Setting up the Server Health Monitor

To create Server Health Monitor reports and historical charts, you must enable both the Server Health Monitor and statistic reporting.


  1. From the Domino® Administrator, choose File > Preferences > Administration Preferences.
  2. Click Monitoring, and then enable Generate server health statistics and reports.
  3. For Poll servers every n minutes, enter a value from 1 to 60 minutes.
    Note: The higher the number of servers to monitor, the larger the polling interval to enter. For timely monitoring, enter a value between 1 and 10.
  4. Optional: To start the server monitor automatically, enable Automatically monitor servers at startup.
  5. Click Statistics, and then enable Generate statistic reports while monitoring or charting statistics.
  6. For Generate reports every n minutes, enter a value greater than or equal to the server polling interval specified in Step 3.
  7. Wait a few minutes longer than the polling interval, and then open the Health Monitoring Database (DOMMON.NSF) to see the Health report.

What to do next

The Server Health Monitor does not require any specific Domino® server configuration, but you can generate more accurate reports by following these guidelines:

  • Enable platform statistics on the server. Platform statistics are enabled, by default, in Domino®. Follow the specific instructions for your platform. You may need to perform additional steps to ensure that platform statistics are working and are fully enabled on your platform.
  • Make sure you have at least View-only Administrator rights for every server you want to monitor.
  • Use a TCP server event generator as a self probe to create Quality of Service (QOS) statistics.
