Performance Test - Homework for readers of this blog

By Andrew Pollack on 08/21/2013 at 04:17 PM EDT

In Domino Designer Preferences, check out the settings under "Source Control". This is an important feature, but not one that everyone uses.

If you do not use source control, try turning off the two options:

"Enable automatic export of the design elements (from NSF to disk) on modification"
"Enable automatic import of the design elements (from disk to NSF) on modification"

I'm not sure if you'll see a performance gain or not. I'm trying it for another reason. I've found Domino Designer 9 to be crashtastic when I'm doing a lot of edit/test/debug cycles with some agents. When it's crashed and I've restarted, I've had it come back with hours old versions of my agent code. I'm hoping that turning this off will reduce the chance of that happening.

I use source control and still turn off these options. It makes for much faster
compile times, and you can manually sync with the on disk project when you want
to do a commit to whatever source control system you're using.

Either way in 9.0 I've found designer to be much more stable.

Agree with Matt. I have them turned off too and use manual sync.

Absolutely turn these off whether you use source control or not. I have had
crashes and old code come back to haunt me when these were enabled, and fingers
crossed that hasn't happened since I tweaked these settings.

(Still lots of crashes when copying and pasting design elements, but at least
nothing is *lost*)

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
