Do you monitor your Connections environment?
Tue, Sep 23rd 2014 8:11a   Sharon Bellamy
After being to a few user groups lately and seeing all the great monitoring tools for Domino I am interested in what people use to monitor connections. The WebSphere piece of connections can put a lot of people off and I am wondering if something was available would you use it? If you do monitor, what do you use If something was available with a *dashboard* would you use it? What features would you like in a monitoring app Would you be interested in something bundled in Nagios etc I have creat [read] Keywords: connections domino websphere

mod_deflate compressing your Connections pages before they hit the client
Mon, Nov 25th 2013 8:15a   Sharon Bellamy
I have also posted this over on the Cube Soft Blog The Apache v2 module mod_deflate is extremely handy if you are serving IBM Connections up to remote locations with little bandwidth. Some of the Connections pages have large css or java script files that are required to function correctly but for countries that have poor connection to the remote server this causes slow page load times and sometimes timeouts. So mod_deflate to the rescue .. open your httpd.conf file and ensure that the mod_defla [read] Keywords: connections ibm bug css java server

If you have migrated or moved an IBM Connections instance from 3.0.1 > 4.x (either 4.0 or 4.5) or moved data between 4.x servers you may have noticed a weird issue with searching, especially around communities.
