Monitoring Notes RPCs and assessing application performance

Here's a useful setting for monitoring Notes RPCs (Remote Procedure Calls) and assessing application performance (the length of time it takes to open a view).

To activate, include the following entries in your notes.ini file and restart Notes:

Client_Clock=1 Debug_Console=1 Debug_Outfile=c:notesdebug.txt

The Client_Clock setting activates the tracing of the Notes RPCs.

The Debug_Console setting displays the RPCs in a Notes Debug Window. The Debug_Outfile setting writes the output to the specified file. ent to the server.

This variable is only supported on Notes 4.5 or higher on the Win32 platforms.

This was first published in November 1999
