Hi All, looking for some advise on monitoring Domino mail servers using a 3rd party product.
Just for some background info, I have quite limited experience with Domino, I normally support Exchange Server which I have more experience with but the person who normally supports Domino is not available so I have been picking up support as best as I can.
The client environment consists of 4 Mail Servers and 1 Traveler server, the 4 mail servers are clustered.
We are monitoring the clients environment using a 3rd party enterprise level product, so other services and server operating system's etc are all being monitored with no issues.
A Domino MIB has been provided to the Monitoring team who have imported it into the monitoring product so they are able to see all of the Monitors that can be enabled, all I need to do is respond with them advising on what I want enabled and what I want the thresholds to be.
I can confirm we are able to query the server via SNMP traps which have successfully pulled back information on certain counters as a test so connectivity seems fine from the Monitoring probe to the Domino servers.
My biggest problem is I have no idea which monitors I would like to have enabled, they have provided me with a list of 800 monitors available, a few example monitors if it helps are;
Again this is a very small snippet of monitors I can choose to select, I just pasted them in as an example.
Is anyone aware of any articles that can specify critical Monitors you would want to enable and also a baseline threshold?
A similar article for Exchange 2013 is - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn904093(v=exchg.150).aspx
This article helped me when i wanted to determine what to tweak and enable when the Exchange monitoring deployment was udnerway for another client.
Any help would be appreciated on this, even if some of you long time Domino Admins can confirm that nothing does exist, at least then I can explain to management so I dont go on any wild goose chases.
Thanks in advance
