If you have a DAOS enabled server with mail files or other databases like Document Libraries containing attachments on your servers that may have slipped through the administration cracks and not been enabled for DAOS participation, even though they should have been, (possibly as an administrative oversight?), this functionality in DDO will automatically DAOS enable those databases and get those attachments into DAOS, it will also automatically pick up any new databases created in the future without the administrator having to think about it, or chase it up.


An example of this DDO processing at work.
In this example (see below) we'll target a couple of databases that make decent candidates for DAOS participation, like most Document Libraries these are full of attachments, so these types of databases make great "low hanging fruit" for DAOS.


We can see below these database are currently not enabled for DAOS participation. Note the DAOS State and DAOS Count indicating this.



Tick the box to “DAOS enable all databases using the following templates” and enter the template name, you can enter multiple template names, mail templates, etc. If there are databases based on this template type that you don’t want DAOS’d enter the name(s) in the “Never DAOSify the following databases” field.


When the automatic maintenance schedule runs, DDO will enable DAOS participation in the targeted databases and the attachments will be moved out of the databases and into the DAOS store as part of the automated DDO maintenance.

Below, we see the results after the schedule ran, the same databases are now enabled for DAOS participation, the attachments have been moved out and as a result the space savings are significant.


Below, we can also see the DAOS State has changed to "Read/Write" and the DAOS count increased.





LZ1 Compression and Data Compression have also been enabled for the databases.

The databases have also been automatically compacted and defragged as part of the DDO workflow.




If you enable the “Automatically monitor DAOS synchronization” box DDO will automatically monitor the synchronization state of the DAOS catalog and as needed a DAOS resync operation can be automatically performed to re-count all the references to NLO files. If required DDO, will initiate a resyc of the DAOS catalog at 12:15AM. If a resync is not required the operation detects that there is no work to do, and will exit immediately.

Note: IBM best practice recommends that if the catalog state changes, a DAOS resync should be performed but, unless Daoscat.nsf has been damaged somehow, there is no immediate need to do a resync. All DAOS functions will continue to operate normally except for the 2AM prune operations, which will be postponed until the DAOS catalog state is SYNCHRONIZED again.

Additional Information about DAOS maintenance: Here

DDO makes this easier, working for you to automate, and improve Domino performance, I/O and backups (and your performance as a Domino Admin), it's all easier and automated.


Stay tuned, DDO will be available shortly and is a free update to all Defrag.NSF customers

DBMT Optimizations in DDO - real world example
Thu, Dec 8th 2016 2:09a   Adam Osborne
Further to my previous post on "DBMT Optimizations in DDO that can reduce its workload by over 90%" here is a real world screen shot of what is happening at one of our clients. Now that's optimization. Why not try DDO for yourself with a free 30 day trial?

DBMT Optimizations in DDO that can reduce its workload by over 90%
Thu, Dec 8th 2016 12:23a   Adam Osborne
DDO includes three optimizations to DBMT that make a dramatic difference in its workload: The first and most powerful setting is the “Only Compact when Freespace exceeds” fields on the Optimization Schedule. By setting this field a database can only become a candidate for DBMT compacting when the freespace within it exceed the amount specified. This avoids potentially processing hundreds of database where little, or no, freespace can be recovered. This dramatically reduces DBMT processin

What are the stages of optimization in DDO?
Fri, Dec 2nd 2016 3:16a   Adam Osborne
One of the great features of DDO is how it works through its optimization stages automatically to ensure you get the best 'bang for buck' from your Domino server. The first stage is ensuring database properties on databases inheriting design from the mail template (or other identified templates) are set correctly. Any databases out of line are quickly put back into line. Stage two optimization ensures databases that need to have DAOS applied, have it. Any new databases created based on the i

New product - The Domino Database Optimizer – DDO.
Thu, Dec 1st 2016 4:32a   Adam Osborne
We are delighted to announce the general availability of our new product - The Domino Database Optimizer – DDO. The DDO combines the power of DBMT, with the intelligence of an inbuilt configuration tuner while also integrating everything we’ve learned developing Defrag.NSF. We’ve wrapped it in a single application, with a super easy to use user interface and scheduler. It is designed to work on all types of storage systems from direct attached, SSD, NSA, SAN or virtual. No matter what

News from the Lab - System Database Optimization - So easy with DDO!
Sun, Jul 17th 2016 6:39p   Adam Osborne
We often see customers with bloated System databases that never seem to get compacted/maintained (you know the ones.... log.nsf, etc) because.....well it's just a hassle for many admins to shut down and manually do it. As a result, because these databases are missing out on some much needed maintenance, can get pretty huge and often respond sluggishly when they do need to be opened and with many GB of disk space trapped inside are just wasting disk space too, it all adds up costing time and mon

Arriving soon.. The Domino Database Optimizer.
Thu, Jun 23rd 2016 11:58p   Adam Osborne
For the last six months we've been working on our next Domino product, The Domino Database Optimizer. The DDO (Domino Database Optimizer) is a database-oriented utility that automates and greatly simplifies the optimization of Domino databases and their maintenance. All activities are done through an integrated control panel where tasks can be done either manually or scheduled for overnight processing. The primary focus of the DDO is maximising the performance of your databases and the Domin

The Domino Database Optimizer. Our new product is on its way - Preliminary testing on SSD
Sun, May 15th 2016 11:19p   Adam Osborne
Our new product is undergoing preliminary testing in our lab and is showing some great performance gains even with Domino attached to the latest SSD storage technology. We are using lightning-fast SSD storage here and seeing these results. It's further proof that even though a super-fast storage/back end will help it is not a complete performance solution and in fact true optimal performance results from acknowledging and tuning each individual component of a system.
