IBM Lotus Domino Domain Monitoring (DDM)

  1. 1. Lotus Domino Server© 2006 IBM CorporationLast updated on 06/02/2013 by Austin ChangDominoDomainMonitoring (DDM)… for Administrators
  2. 2. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation2Agenda Introduction• DDM components Configuration• Design and implement a Server Collection Hierarchy• Enable and modify the default probes (events4.nsf)• Filters Probe Console Commands Sceanario• Proactively monitor IMAP, POP3, and SMTP• Detect and automatically fix a corrupt database using customcorrective action• …..
  3. 3. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation3Introduction DDM provides a simple, flexible andpowerful interface for Dominoadministrators to monitor the serversin their domain.– feature-oriented view of the domain status– Highly-configurable probes categorized byfeature areas– Probable cause and possible solutiondetermination– Automation of corrective actions– Default settings for easy out-of-the-box setup– Domino domain monitoring data aggregationwith collection hierarchies
  4. 4. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation4
  5. 5. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM CorporationDDM components Server Collection Hierarchy Monitoring Configuration -Events4.nsf– Probes• By Author• By Probe Server• By Type Filters5
  6. 6. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM CorporationDDM components Domino Domain Monitor –DDM.nsf– Event report documents• By Severity• By Date• By Type• By Server• By Assignment (including MyEvents view)6
  7. 7. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation7Server Collection Hierarchy - Configuration Available from the DDM section in events4.nsf Select a hierarchy from the dropdown box Area51, the collecting server, includes reports fromall of it’s children servers Children servers include only their own reports Create, delete or modify a hierarchy
  8. 8. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation8Server Collection Hierarchy - Configuration Or click on an individual server to modify the hierarchy– Pick the action– Select the servers– OK
  9. 9. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation9Server Collection Hierarchy - Configuration Define redundanthierarchies And nested hierarchies For example, Brooksand her childrenmight be messagingservers. If you onlywant to view reportsfor messagingservers, look atBrooks!!ddm.nsf
  10. 10. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation10DDM Probe Configuration DDM Probes / By Type Events4.nsf – New DDM section Types are the major functional areas
  11. 11. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation11DDM Probe Configuration Types expand into subtypes ...
  12. 12. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation12 Three flavors of probes (some probes have more than one):– Scheduled probes run according to a configurable schedule and defaultsare supplied– Embedded probes "instrument" the feature area and catchproblems/issues as they occur– Listening probes run when particular error codes are logged Probe configuration is quick and flexible:– Defaults probe configuration documents supplied for “out-of-box” values– “Special target servers” concept allows out-of-the-box probing withouthaving to specify named servers– Thresholds and result content are highly customizable• what the probe will actually check• probe sensitivity (when will they generate an event)• what severity event the probe will generate– Schedule is highly customizable for schedulable probes– Probes can be enabled/disabled per server/server groupDDM Probe Configuration
  13. 13. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation13DDM Probe Configuration Default probe configuration documents ship with Domino These documents are initially disabled
  14. 14. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation14DDM Probe Configuration Probes can be enabled/disabled from the view ... Default probe configuration documents ship with Domino 7 These documents are initially disabled
  15. 15. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation15 Event filters control what and how much informationis reported to ddm.nsf. Why?– Initial flood of events is striking, many of which have alwaysbeen there– Over time, administrators will want to “adjust the volume”,seeing more or less of certain events Enhanced and simple events can be filtered. Filters can target specific servers and filter outevents by event type/area and severity A default filter is supplied and enabled for simpleevents to reduce the initial “noise”.DDM Filters
  16. 16. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation16 Defined in events4.nsfDDM Filters Can filter specific event types by severity Can target specific servers Can filter both enhanced and simple events, or just simple events Can filter all event types by severity
  17. 17. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM CorporationProbe Console Commands View DDM probe schedule– >show sch –ddm• Shows a table of enabled probes and next scheduled runtime Probe17
  18. 18. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM CorporationProbe Console Commands View enabled probes– ‘tell event dumpprobes’– Shows a list of enabled DDM probes by note ID Run probes manually– ‘tell event runprobe ?????– Run a probe with note ID ????? immediately (designed tobe used with the dumpprobes command)18
  19. 19. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM Corporation19
  20. 20. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM CorporationMonitor Scenarios Common probes– Monitor for any errors encountered when compactingdatabase on Domino servers. (Database/DatabaseCompact)– Monitor the configured database(s) to ensure thatreplication occurs on the target servers within theconfigured time interval. (Replication/ScheduledReplication Checks)– Monitor which documents are not replicating in theDomino Directory. (Replication/Replication Errors)20
  21. 21. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM CorporationMonitor Scenarios (Continued) Common probes– Monitor if name lookups are taking too long.(Directory/Name Lookup Search Response)– Monitor CPU (55%: fatal) /Disk (30%: fatal) /Memory(98%) Utilization on your Domino Servers. (OperatingSystem/CPU;Disk;Memory)– Monitor the availability of all directories on the Dominoservers. (Directory/Directory Availability)– Monitor and fix a corrupt database by the correctiveaction code.21
  22. 22. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM CorporationMonitor Scenarios (Continued) Application probes– Monitor whether an agent (or Web agents) runs by AgentManager took– longer than 2 minutes to complete. (ApplicationCode/Long running agents)– Monitor database(s) for unused space, generate an eventwhen the percent of 30% unused space exceeds, thenautomatically compact the database(s) if an event isgenerated. (Database/Scheduled Checks)22
  23. 23. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM CorporationMonitor Scenarios (Continued) Application probes– Monitor the specific unused Notes DB with no access byany user for one month.– Monitor any ACL changes of the specific database.23
  24. 24. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM CorporationMonitor Scenarios (Continued) Messaging probes– Monitor mail routing to Domino and/or non-Domino mailsystems. (Messaging/Mail Reflector)– Monitors the amount of mail on a Domino server andchecks whether the number of mail messages in theMAIL.BOX file exceeds the number of mail messagesthat the router can process. (Messaging/Mail FlowStatistic Check)24
  25. 25. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM CorporationMonitor Scenarios (Continued) Messaging probes– Monitor whether your SMTP servers are listening on theappropriate ports. (Messaging/SMTP process state)– Monitor whether NRPC mail routing is occurring on theMail Servers. (Messaging/NRPC Routing Status)25
  26. 26. Domino Domain Monitoring for Administrators© 2006 IBM CorporationMonitor Scenarios (Continued) Administration Process probes– Monitor which AdminP requests are being generated, andwhether they are being processed.(Server/Administration)26
