Log to focus on specific operational areas, adjust various logging levels, apply log filters, and use the Log Analysis tool to identify particular server events over time.
- View statistical counters related to server performance and capacity, collect statistics from multiple servers, chart specific statistics in real time, and chart past statistics to get a sense of emerging trends.
- Use several methods to view database and server activity including the granular server and database activity data provided by the Activity Trends Collector Server, which can be reported as current observations and historical trends.
- Monitor overall server and individual task status and health.
- Define Event Generators to keep watch on many aspects of how Domino is running, and define Event Handlers to respond to the events.
- Configure Domino Domain Monitoring to automate problem analysis and provide possible solutions and corrective actions to quickly resolve issues.
- Evaluate server settings according to best practices using the Domino Configuration Tuner.
- Start Domino under the Domino Controller and then use the Domino Console to remotely control the server as well as issue operating system shell commands on the remote server computer.
- Configure Domino to automatically restart after a crash and how to collect diagnostic files following a crash in a central repository for further analysis.
- Perform routine maintenance on the server and to recover from database corruption using various database utilities.
- Run server tasks, including database utilities, on a schedule using Program documents.
- Determine which anti-virus and backup software packages are available for Domino.
- Learn how to use the Server.Load utility to stress a server so that you can monitor its performance as you fine tune its settings, optimize applications, balance workload between servers, optimize the Domino Directory, and enable network compression.
- Determine when to upgrade the server hardware and understand which changes affect different aspects of performance.
- Decide when to cluster servers to benefit from automatic failover and load balancing.
- Configure servers to assume specialized roles, such as mail routing or replication hub, mail, directory, remote office, etc.
