By the time I installed Quickr 8.1,
there were a myriad of configuration places, settings, and knobs and dials
on the Quickr server. We have notes.ini, qpconfig.xml, the admin screens,
server documents, web configuration documents - let's just say it's enough
to make your head spin! The good news is that if you're running a single
server for standard Quickr activities, using Domino LDAP, there really
isn't much to change. But if you have a busy server...
While there isn't room here for a complete
server health checklist, I do have a recommendation on the use of notes.ini.
This configuration file, as you know, has been with Notes since the days
of yore. While it goes largely unmodified in the field, there are actually
quite a few Quickr settings in there, and some of them can be addressed
in different and better ways. I'm referring specifically to the "ServerTasksAtX"
lines. These lines are designed to kick off a specific process or processes
at a specific time in the early morning.
Here's my tip - get rid of the qptool
tasks that are run this way! Some you don't need, while some are overlapping
each other and could be run at a better time. For instance, in Quickr 8.1
the server install added a line (look below the normal location) "ServerTasksAt4=qptool
refresh -a,qptool report -policyexecute,qptool register -pts". That's
three qptool commands - meaning three Java programs - run simultaneously
at 4 AM. Ouch, kill that line!
What to do with these? A much better
option resides in the Domino Directory, names.nsf, with Program documents.
You can replace all of the qptool notes.ini settings with Program documents
with the following benefits:
1. You control the timing. If you want
to run a task at 3:12 in the morning, you can
2. Program documents can be enabled
3. You can decide to run qptool tasks
more or less frequently than daily, as your needs dictate
Next time, I'll tell you which other
notes.ini settings and server tasks you can safely (and should!) get rid
of to speed up the Quickr server. For now - schedule away, and trim down
that notes.ini file!
