Some new tools I'm trying

By Andrew Pollack on 02/26/2009 at 06:06 PM EST

I'm trying out a couple of tools for the Domino product line. In particularly I'm finally getting around to testing DEFRAG.NSF -- I'll let you know how that goes, I'm hopeful but skeptical. I'm also going to be installing and working with Ytria's development tools.

In the interest of full disclosure, both vendors have made those available to me to try out, and if I like them I'll say so here on the blog site. If I don't like them, I probably won't say anything about them unless they're truly terrible --which I doubt.

If I end up using them, I'll probably add a link to the vendor sites on the front page here. If anyone thinks that crosses an ethical line, please email me.

I'll be curious to read your observations about the defrag tool. I've been
back and forth with my SAN group for years regarding fragmentation. I can't
just go a buy/implement a defrag tool myself, but if DEFRAG.NSF does what it
says, I may have a means to do an end run around them.

As for Ytria's tools - I use signEZ and agentEZ from them and they're saving me
a great deal of time and effort.

From the testing I did the Defrag.nsf tool works as advertised. We run on a
SAN and the defrag makes a difference in disk I/O from an OS perspective

I'm currently testing defag.nsf so far the performance difference has been very
very good. but its very slow, and don't enable it for the first time during
working hours.

Ahh the proverbial question of defragging or not. I vote to defrag (at least

I've been using Ytria's ScanEZ, ViewEZ, and ActionBarEZ for years. They've
saved us countless hours (okay, maybe the count is hundreds or thousands), and
especially help us make views and forms consistent across an application.

The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't. VirtualBox was barely starting, and no matter how many features I turned off, it could ......
