News from the Lab - System Database Optimization - So easy with DDO!

We often see customers with bloated System databases that never seem to get compacted/maintained (you know the ones.... log.nsf, etc) because.....well it's just a hassle for many admins to shut down and manually do it. As a result, because these databases are missing out on some much needed maintenance, can get pretty huge and often respond sluggishly when they do need to be opened and with many GB of disk space trapped inside are just wasting disk space too, it all adds up costing time and money. Our new Domino Database Optimizer makes it so easy to apply best practice maintenance, get these back to a manageable size and give Domino a nice scheduled "Health Restart".

DDO makes this as simple as ticking a few boxes, set and forget, and If this is scheduled once a week the difference it makes to Domino is quite amazing.

During this phase of scheduled maintenance DDO integrates with Domino's own maintenance processes by using Compact Replication on the System Databases (and other databases you might want to add) with the Domino server up and running and therefore minimizing down-time, a -Restart is then initiated to complete the rename process.

We see below the system databases are compacted and upon restart the rename process is completed:
