  24. 24. Make Your Data Work for You 2 things before we start ...
  25. 25. Thank you! Francie Tanner Florian Vogler Daniel Reimann
  27. 27. Make Your Data Work for You Let‘s start with some numbers
  28. 28. IBM Notes 9.0.1 Feature Pack 10 Interim Fix 3 ~35.000 files (Notes 6/7 | 8/9 Basic used to have ~550) • 28.600 files in Notes Programframework in 2.700 subdirectories – 11.200 (largely undocumented) .properties files – 1.200 .jar files – 1.300 .html files • 600 files in Notes Dataworkspace in 250 subdirectories – 40 (largely undocumented) XML files – 40 (largely undocumented) .properties files • Which is – 35.000 files in 2.950 subdirectories – 11.280 largely undocumented files – ... and >30 NSFs/NTFs/NDKs – ... and the good old notes.ini file
  29. 29. IBM Notes 9.0.1 Feature Pack 10 Interim Fix 3 (cont.) Add over 80 preference/dialog boxes Each dialog has ~• 15 settings at average For a total of 1,200+ settings sprayed across address book (very few)• notes.ini (few)• and XML files (lots)• Plus any plugins, widgets, add-ons, etc. “you“ or the user may have added to the Notes client install

  31. 31. IBM Notes 9.0.1 Feature Pack 10 Interim Fix 3 (cont.) Workspace (nsf) Physical nsfs 1, 2, 3, … n
  32. 32. Make Your Data Work for You What makes the Notes Client START slow
  33. 33. IBM Notes release If you‘re not on at least 9.0.1 yet  9.0.1 is a significant improvement Software lifecycle of IBM Collaboration Solutions http://www– -01.ibm.com/software/support/collaboration/lifecycle/
  34. 34. IBM Notes release (cont.) How-to install IBM Notes 9.0.1 Feature Pack 10 1. Uncompress Installation files manually (e.g. using 7-zip) 2. Run the following command to install the Feature Pack: cmd.exe /c””c:TempPackage901FP10setup.exe" /s /v"/qn /lime “c:TempPackageLogs901FP10.log""
  35. 35. IBM Notes release (cont.) How-to install IBM Notes 9.0.1 Feature Pack 10 Interim Fix 3 1. Uncompress Installation files manually (e.g. using 7-zip) 2. Run the following command to install the Feature Pack: cmd.exe /c””c:TempPackage901FP10IF2ClientUpdate.exe" /s /v"/qn /lime “c:TempPackageLogs901FP10IF2.log""
  36. 36. Antivirus realtime scanning in Data directory ~55% of the entire data volume in the Data directory changes on a DAILY basis in most setups • 5 - 10% in Dataworkspace (up to 300 files) • DISABLE Antivirus scanning for at least *.ns* *.ndk *.xml *.properties *.jar in Data Directory. 55% 45% Data directory: File changes per day Once or more Less
  37. 37. What makes the Notes Client START slow (cont.) Client crashes/database fixups Especially bad for network based data directories clients• Outdated Hardware You need >• 2 GB memory if you want to use Notes AND something else Old fixed disks with fragmentation• Fun Exercise: Buy a Solid State Disk and make Notes start off of that ;• -) Tons of startup programs/scripts launching during the “boot storm” If the disk is unable to keep up, it• ‘s not Notes' fault
  38. 38. What makes the Notes Client START slow (cont.) Outdated Data directories Virtually• 100% of all NTFs (Laptops: 90%) can be removed by Cleaning up old Notes• 4+5+6/7 templates using• ini:SharedDataDirectory= (also with Single User install!) Operating System Windows• 8.1 boots ~20% faster than Windows 7 Windows• 10 ~15% faster than 8.1 – “Meltdown” and “Spectre” and upcoming “Spectre-NextGeneration”patches may have a negative performance impact
  39. 39. ODS of local databases ODS = On Disk Structure • ODS 16 = Notes 2 • ODS 17 = Notes 3 • ODS 20 = Notes 4 (or Templates) • ODS 41 = Notes 5 • ODS 43 = Notes 6 & 7 • ODS 48 = Notes 8 • ODS 51 = Notes 8.5 & 9 • ODS 52 = Notes 9.0.1 The difference between ODS 43 and 52 = up to 80% LESS FILE I/O This helps with ANY client AND server hardware
  40. 40. ODS of local databases (cont.) CAUTION: The ODS is not automatically updated when upgrading clients – ODS 51 requires Notes >= 8.5 and CREATE_R85_DATABASES=1 in notes.ini for NEW db's – ODS 52 requires Notes >= 9.0.1 and CREATE_R9_DATABASES=1 in notes.ini for NEW db's Good News for Notes > 8.5 – Use NSF_UpdateODS=1 with CREATE_R85/9_DATABASES=1 for a one-time upgrade of most local databases • NOTE: USE WITH EXTREME CARE IF YOUR DATA DIRECTORIES ARE ON A NETWORK DRIVE! • NOTE: End users can't access databases during compact OR databases will be ignored if in use Manually upgrade ODS of local databases/templates – Run the following command line: ncompact.exe -C -ODS -* -Client -UpdateIndexes
  41. 41. ODS of local databases (cont.) Impact examples Startup time of a Notes– 9.0.1 client with 3 ODS20 databases in Notes data = 45 seconds After ODS upgrade:• 17 seconds Reduced File I/O of your disks/SAN/NAS after ODS– 43 to 52 upgrade by 60% Removing– 70% of all old files in Data directories on SAN/NAS = 45% less managed storage (backup) AND much faster start The bad news: There is no way to tell what is “out there” – 3rd party tools or random inspections are highly recommended
  42. 42. IBM helps!
  43. 43. Make Your Data Work for You What makes the Notes Client START (super) fast
  44. 44. Eclipse Workspace improvement • Every IBM Notes Client start in a virtual environment (citrix, vmware, etc.) is a first (setup) start and takes at least 23 sec on average • ~65% - 70% of time during first starts is used to build the workspace folder (at least 15 sec) • A typical new workspace folder (IBM Notes 9.0.1 FP10 IF2) consists of – >500 files – >200 folders – >85 MB (including 64MB *xpdplat_.jvm_G11 file  NotesShareClasses improvement) Building/Updating the workspace folder causes lots of file I/O
  45. 45. Eclipse Workspace improvement (cont.) Accelerate the IBM Notes Client start to be >65% faster (with less file I/O) 1. With a non-admin user (Windows + IBM Notes) run an initial setup of IBM Notes 2. Start IBM Notes and wait for 2-3minutes 3. Exit IBM Notes 4. Start IBM Notes again and wait for 2-3minutes 5. Exit IBM Notes 6. Create the following folder  %ProgramData%IBMNotesDataCommon 7. Copy the workspace folder from %LocalAppData%IBMNotesData to %ProgramData%IBMNotesDataCommon
  46. 46. Eclipse Workspace improvement (cont.) Delete the following files & folders in8. %ProgramData%IBMNotesDataCommonworkspace UDMa. Logsb.  all but .prov2install .metadatac. .pluginscom.ibm.collaboration.* .metadatad. .pluginscom.ibm.rcp.personality.framework .metadatae. .pluginscom.ibm.rcp.security.auth .metadataf. .pluginscom.ibm.rcp.managedsettings
  47. 47. Make Your Data Work for You Live
  48. 48. Make Your Data Work for You What makes the Notes Client PERFORM slow
  49. 49. What makes the Notes Client PERFORM slow Again • ODS of local databases • Hardware Notes.ini • EXTMGR_ADDINS = (not just) local virus scanners • Disable Notes “plugins“ like virus scanners etc. – They increase Network traffic by up to 200 – 250%! Data directory on the network vs. fixed disk • Disk performance is the #1 bottleneck – think SSD vs. normal HDD ; 7.200rpm vs. 5.400rpm ; network drive vs. local fixed disk
  50. 50. Port settings Port settings are included in the notes.ini • Type / Active / Encryption / Compression / Timeout Legacy • LAN0 / COMx / DisabledPorts  should be removed Good idea • Use TCPIP according to the client type • PORTS = TCPIP • TCPIP = TCP,0,15,0,,12320,  Desktops • TCPIP = TCP,0,15,0,,45088,  Laptops • TCPIP = TCP,0,15,0,,12288,  Citrix / VDI • Attention: Hardware compression (e. g. Riverbed) Don‘t forget the Domino servers!
  51. 51. Port settings (cont.) Legacy/Default port encryption for Notes/Domino RC• 4 128Bit (Rivest Cipher 4) Best practice settings for port encryption on Domino server >= 9.0.1 Fix Pack 7 AES• -GCM 128Bit (Advanced Encryption Standard) notes.ini• PORT_ENC_ADV=– 84 See the following Technote for details and read before you use the parameter: http://www• -01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21990283
  52. 52. What makes the Notes Client PERFORM slow (cont.) Install types: Basic vs. Standard Basic client starts up fast, Standard client, well– … not so fast IBM Roaming Users Try replicating– 80MB each time you logon to Notes before use! Connection documents Pointing to outdated server names or IP addresses– Low priority connection documents, which can cause connectivity failures– Location documents IP addresses for mailserver–  breaks Policies Outdated mail and home server information– Outdated mail file path– Catalog server (think db links, doc links, new bookmarks)–
  53. 53. Why is the Catalog important? Ever wondered what exactly happens when you click on db links / doc links / view links 1. Notes checks whether you already have a workspace icon pointing to the replica ID in the link. If yes, the top most icon on the stack decides on which server the db will open 2. If there's no icon on the workspace, Notes asks the catalog server in your currently selected location document where the db is to be found. So, make sure your catalog is up to date! No catalog server? Notes will ask your mail server! 3. Are you replicating your catalog.nsf across all servers? Bad news: If 2.) applies, Notes will open the database on the server it finds first in the catalog – which is sorted alphabetically. In global infrastructures that might be a server far far away Make sure to use an appropriate catalog server in your location documents!
  54. 54. Make Your Data Work for You PERFORMANCE Tips and Tricks
  55. 55. Performance Measuring with Client Clocking NOTE: All of this should only be done on “ONE” client – slows down client, creates huge log files! Use the following to see and measure client performance – CLIENT_CLOCK=1 – CONSOLE_LOG_ENABLED=1 – Debug_Outfile=c:debug.txt – Debug_Console=1 – DEBUG_TCP_ALL=1 (use only if needed) Fileserver or local disk Performance Debugging is virtually impossible – If on >= 8.5 try adding DEBUGGINGWCTENABLED=16386 in Notes
  56. 56. Performance Measuring with Client Clocking (cont.) Client_Clock=1 leads to a debug file of the following format:
  57. 57. Performance Measuring with Client Clocking (cont.) OpenNTF – NRPC Parser Link: http://www.openntf.org/internal/home.nsf/project.xsp?action=openDocument&name= Notes%20RPC%20Parser Last Update: v1.0.14 – Nov 10, 2016 Developed by: Jamie Magee, MartinScott Consulting LLC, US Andrew Magerman, Magerman Collaborative Software GmbH, Switzerland
  58. 58. Performance Measuring with Client Clocking (cont.) OpenNTF – NRPC Parser
  59. 59. Performance Tuning – Understanding cache.ndk We've all been “advised to”/guilty of deleting the cache.ndk in an effort to cure Notes performance problems/symptoms – Some companies even delete cache.ndk on a scheduled basis HOWEVER, let us explain the impact of that on Notes performance ... – Increases traffic between client and server by 4,000% (forty times more traffic, yes) (10,000+% if the data directory is on a network drive) – The more databases end users use, the worse it gets – There is always a root cause – deleting cache.ndk only fixes symptoms – Let's look at some detailed traffic analysis for just ONE application (the mail file) of ONE user ...
  60. 60. Performance Tuning – Understanding cache.ndk (cont.) 100 users = 150 MB vs. 3,7 MB 1000 users = 1.5 GB vs. 37 MB Excluding Fileservers! After deleting cache.ndk Keeping / NOT deleting cache.ndk
