Amazon Workplaces – great for temporary machines
Sun, Oct 16th 2016 3:18p   Sean Cull
Juts a quick post to mention Amazon workspaces. We have been migrating 20 years of Notes data to a new XPages application and needed to PDF over 200k documents in the process. To do this we needed to run several Notes clients continuously for several weeks to create the PDFs. We started by using Azure VMs and Windows Server 2008 images but these were expensive and seemed to lack grunt. We then started to use Amazon Workspaces and these were more affordable and seemed to run better. We are usin

We moved an application from an 853 server to a 9.01 server and users reported that multiple attachments were being uploaded into XPages the attachment control. It seems to be related to this bug in 9.01 LO82247: PARTIAL REFRESH OF A DIFFERENT PORTION OF AN XPAGE CAUSES THE CONTENT OF A FILE UPLOAD CONTROL TO DUPLICATE. Which has been closed with no resolution to be fixed in a future release. So I have had to Open a ticket here Identify the issue Remove partial refreshes which has a ne

ICONUK and the State of Domino Web Development

Caution Long Post, I’m stuck on a train. The best User Group yet. I am just back from a very impressive ICONUK. I can honestly say that it was the best LUG that I have been to. The best part for me was the informal discussions within the community. It is a time of change and the community discussions were real, interesting and honest. I came away with more questions than answers but my new questions are better informed and more useful than the set I arrived with. Why I went In all honesty

The moral of the story – do some monitoring
Tue, Aug 16th 2016 7:42a   Sean Cull
We have been battling with one of 6 Domino XPage servers that is running a consistently higher load average than the other servers. The performance was OK from a customer point of view but differences in systems are always a worry. We tried everything I could think of – probably spending 2 – 3 days on this overall.  We checked the XPage application, we checked Domino configuration, we even moved it to a different host server and we even rebuilt it from a (new) standard image. Any

Auditing for IBM Notes mail rules sending emails externally
Fri, Mar 11th 2016 8:14a   Sean Cull
A customer asked us to help with a tool to audit for mail rules that were forwarding emails externally. I had a look around and found the very good openNTF Mail Rules Analyser application from Thomas Hampel Having looked at it we felt that it was great starting point but we wanted something a bit different that could be used by an auditor without admin access and which showed the history of mail rules. We modified the application and are hoping to feed back some or all of the changes into the

URGENT : Chrome Bug 570622 affecting our users – is it affecting yours ?
Mon, Feb 1st 2016 2:51p   Sean Cull
The bug reported by David Leedy appears to be affecting our users significantly. Are your users reporting screen freezes in XPage applications in Chrome ? If so please “star” this bug ( top left corner ) to raise its profile. Even if you are worried that it might affect your users then please “star” this bug. It has been fixed but it is unclear when it will hit production without enough priority. There are no symptoms exhibited on the console or in domlog.nsf. Also

Advice required for a blog article – which Domino metrics would you monitor ?
Mon, Jan 25th 2016 8:39a   Sean Cull
I am making good progress with a series of articles on using Nagios style server monitoring for Domino. One of the options that I have is to use a custom Nagios plugin to pull back values from the following list of “show Stats” metrics on Domino. Which 5 ( of the 1103 !) statistics would you monitor and at what thresholds ? The servers in question are typically Linux Domino web servers and are not used for Notes clients or mail. I have left some values in from my dev server to give

Thu, Jan 7th 2016 6:39a   Sean Cull
I have been looking at options to automate the monitoring of our servers. If you are looking for lots of Domino functionality there is a great system called Vital Signs but I was also interested in something based on the Open Source Nagios platform I opted to try the Opsview Atom offering ( free for up to 25 servers ) which has a very simple but effective dashboard. It has taken me a couple of days as it was new to me ( and the documentation is not great ) but I am very pleased with where I

VMWare ESXi Development Server on a Lenovo T420
Mon, Jan 4th 2016 5:49p   Sean Cull
For some time I have been interested in setting up a development VMWare ESXi server on a laptop to help with testing etc. The problem in the past has been that the ESXi install only comes with drivers for high end network cards and the process of adding the required drivers is chewy As of ESXi 5.5 update 3 and ESXi 6 the drivers for the Intel 82579LM network card have been included in the core product  so as long as your laptop has > 4GB installed ( 4GB is not enough as it registers as 3.
