  • Domino is not just a product, its an entire Ecosystem – 3 rd parties and IBM products – some listed here We are working very closely with our ISVs with the 7.0 beta code to make sure their products are ready when 7.0 ships or soon thereafter. This is critical to our success - customers need to be able to plan their migrations to 7.0 in the knowledge that all the 3 rd party solutions they depend on will also be ready. So far we are hearing that 7.0 just runs with most of these solutions with no changes. However many other vendors (especially Backup suppliers) and are planning to exploit DB2 integration.

    17. 17. What’s New in Domino 7.0 Administration?
    18. 18. What’s new in Domino 7.0 Administration highlights <ul><li>NEW !! Activity Trends </li></ul><ul><li>Domino Domain Monitoring (DDM) </li></ul><ul><li>Smart Upgrade Improvements </li></ul><ul><li>Improved Policy Based Management </li></ul><ul><li>Linux/Mozilla Web Admin Client </li></ul><ul><li>Improved Email Management </li></ul>
    19. 19. Why DDM in Domino 7.0? <ul><li>2003 survey results on administrative priorities </li></ul>
    20. 20. Why Domino Domain Monitoring (DDM)? <ul><li>In Jan 2003 survey, Domino Administrators said: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Domino 6.x provided new tools that reduce TCO </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many usability and &quot;polish&quot; improvements </li></ul></ul><ul><li>However... </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Monitoring/troubleshooting servers takes too much time. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many problems across servers reported in many places. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Correlation/analysis of lots of diverse data for complex problems is difficult. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Need root cause analysis and corrective action context. </li></ul></ul>
    21. 21. DDM Goals <ul><li>At the highest level, reduce TCO by providing a means to quickly monitor and determine the health of an entire domain at a single UI location and quickly resolve problems -- How? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Automate problem determination/analysis by feature (replication, messaging, directory, security, etc.) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rollup, prioritize, and resolve problems across servers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hide details until they are needed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Make DDM checks and reporting configurable and flexible </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Be consistent with IBM Autonomic Computing (AC) vision </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The DDM Five C’s – Check, Collect, Consolidate, Correlate, Correct </li></ul></ul>
    22. 22. 7 Key Points to Take Home <ul><li>DDM is aimed at TCO reduction and all administrators </li></ul><ul><li>One-stop shopping for monitoring and problem resolution </li></ul><ul><li>Distills/correlates a huge amount of otherwise indigestible data </li></ul><ul><li>Highly usable interface allows systematic approach to server issues </li></ul><ul><li>Configurability and flexibility accommodates diverse enterprises </li></ul><ul><li>More efficient monitoring and problem resolution leads to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Server stability and uptime </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Focus on business needs, not the mechanics of administration </li></ul></ul><ul><li>DDM should become primary monitoring interface, but it’s optional! </li></ul><ul><li>DDM architecture facilitates future extensibility and programmability </li></ul>
    23. 23. Activity Trends Formerly available with Tivoli Analyzer <ul><li>A capacity planning and resource/load balancing tool for Domino domains </li></ul><ul><li>Gathers and analyzes Domino activity data </li></ul><ul><li>Resource balance many Domino servers by moving databases across servers </li></ul><ul><li>Provides automated change management with full administration-cycle support </li></ul>
    24. 24. Activity Trends -- Why Load Balance? <ul><li>Domino response varies with load </li></ul><ul><li>At high utilization, response is highly variable </li></ul><ul><li>Want stable and predictable utilization </li></ul><ul><li>Result: improved availability, better response times, and decreased costs </li></ul>
    25. 25. Activity Trends -- Capabilities <ul><li>Balances resources in several dimensions and increases predictability of resource consumption </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Over 25 transactions (CPU), space, network, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Manages/minimizes daily fluctuations in server load </li></ul><ul><li>Generates solutions that are stable over long periods </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Solution is usually stable for 12 months or more </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Implements solution by moving databases </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Domino Change Manager automates approval process and migration of databases between servers </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Provides server decommissioning capability </li></ul><ul><li>Allows “what-if” scenarios with ghost servers </li></ul>
    26. 26. Getting the Data <ul><li>Activity Logging </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Server task writes performance data (binary) to the server log </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Activity data stream written to the standard server log (log.nsf) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Activity Trends Collector </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Processes performance data once a day </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Correlates with other data from different sources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Performs historical analysis to predict future size and consumption rates for resources and “trends” the data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data is written to Activity Database for use by Activity Trends in the Domino Administrator client </li></ul></ul>
    27. 27. Activity Trends Load Balancing
    28. 28. Smart Upgrade Improvements in 7.0 <ul><li>Smart Upgrade tracking </li></ul><ul><li>Governor - Limit the number of Smart Upgrades per hour (also in 6.5.4) </li></ul><ul><li>Smart Upgrade server cluster failover to another server </li></ul><ul><li>Smart Upgrade failover from shared drive path kit to Attachment kit. </li></ul><ul><li>Smart Upgrade fields added to the desktop policy settings document. </li></ul>
    29. 29. IBM Lotus Notes Smart Upgrade <ul><li>IBM Lotus Notes Smart Upgrade notifies users to update their Notes 6 and more recent clients to later releases. </li></ul><ul><li>Lotus Notes Smart Upgrade uses policy and settings documents to help manage updates. </li></ul><ul><li>The Smart Upgrade Kits are available in global English only. In a non-English environment, the Notes Client Web Kit can be substituted for the Smart Upgrade Kit. </li></ul>
    30. 30. To use Lotus Notes Smart Upgrade <ul><li>Follow this procedure: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Create a database using the Smart Upgrade Kits template (SMUPGRADE.NTF) to host Notes client update kits. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Update the Configurations Settings document in the Domino Directory with a link to the Lotus Notes Smart Upgrade database. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Download an update kit, also known as an incremental installer, from the Lotus Developer Domain Web site (http://www.lotus.com/ldd/smartupgrade). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create a Kit document in the Lotus Notes Smart Upgrade database and attach a Notes client kit or All Client kit to the Kit document, or designate a shared network drive in the Kit document. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create or modify a desktop policy settings document where you specify the updated release to deploy and the date on which the grace period for updating a Notes client ends. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create or modify a master policy to assign users or groups to the desktop policy settings document. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Depending on the master policy created, edit Person documents to assign users to the master policy and/or set the Lotus Notes Smart Upgrade desktop policy settings document for one or more groups. </li></ul></ul>

    42. 43. Tune E-Mail for Peak Performance 6 Steps you can take to improve performance, conserve system resources and help users get their work done faster. Taken from Lotus Advisor December 2005 issue Written by David Yavin and Andrew Wolff, SYS Analytics
    43. 44. Who are the culprits? <ul><li>Not usually the large message sent to another person. </li></ul><ul><li>Usually many mid-sized messages sent to distribution lists. </li></ul><ul><li>Implementing a maximum size doesn’t fix this problem. </li></ul><ul><li>Messages between 500K-5M typically are 5% of the messages, yet they consume 60-70 % of the resources. </li></ul><ul><li>Compounded with “Reply to All” </li></ul><ul><li>Suggestion: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Change the default to Reply w/o Attachment. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Remove Reply w/ Attachment. </li></ul></ul>
    44. 45. Address habitual volume e-mailers <ul><li>Less than 1% cause more than 20% of resource consumption. </li></ul><ul><li>Two types: habitual mass mailers and large attachment senders </li></ul><ul><li>Even small attachments sent to large distributions cause issues. </li></ul><ul><li>Mail agents often send to a distribution list, but the recipients create an agent to auto-delete those messages. </li></ul><ul><li>Suggestion: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>See if large regular distributions can be a Notes application. Then the sender only sends a doclink/hyperlink. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>See if large attachments can be placed an a separate db and distributed similar to above. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use a performance management tool to identify these users. </li></ul></ul>
    45. 46. Make best use of the platform <ul><li>Perhaps regular conversations between two people should use IM instead of email. </li></ul><ul><li>Email archiving often isn’t used. </li></ul><ul><li>Suggestion: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use IM for conversations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use archiving </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Strip attachments </li></ul></ul>
    46. 47. Place servers where there’s need <ul><li>This cuts down on WAN traffic. </li></ul><ul><li>Hub and spoke vs centralized </li></ul><ul><li>Suggestion: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use IM and email analysis tools to determine best location. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Way the costs between an additional server and WAN/performance. </li></ul></ul>
    47. 48. Prune large mailboxes <ul><li>Large mailboxes cause issues: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Longer to back up </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Longer to index </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Corruption more easily </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Setting quotas may just “waste” users time managing their mail instead of performing their job. </li></ul><ul><li>Suggestion: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Teach the value of deletion. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use network drives for personal file stores. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Remove or archive “dead accounts”. </li></ul></ul>
    48. 49. Monitor for inappropriate personal use <ul><li>“ Although ensuring employee productivity isn’t an admin’s problem, ensuring the infrastructure is being used appropriately is.” </li></ul><ul><li>There are many regulations about this. </li></ul><ul><li>Suggestion: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Monitor email and IM </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Have policies regarding how to deal with offending parties. </li></ul></ul>
    49. 50. Optimize Internet Settings <ul><li>Internet domains often are a security risk. </li></ul><ul><li>Internet mail also overloads the SMTP gateway. </li></ul><ul><li>Suggestion: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Monitor mail sent to internet and discuss alternatives with the sender. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Beware of Out-Of-Office cyclical agents. </li></ul></ul>
