It is getting very crowded in Domino 32bit
   

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.

For more information on Defrag.NSF please check our website at www.preemptive.com.au/defrag

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

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 database server

Save administration time and money - It's a case of getting what you pay for!
Wed, Nov 19th 2014 10:45a   Adam Osborne
Despite it's name Defrag.NSF is actually a super efficient and time-saving database maintenance "Control Centre", that does a heck of a lot more than defragging. It's integrated with the Domino Admin client, offers centralised scheduling and automation for DBMT, Compacting, Fixups, Health Reports, DAOS enablement (Watch this space for a demo of this great feature) and all fully integrated of course with our revolutionary, purpose built for Domino, defragging engine. Obviously with this ki [read] Keywords: admin administration domino database server

DLP for Traveler - stop sensitive data leaking through Traveler
Mon, Nov 10th 2014 5:46p   Adam Osborne
In a world where BYOD strategies are becoming more and more relevant, Preemptive’s DLP for Traveler provides an integrated solution for organisations to ensure valuable email data and attachments are not exposed to remote devices that cannot be secured by the organisation. DLP for Traveler inspects email destined for the mobile device for keywords and sensitivity markings in the subject line, and tells Traveler to block the content as appropriate. All the information on DLP for Traveler can [read] Keywords: traveler email mobile

If you're going to do it, Save money and Switch to Exchange, don't migrate!
Thu, Nov 6th 2014 5:06p   Adam Osborne
Globally more and more customers are moving from Domino to Exchange or some other cloud based solution. The migration process typically comes at a significant cost, and requires the purchase of expensive migration tools that are then just 'thrown away' .There's a better way. A decade ago Preemptive Consulting developed an Email Archiving Vault that can store ALL email moving within an organisation. It provides full auditing capabilities and allows end users to retrieve their own email. The V [read] Keywords: domino archiving consulting email exchange exchange outlook smtp

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 server

Does it really make sense to defrag Domino data on a SAN or in a VM ?
Thu, Oct 30th 2014 3:28p   Adam Osborne
We hear this a lot, "My ESX admins say we don't need to defrag Domino because it is running on a virtual platform", or even this chestnut, "Our storage is SAN based and our SAN admins are saying we don't need to defrag Domino". So does it really make sense to defrag Domino in these circumstances? Takes deep breath!....... Yes it does make sense to defrag your virtualized Domino servers running in a VMWare environment (or SAN connected) and we have many Defrag.NSF customers running their D [read] Keywords: administration domino ibm lotus server vm vmware

Who out there is using DBMT ?
Thu, Oct 9th 2014 11:05p   Adam Osborne
The latest build of Defrag.NSF includes a new feature that can dramatically cut down the amount of work DBMT does, you can read all about it here and here. When working on this feature we did wonder one thing, Who out there is using DBMT ? Please take a moment to answer our poll on the right. We will share the answers when they come in.
