Beyond the tools: reporting, integration, and automation

Thorough documentation and reporting are essential aspects of your work, and when talking about something as important as replication, reporting is key. When you work in replicationEZ you work in a feature-rich interface that is a tool in and of itself. Learn about replicationEZ’s essential extras: from quick reporting, to integration with your environment, to Ytria’s adaptive API.

Export data quickly and directly from any replicationEZ grid. Create reports in HTML, Excel, XML, and CSV, or simply copy/paste your data from the grid.

Leverage built-in bridges between replicationEZ and other EZ Suite products, as well as your native Designer client.

Extend replicationEZ’s scope through your own scripts that let you repeat functions across an even larger scale. You can even use the command line integration to create push-button, multi-step process launchers.

Scan multiple servers for invalid ACL entries, and export a report of your findings to an Excel sheet, all in only a few clicks.

Find and report all scheduled agents that have and have not run on a given server and create a concise report of agents in both conditions.

Local installation, far-reaching power

Installed on the client side only, replicationEZ is completely independent from your Notes client. Because of this, replicationEZ offers you speed and power, and independence that just isn't possible with any native solution.

replicationEZ is a standalone compiled application coded in an efficient, low-level language. When installed, its executable file (replicationEZ.exe) is detached into your Notes Program Directory. Each time you start replicationEZ, a new Notes session is created, independent from your Notes client session. This means that replicationEZ runs parallel to your Notes and Designer client and thus will not interfere in any way.

In fact, you can think of replicationEZ as a special “Admin client” to help you oversee and manage all aspects of database replication across as many servers as you may need.

You can even select which ID you want to work with—without having to switch IDs in your Notes or Designer client!

Like all other Ytria tools, replicationEZ is installed on the client side ONLY. There is no need to install anything on the server, and being a local install means no system downtime.

replicationEZ offers you a multitude of features that surpass the functionality available in both the Notes and Designer clients (such as the ability to parse and display databases and their basic properties even for encrypted databases, or those you can’t normally access), but our tools NEVER bypass Notes security. Certain key options, such as modifying application settings, analyzing their content or ACLs, issuing console commands, or enabling Full Access Administration, require you to have the proper access rights to use them.

With replicationEZ, you can modify hundreds or thousands of databases in merely a few clicks. With that much such power available, how can you know that you’re making the right changes? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Your modifications are protected by a two-step saving process that allows you to review your changes before deploying them—regardless of the modifications you’ve made.

The fact that replicationEZ is an independent, compiled program puts it in the position to outperform the Admin client or agents coded in LotusScript. But beyond that, replicationEZ can handle hundreds (even thousands) of databases across a multitude of servers, as well as display over 80 properties and settings for all those databases at once, giving you a much better overview of your global replication landscape. Loading that many databases and their settings is almost instantaneous, but scanning their contents (documents, designs, and even different classes of designs) to compare replicas can take a bit of time. We’ve built a bunch of pre-loading filter options into replicationEZ so you can pinpoint only the databases that you absolutely need to work with.

replicationEZ operates through the official Notes API channels; any changes that you perform will be reflected in the appropriate Domino logs upon saving them, however, we offer much more extensive history and log options than the native solutions. You can also create a special Modification Log database in which every single save operation performed using our EZ Suite tools will be logged. You can place this database on either your local machine, or one of your servers. You can even use our licensing system to route logging for all EZ Suite users into a central log database.
