At a customer today I wanted to implemented the new IBM Domino feature of having the view index outside the NSF. First I upgraded to FP8 IF3, then I updated notes.ini from the configuration document with the new setting NIFNSFEnable=1 and restarted the server. I then wanted to start carefully with one database only ...with something like "load compact -c -nifnsf on databasename.nsf". Lesson 1) Unfortunately I misspelled the database path and hit enter. To my surprise the Domino server did not just report back in the console that the database could not be found, ...instead is started compacting on ALL DATABASES! Not quit what I expected or wanted .... but I let it continue Lesson learned...software does not always act as expected ...act accordingly..get you spelling in order! Lesson 2) I kept an eye on the compacting and I noticed that one big database (GB) just barely got touched only creating a small NDX file and the compacting moved on. I am a little unsure what to expect now. My guess that it created some kind of "stub", because the database most likely was in use it could not compact it. So I hope that when DBMT starts compacting it will finish the job....but I am not sure, may need to run the ""load compact -c -nifnsf " again. Lesson learned ... it is always "fun" when software stops in the middle of doing something ...what is going to happen next? Lesson 3) OK this one i primarily my fault,... I got the great idea ..why not open the NDX file in the Domino Designer and have a look around? Lesson learned... don't do that... your server will come to a grinding halt... You are probably not meant poke around in a NDX database ;-) I am sure there is plenty more to be learned...

IBM Domino and DIIOP - not quit doing what it is supposed to.
Sun, Oct 1st 2017 9:15p   Jesper Kiaer
I am using DIIOP to have remote session with a Domino server, because using Java agent just gave to many issues with some external libraries. While DIIOP may not be the fastest way to work with data on a IBM Domino server, it usually does the job...well sort of.. I've just found out when using richtextitem.embedobject the name parameter of the file does not work, so the attachment gets this reeeeaaally long name ...including the file path. Also I needed to create a text file on the server so

Maven - how to get dependency JAR files in build too

Maven may be smart to some ....but it is also a bloody XML nightmare, where many things can go wrong ...(or maybe it just me being stupid) Just a reminder to myself....when I want to have dependency JAR files in build too , add this to pom.xml file org.apache.maven.plugins maven-dependency-plugin copy-dependencies prepare-package copy-dependencies ${project.build.directory}/classes/lib false false true org.apache.maven.plugins maven-jar-plugin true

IBM Domino, a very annoying performance issue now SOLVED
Tue, Aug 29th 2017 9:52a   Jesper Kiaer
For the past years a customer of mine has had IBM Domino performance issues with a Domino Server. The issue concerned was really felt when working with attachments. The company has small offices around the world, so we use SmartUpgrade (which in general works well) to manage Notes Feature Pack upgrades. We attach the Feature Pack as an attachment in the SmartUpgrade database and use a Policy to push it to users. Normally this is very fast, but for one server it would maybe take 5 hours to dow

Making "X-Forwarded-For" log feature IBM Domino FP8 actually work
Wed, May 17th 2017 11:04a   Jesper Kiaer
In March I wrote about the new log feature in IBM Domino in connection with using a Reverse Proxy. http://nevermind.dk/nevermind/blog.nsf/subject/new-logging-feature-in-ibm-domino-fp8-when-using-reverse-proxy---x-forwarded-for The issue is that you will always get the IP address of the Reverse Proxy in you HTTP log files and not the actual IP of the user. This is what the HTTP header "X-Forwarded-For" is used for, however pre FP8 is was not supported on IBM Domino server. In FP8 it is support

New logging feature in IBM Domino FP8 when using Reverse Proxy - X-Forwarded-For
Tue, Mar 28th 2017 3:28p   Jesper Kiaer
When using a Reverse Proxy (like NGINX) is in front of a IBM Domino web server you have the issue that the IP address of the client accessing the Domino web server is not forwarded to the log files on the Domino server. What you get is the IP address of the Reverse Proxy instead...which is not very helpful. This is normally fixed by the Reverse Proxy server adding a HTTP header field called "X-Forwarded-For" (XFF) which the web server then can log. Unfortunately the IBM Domino web server wil

IBM Domino: Moving the view indexes outside the NSF database
Mon, Mar 13th 2017 1:23p   Jesper Kiaer
As a new feature in IBM Domino Feature Pack 8 (FP8) for IBM Domino 9.0.1 is that you can move the view indexes outside the NSF. View indexes and Full Text Indexes are data derived from the "core" data, the documents in the database. This means they can always be rebuilt, if you have the data in the documents. Benefits from moving view index outside NSF: 1) A smaller database file size, to avoid reaching the 64GB limitation. 2) Faster database backup and restore. 3) Better performance by a

Watch out ...Intel Atom C processors will completetly die due to a flaw in processor
Fri, Feb 10th 2017 4:15p   Jesper Kiaer
If you have a NAS, a router (like Cisco), a firewall or a less capable PC with a Intel Atom C processor you might be heading for trouble. Due to a "clock flaw" in the Intel Atom C2000 processors they are "likely to fail at an accelerated rate after 18 months of operation" theregister.co.uk states Fail as in "completely die" and not boot again ...ever The specific SKUs are: C2308, C2338, C2350, C2358, C2508, C2518, C2530, C2538, C2550, C2558, C2718, C2730, C2738, C2750, and C2758 (stepp

Shrinking the 0.44 MB large IBM Domino favicon.ico to something useful
Wed, Jan 25th 2017 10:46p   Jesper Kiaer
Normally favicons are very tiny graphic files, just a few KB in size. But to my surprise I saw that the IBM Domino favicon was a whopping 449,4 KB in size . and took over 0.7 seconds to load The reason is that an ICO file can contain many images inside and thus be a multi-purpose graphics file. Which can be great at times.... but sending a half megabyte favicon is probably not what you want If you want to keep the IBM Domino favicon but only a 16x16 version, you can just download the norm

Synology Cloud Station - Important update 4.2.1-4374 ... much much improved performance
Wed, Nov 23rd 2016 9:14a   Jesper Kiaer
If you have been using Synology Cloud Station for instant backing up files from your PC/Mac to a Synology NAS, you have must likely been very disappointed with the performance. It has been REALLY slow and Synolgy NAS running at 99% in CPU usage. Well good news ...update your Synology NAS to the new Cloud Station version 4.2.1-4374 and you client software too. You will now experience performance has improved manyfold! ...and it is actually very useful now :-)
