Recurrent audit of all the bases of an Infrastructure
Using Audit Station allows you to schedule regular audits of your entire Domino Notes infrastructure, enabling you to gain efficiencies and ensure good management of the databases hosted on your servers. Conducting regular monitoring is easy with our solution. The examples of use cases below, will allow you to get a good idea of its application and their contexts.
Global application audit
A large French industrial company with production plants in more than 100 countries chooses to audit its installed application base across 260 + Domino servers. Audit Station Satellite
databases are set up on Hub servers in geographical zones (US, Africa, France, Europe, South America …) and audits are launched. After 3 weeks, the 115,000 Notes databases are audited and results are synchronized to 2 Application Dashboard databases (one for the US and one covering the rest of the world).
Complexity analysis for the application base
A Swiss insurance company wants to determine the application complexity of their Notes databases in order to migrate to a standard package. Databases on the different application servers are audited and segmented. Inactive databases or system databases used for the Domino server to run properly are discarded. On the remaining databases, grouping by Template type or by Template resemblance allows to highlight about twenty different database types. A deeper analysis of these Templates will help determine their compatibility with the target package and assess the number of days needed for redevelopment.
Decommissioning Domino servers
A French food company wants to reduce the number of its Domino servers by removing inactive databases, including QuickR spaces. The AS
audit can identify QuickR spaces and group all the Notes databases of a QuickR space (Main.nsf + PageLibrary_XXX.nsf). Information related to activity or to the occupied disk space are displayed by QuickR (functional vision) and no longer by single NSF database. Inactive QuickR spaces are exported as Read-Only archive files (XML + HTML) via the Notes Extractor
Application migration scenario
A Japanese medical company wants to analyze scenarios to migrate their Notes application base to another technology (e.g. SharePoint). The application database audit is performed on all applications servers. Databases are categorized according to their types (Mail, Document, Forum, Team Room or other application databases). The content of document-oriented Notes databases (Mail, Library, Team Room, Forum, etc.) can be transferred to standard SharePoint sites (List). Analyzing the involved volumes allows to scale the architecture of SharePoint servers that should receive data. Analyzing application databases allows to determine the migration effort (number of man-days) necessary for redeveloping the application in SharePoint. The Notes applications which are too complex to be hosted in a SharePoint site are identified.
