One-stop database property overview for databases on an entire IBM Domino server

The large amount of properties and settings offered in IBM Notes databases brings a great amount of flexibility. But getting the entire picture in the native client is hindered by not only property window navigation issues, but also limitations regarding which of these attributes are shown.

Opening an IBM Domino server in databaseEZ gives you a whole different story—a multi-level approach to analysis.

Using the concept of "tiered loading" you'll be able to see basic, key properties directly upon launch and then load an array of progressively deeper attributes in only a few more clicks—seeing all of this information in a central, feature-rich display.

Near-Instant Overview of Key Properties

See high-level properties, no access rights needed

Server-wide database property exploration can end up taking lots of time in the native Notes client. Depending on which properties you need to see, and also the access level you have to the databases in question, there are many different hang-ups that you can encounter.

databaseEZ lets you quickly call up a full audit of high-level database properties for all databases on a server directly upon loading.

Get to crucial, high-level information fast thanks to tiered data loading.

Because you can choose how deep you want to go, you'll have added control over the time it takes to get to the information you need.

* Please note that databaseEZ relies solely on the Notes C API to gather these properties and does not circumvent IBM Notes and Domino security.

See high-level properties instantly

View 82 properties (see the full list of tier 1 properties) for all databases on a given server within seconds of startup, all in one central work center without the need for database access*.

Catch common administration problems fast

Spot common administration issues fast thanks to the built-in Property Analyzer. All properties are available directly upon startup.

Report key data across servers

Compile fast basic status reports—such as database size and space used percentages—for large sectors of your Domino environment. Your reports are guaranteed to be more accurate and complete.

And more…

Perform large-scale work processes almost instantly, without even needing access to databases.

Instantly spot common administration issues such as low quota left, duplicate replica IDs, and more.

With the Property Analyzer, you can scan databases for a number of common issues, and saving your settings, you’ll get those results even before loading your databases – since this works with properties and settings available at tier. Find out more.

Detailed Server-Wide Audits for Deep Properties

Deep-dive into over 130 database properties across an entire server

IBM Notes databases have a large number of properties and settings that relate to everything from security to storage, all the way to the behavior of designs. Traditionally, most auditing or editing needs to be carried out database-by-database and without any context of the big picture across databases.

Besides the instant access to 82 key properties and settings directly upon loading a server, databaseEZ gives you access to 50 deeper attributes within only a couple of clicks—including some properties that aren't even available in your Notes client—all without any coding. Displaying all your data in a flexible, central interface where you can organize your data any way you choose for a multitude of analysis options.

Get an exclusive global map of ALL properties and settings—including those relevant for security, storage, and designs—for all databases on a server.

See a multitude of security settings at once

Get a handle on several security settings such as User Activity (recorded/confidential), encryption status and strength, require SSL connection, disable export of view data, etc. for easy large-scale audits of your entire security situation.

Maximize the full potential of storage related settings

Get a fast, server-wide analysis of Physical and Logical size, Space Used, DAOS state and statistics, max database size and quote settings, and more.

Ensure database-level design coherence

See template inheritance settings, template build properties, database type, the number of various design classes, and more across ALL databases on a server.

See detailed note counts across entire servers

See the number of documents, designs (even different design classes such as view of form class notes), private design class notes, deletion stubs in all databases across an entire server—in only a few clicks.

Get fast, detailed reports on Space Used percentages across all databases on server.

In the native Notes client, Space Used percentages must be calculated one database at a time, and even the Administrator client often lacks a full overview. Use databaseEZ to quickly spot any databases with out-of-date Space Used information and calculate them all at once in only a click. You can even fix databases with low Space Used percentages through direct console commands, or even IND file exports.

Use #41

Review your database encryption status across an entire server.

Whether you need to ensure that all databases are encrypted on behalf of the server, or you prefer not to have them encrypted, databaseEZ has you covered by letting you see the current encryption status and strength for all databases across entire server—even databases who are set to be but not yet encrypted. You can even encrypt or decrypt en-masse, directly from databaseEZ.

Mass-Modifications for Database Settings

Manage properties and settings en-masse

In addition to the time factor involved in the one-by-one process of modifying settings over several databases is the lack of full clarity when it comes to the big picture across databases.

databaseEZ lets you modify anything that you can in your Notes client, but on a server-wide scale. Modify multiple settings* (see full list below) for multiple different databases at once. And because you have all the information available to you at once within flexYgrid enabled panels, you'll have full clarity and context to any work you do.

Perform large-scale modifications on a wide array of properties and settings across all databases on a server.

See the full list of properties and settings available.

Manage basic database properties

Modify basic database properties such as 'Database Type' and 'Disable background agents', web settings like ‘Require SSL connection’, and more across multiple databases at once.

Oversee application design settings

Manage a variety of application design settings ranging from updating templates to the otherwise not-modifiable Template Build Properties (Template build name, version, date, etc.)

Easily review and adjust database quota settings.

Handle a range of replication settings

Manage replication settings ranging from the PIRC (Purge Interval Replication Control) setting to deletion stub life times, disable replication en-masse, and more.

Enable activity recording, and more

Set user activity recording states and encryption status, manage replica IDs, etc.

Quickly review and adjust the PIRC (Purge Interval Replication Control) setting across all databases.

Introduced in Domino 8.5.3, the PIRC feature prevents previously deleted documents from popping up again. But enabling this setting is a normally a heavy job, requiring attention on a per database and replica basis. With databaseEZ, you can enable PIRC for all databases in just one click.

Use #19

Manage the little-known Template Build properties en-masse.

Template Build information such as template name, version, release date, and tool information is neither well known nor easily manageable using the native administration tools. With databaseEZ you can analyze your databases (e.g. mail files) to discover what .x or FP release template they were created with, or even set template build information on your custom application for a better audit trail.
