    Explore the methodologies and approaches to assist in providing optimal performance of Lotus Domino for iSeries! This IBM Redbooks publication targets technical professionals who are responsible for, or must advise on, the installation and administration of Lotus Domino servers on IBM eServer iSeries servers. It can also be used by performance specialists to gain knowledge on how to collect, measure, analyze, and extrapolate performance data from Domino servers. This book offers you the ability to translate these methodologies into your own situation and come up with specific performance analysis strategies and a set of tuning parameters for the best possible performance.

    This book shows a detailed approach for:

    - Estimating an appropriate configuration for a new iSeries server to run Domino

    - Measuring Domino application performance

    - Tuning Domino servers and OS/400 resources for optimal use

    - Understanding the impact of many configuration settings
