Is anyone else running Lotus Notes? I'm getting scads of complaints that when running Notes and OVSD java clients simultaneously their system gives a "low on resources" message in minutes.
On top of that, the heat is getting turned up about general performance issues across the board. We do 500-800 service calls a day, have around 10k clients across North America, 300 or so IT staff, lots of service pages users. We run that against 2 really big servers but performance is pitifull. Service Pages users are running 5 - 15 minute waits to display views. Normal users take a 2+ minutes to select from person table. Some users are complaining about 2+ minute waits on Save.
Do I just not have enough horsepower thrown at this thing or is everyone feeling this pain?
Do you really have 10000 SD clients out there? What is your definition of big servers? Can you let me know what specs you have?
We have currently 5.1SP1 in SP0 there was a bug which gave us tremendous performance problems.
We have around 250-300 concurrent users on the system and running 4 Application servers(1-2 CPU's and around 2GB memory), most of them running two object servers. The SQL Server is a shared one. With 12 CPU's and 64GB memory.
Overall the performance is average, which I think is simply programming overhead in Java. Displaying 10000 calls is not a problem, but opening an Item takes very long.
I have worked on a number of instals with Notes as the email clients and some that migrated to Outlook without these type of issues. What is the standard spec of the client systems?
Generally performance issues for the OVSD client / server can be due to - many scheduled tasks loading - not utilising OVSD java memory allocation - client distance from the application servers - using lots of templates / views that do not have query restrictions set
This list isn't exhastive.
For service pages you can use dedicated application server so it only processes SP requests. This would help.
You can also run multiple instances of OVSD on a physical server as long as you have enough resources and have these joined to the pool of active application servers.
For service pages the views are very slow if you add any fields to the views and dont created a matching WEB API application to go with it, so if you have tweaked the service pages views you may need to check this.
