Domino agent runtime

This tip describes the Domino agent runtime.

If you're ever curious how long it takes for one of your agents to run, (i.e. nightly agents), you can use this simple piece of code. It will print the output on the command console or you can add a "sendemail" chunk of code to drop the runtimes in your mailbox the following day. Hope you find it useful.

REM Copy to Declarations section
Dim dt1 As NotesDateTime, dt2 
As NotesDateTime
Dim dtdiff As Long, dtvalue As Double

REM Copy to top of initialize section
Set dt1=New NotesDateTime(Now)

REM Copy to bottom of initialize section, 
right above End Sub if you don't have any other
 labels or GoTo's that would stop you from 
hitting this code
REM Elapsed time to run agent 
Set dt2=New NotesDateTime(Now)
REM Time difference in seconds
REM Time diff minutes
dtvalue = dtdiff/60  
REM Time diff in hours
'dtvalue = dtdiff/3600  
REM Time diff in days
'dtvalue = dtdiff/84600  

Print "Elapsed seconds = " & dtdiff & ",
 elapsed mins = " & dtvalue
