Monitoring a cluster

Domino® provides several ways to find out what is happening in a cluster and make adjustments to keep the cluster running smoothly and efficiently, so that no server is overloaded. You can monitor failover, workload balancing, and cluster replication to see how efficiently the cluster is running.

When running as part of a cluster, a Domino® server constantly monitors its workload, the workload of the other servers in the cluster, and the availability of databases throughout the cluster. In addition, Domino® monitors statistics and events that are relevant to a cluster.

There are many ways to view this information. For example, you can view it from the server console or in the log file or in the Statistics pane in the Domino® Administrator. In addition, you can collect statistic reports in the Monitoring Results database and then use the Domino® Administrator to look at the statistic reports.
