Some performance tips for your Domino / XPages servers

When your applications has grown very big you might face a problem with performance in this case I had a customer with quite a large crm system that in some cases got very high disk io but the cpu didn’t spike.

neither did the memory almost 50% not used by the system.

So what I did was I increased the memory available for the XPage runtime JVM using HTTPJVMMaxHeapSize

and to get get better database performance I increased the database IO buffers using


also using cacheset tool I increased the amount of memory that Windows will cache files using, this can give you quite a lot of performance because Windows will keep more files in memory instead of reading everything from disk and if you have a newer server with more than 8GB of memory why not use the memory. You can change this when the server is running and find your optimal settings.

You need to trim this depending on how much free memory your server has and you don’t want to run out of memory.

If you have some more tips for the community feel free to comment.

How to get plugins working again after installing 9.0.1 FP2 IF2

The new IF2 for fickpack2 in the Client seams to mess up the locally installed plugin in the Designer client somehow. But there is an easy fix to that.

Close down the client and navigate to the workspace\applications\eclipse folder and delete everything in it (You should probably make a backup before 😉 )

restart the designer and go into File – Application – Install













Select the “Search for new features to install” option and click next


And when you get the next page all you previous plugins should be there and you just click “Finish”

Now the fun part begins by accepting all the licenses. But when that is done and your client is restarted all you plugins should be back.
