Domino Fragmentation Analyzer's first major find - 13,954,029 Fragments on a single server
Wed, Sep 2nd 2015 9:29p   Adam Osborne
We just got the following report in from a server (9.0.1 FP 3) with 2000 users on it. Lots of data, and long backup times. It's a mess, with nearly 14 million fragments (one NSF file has over 173 thousand). The good news is, here we have an opportunity to improve performance in a huge way! They didn't know... and now they do.. check to see what DFA might be able to tell you!

New free tool - Domino Fragmentation Analyzer

Domino Fragmentation Analyzer A new Free and easy to use tool that runs in a Command Prompt and will quickly analyse Domino and produce a comprehensive report of fragmented nsf files. The DFA concentrates only on analyzing nsf files and will highlight the total number of nsf files fragmented, how many fragments each of those files are in, the most fragmented nsf file and also freespace info for the drive hosting the Domino Data directory, including freespace fragments and the size of the larges

SANs and VMs still need help

Don't ignore fragmentation on your VMs and SANs, things still get very messy and at the end of the day the poor old operating system knows no better and it all slows down. Let Defrag.NSF rescue your Domino Server and Backups from I/O bankruptcy. Here is example of one site that recently took back control.

Check it out.. and on top of that we have ex-customers telling us that Microsoft have 'paid' for their migration. What next ?... negative interest rates... oh wait.....

Friday flash back - Do you have Message Tracking enabled?
Thu, Mar 26th 2015 8:03p   Adam Osborne
From November 2012.. Do you have Message Tracking enabled? If you do then you should know the Mail Tracking Store database must have a Full Text Index in order for Message Tracking to work properly, the mtstore.nsf database is indexed only by the MTC task and just as we saw with the Updater in the last blog this indexing process creates extensive fragmentation over time. Have you ever checked the size of the Full Text Index (mtstore.ft) associated with this database? Take a minute or two to

From ConnectED all I can see is focus on the Basic Client... not much else... Let me know your thoughts ?

Here is a recording of Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing" by my brother Grant. He's playing a Martin OM21 Special sitting on his lounge with a Apogee MiC 96k connected to a Macbook Pro. It is a single take. I hope you like it. Little Wing

Part 2 - How to set up Database Maintenance Tool Optimisation in 3 steps. The Results

As promised here we are checking back after our schedule has run to look at the results of our 3 step DBMT Optimisation setup which we stepped through in our previous post here: http://ab1osborne.blogspot.com.au/2015/02/how-to-set-up-database-maintenance-tool.html The DBMT stats show it kicked off at our scheduled time, only 10 databases had more than 10% freespace and therefore only these required compacting according to the settings we chose on the control panel - this is a massive 92% savin

How to set up Database Maintenance Tool (DBMT) Optimisation 1-2-3
Tue, Feb 24th 2015 12:17a   Adam Osborne
Follow these 3 steps below (or just 2 if you already have Defrag.NSF) and you will have: Server I/O = Less Compacting = Less DBIID Changes = Less Fragmentation = Less Backup requirements = Less Backup times = Less Server restart time when TXN Log or Consistency Checking required = Less View Rebuild times = Less To-Do List items for the Administrator = Less Interested? Read On..... Step 1. Install Defrag.NSF - it's a Notes database, easy as pie! (If you already have Defrag.NSF go directly to

You'll find it in Defrag.NSF. Simple, easy to use and super efficient. See more at How to make DBMT 50%+ more efficient and DBMT compact optimization in action.
