How to Make Domino Deployment and Monitoring Radically Easier
We recently hosted a webinar co-hosted with Panopta, our partner, on how to create a controlled, efficient Domino deployment (regardless of where you want your servers).  Panopta helps IT teams easily manage large-scale infrastructure monitoring from a single pane of glass, regardless of infrastructure deployment. Panopta works with us to create pre-built Domino dashboards for immediate insight into the most relevant health metrics, automated runbooks to minimize repetitive manual triage, and built-in thresholds and easy dynamic alerting and triage. If you’re interested in a trial, sign up here. Those of you who joined learned how to get complete visibility of your Domino servers' key health metrics in easy-to-use dashboards, ensure the right person is notified in case of any health or performance issues, and solve problems with automated remediation instead of manual intervention. The webinar was well-attended, and great questions were asked. We provide the questions and answers here. Q. Is there an on-premises-only version of Panopta?  A. No, it’s cloud-only. Q. Do you need to have Domino v11 to use the solution?  A. Panopta works with Domino v10, Domino v11 and hopefully well into the future! Q. Can you comment on overlaps with native Domino features (e.g. Domino Domain Monitoring) and whether the best tool for the job has been clearly identified?  A. There are many tools out there to monitor Domino and other infrastructure besides that can be a good fit depending on your team and their appetite for manual work. Our value at Panopta is having monitoring experts do a lot of the heavy lifting for you and having this first-class integration with Domino. Q. What is the raw data regarding Domino server? How do you gather the real-time Domino data?   A. Domino outputs metrics that we're set up to read and stream back to the cloud...
