Monitoring Critical Lotus Domino System Components

New white paper explains how GSX Change Monitoring module helps identify the impact of changes on Domino service delivery

GSXSolutions [www.gsx.com], a provider of proactive, consolidated monitoring and reporting of enterprise collaboration environments, including MicrosoftExchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) and LotusNotes, today announced publication of a major white paper detailing the importance of monitoring critical Lotus Domino system components and how the GSX Change Monitoring module helps identify the impact of changes on service delivery.

The new study details how the control of changes to Lotus Domino messaging environments is critical to the security, quality, and costs of service delivery.

"The Change Monitoring module for Domino is a natural extension of GSX Monitorcapabilities"said Antoine Leboyer, CEO of GSX. "It goesbeyond monitoring the availability and performance of critical system components to the monitoringofconfiguration items that impact service delivery."

Gartner statesthat while basic system monitoring tools can reduce downtime by 10 percent, IT Managers must also be able to rapidlyidentify the impact of approved changes on service delivery.GSX found that these customerchange monitoring requirements vary by sector. The banking and pharmaceutical industries are subject to stringent regulatory requirementsand require rapid configuration updates. Other lessregulated industries still need to know immediately if a change in one region could impact service delivery in others.

The GSX Change Monitoring module for Domino targets changes in the Notes.ini file to see what server tasks have been added or removed, and key configuration items in the NAB (Name and Address book):

  • Server Documents
  • Server Configuration Documents
  • Program Documents
  • Policies
  • Web Configuration Documents
  • Groups
  • Connection Documents
  • Domain Documents

By ensuring that key configuration and access controls settings are automatically monitored and reported, IT Managers can successfully control their Domino messaging and collaboration environments.
