Mac has asked that if we're planning to submit a session in the BP track that we post the idea up in IdeaJam to see what kind of support its got. I want to do a Performance session in the BP track this year. I usually do security, admin, mail routing, and linux -- and I'll probably post those as well -- but this year I want to do "Performance" in a way that makes sense in the real world.
You see, real world Domino performance issues aren't all about the simple stuff like memory and number of disks. There's vicious cycle of critical choices you make in combination that makes the difference. It's the application design that exacerbates the hardware choices and operating system configuration. I've had clients tell me they're seeing up a 1/4 the servers needed to support the same users and applications after taking a handful of recommendations in combination.
I want to do a session that talks about how to spot the combination of small, inexpensive changes you can make to really see dramatic improvements. If you think you'd want to go to a session like that, "vote yes" on the idea linked below.
