Lotus Domino Server Processes and Network Ports (Linux)

Lotus Domino Server Processes and Network Ports (Linux)

This template assesses the overall performance of a Lotus Domino Server on Linux processes by using the SNMP protocol.

Prerequisites: SNMP enabled on the operating system and permissions to monitor the following processes: nadminp, namgr, ncalconn, nevent, nimap, nldap, npop3, nreplica, nrouter, nrouter, nserver, nsmtp, nupdate.

Credentials: None. (The SNMP public string assigned to the node is used.)

Monitored Components

Some components may not have preset warning or critical threshold values. You can add your own threshold limits as necessary. For more information, see http://knowledgebase.solarwinds.com/kb/questions/2415.

Process: Administrative Process

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage of the Lotus Domino Administrative process, which performs many of the tedious and multi-step maintenance tasks in a Domino Domain (environment).

Process: Agent Manager

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage of the Lotus Domino Agent Manager process, which runs scheduled agents, (usually multiple instances). The number of namgr tasks depends on the day vs. night settings in the server document.

Process: Calendar Connector

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage of the Lotus Domino Calendar Connector process. This process handles free-time requests from users/other servers used for calendaring functionality for PIM functionality for user calendaring and reservations.

Process: Event Monitor

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage of the Lotus Domino Event Monitor process, which monitors the system for events to handle.

Process: IMAP Server

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage of the Lotus Domino IMAP server process. This process provides the mail IMAP server for Domino that handles mail clients that use the IMAP format.

Process: LDAP Server

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage of the Lotus Domino LDAP server process. This process runs the Domino LDAP server on the administrative server for the Lotus Domain. This is not usually run on other Domino servers.

Process: POP3 Server

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage of the Lotus Domino POP3 server process. This process provides the mail POP3 server for Domino that handles mail clients that use the POP3 format.

Process: Replicator

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage of the Lotus Domino Replicator process. This process replicates/syncs changes within the same applications between Domino servers. This is needed if you have more than one Domino server.

Process: Router

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage of the Lotus Domino Router process used for sending NRPC mail.

Process: Schedule Manager

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage of the Lotus Domino Schedule Manager, which performs schedule lookups for PIM (Personal Information Management) for user calendaring and reservations.

Process: Database Server

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage of the Lotus Domino Database Server process, which provides core database services. There will be multiple threads handling this process and user/server connections.

Process: SMTP Server

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage of the Lotus Domino SMTP server process, which is used for Domino servers receiving SMTP mail from Internet.

Process: Indexer

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage of the Lotus Domino Indexer process, which provides view index updates on the server.

Lotus Domino Server TCP port

This component monitor tests the ability of a Lotus Domino Server to accept incoming sessions. This port used for the replication of Lotus Notes servers. Also, the Lotus Notes Client uses this port by default to communicate with the Lotus Notes server. By default, TCP port 1352 is used.

IMAP4 User Experience Monitor

This component monitor tests an email round trip from your SMTP mail server to your IMAP4 server and measures the time it takes to complete the trip.

Note: By default, this component is disabled. To use this component, you should enable it and properly configure it. More information about this monitor can be foundhere.

POP3 User Experience Monitor

This component monitor tests an email round trip from your SMTP mail server to your POP3 mail server and measures the time it takes to complete the trip.

Note: By default, this component is disabled. To use this component, you should enable it and properly configure it. More information about this monitor can be foundhere.
