Each release of Domino adds new and exciting features, which reminds me if this graphic
But a side-effect of this is that the memory space on 32bit Domino is getting more and more crowded and the amount of shared memory Domino is pushing into all the different Domino tasks continues to grow.
When memory gets tight, we've seen situations (particularly in FP2 and FP3 of Domino 8.5.2) where Domino no longer plays nice and sometimes tasks can be terminated even if idle.
With Defrag.NSF 2.09 we've moved all Defragmenation tasks into a separate process space to ensure that memory crowding (for us at least) will no longer be an issue. It also appears to have a slight performance benefit... very nice.
DBMT optimisation in the Real world - fantastic savings !
Mon, Dec 1st 2014 9:05p Adam Osborne With Defrag.NSF's DBMT optimisation set at 10% we see a reduction in compact activity of 76%. That's 76% less maintenance work for your servers. Less I/O, less transaction log changes, less full backups, the list goes on... Defrag.NSF more than just a defrag tool !!! [read] Keywords:
Almost One Million.......Almost!
Thu, Nov 27th 2014 11:25p Adam Osborne On several occasions now we have had Domino and SAN storage users come to us for help with their system (NTFS and Domino) basically crippled with fragmentation, after being told "they did not need to defrag because they were using SAN storage". WRONG! Here's a screen-shot taken from one such customer, almost 1 Million fragments! Do you really think Windows, Domino and Backups were performing well, or even aware of the super expensive, high powered back-end SAN storage? NO! Repeat after [read] Keywords: domino

Sun, Nov 23rd 2014 11:05p Adam Osborne Recently we were contacted by a customer who had been using Defrag.NSF on their servers but had stopped some time ago and realised things were starting to go downhill. This ended up being a great test case/exercise and we managed to get some very telling screenshots off the server, clearly showing the deterioration and subsequent improvement once we got things back on track. It turned out about a year had passed since the last Health Check had been run and things had definitely gotten worse, f [read] Keywords: domino

Do you have more then 7,792,058 fragments on your data volume?
Tue, Nov 4th 2014 8:05p Adam Osborne A few years back we ran a 'Most Fragmented' competition and found a Domino Server that had 7,792,058 fragments on it's data volume !!! Can you imagine what that was doing to performance and backup times ? Anyway, we'd like to do it again and see if there's anyone else out there we can help get their Server into shape. Here's what we'd love you to try: - Download a copy of a free Defrag Analyse product from here - Install it and run a Health Check as per the included instructions. [read] Keywords: domino
