An IBM Redbooks publication

Other Language Versions

Note: Other language versions may not be as current as the English edition.


This document describes performance considerations when developing applications for Domino R5.0 or R4.6.
We discuss the following issues in detail:

- How to consider performance and capacity when designing and developing a Domino application
- How to analyze a Domino application that does not meet its performance and capacity goals

While both platform setup (Domino server and operating system) and application architecture need to be considered when looking at performance and capacity, this book focus on the application perspective.

This IBM Redbooks publication was written for Domino designers and programmers, customers, IBM Business Partners, and members of the IBM and Lotus community who need a good technical understanding of how to develop applications that scale and perform using Lotus Domino R5.0 and R4.6.
