Lotusphere 2011 – ‘That’s Not My Name’. Photo review

Some photos taken at Lotusphere With no mention of Lotus during the conference I thought ‘That’s Not My Name’ by the ‘Ting Tings’ would be appropriate. All the photos have been added to the Flickr ‘Lotusphere 2011 – Official Group’

Java memory issues and HTTPUseNotesMemory

We’ve been suffering from various http memory related issues. We run on Solaris and Domino on Solaris is 32bit (and apparently staying this way). So despite having 64GB of memory in our servers, we’re constrained by the 4GB shared memory limit. The issues seem to relate to Java. At various times agents stop working due…

What to expect at Lotusphere – A Lotusphere 2009 conference report

I was searching through old Lotusphere resources preparing for this year’s conference and found a conference report from Lotusphere 2009. If you will be new to Lotusphere this year, it might give you an insight into the conference. ¬† Lotusphere 2009 [Redacted] and Paul Hudson attended the annual Lotusphere conference at Disney’s Dolphin and Swan…

Gravatar – the LotusScript solution

On the XPages Blog, there’s an article by Jeremy Hodge, ‘Gravatar – XPages Managed Bean‘. Gravatars are those little images of people that you see in blog comments that seem to work across most blogs. For those of us who haven’t upgraded our servers to 8.5.x, I thought I’d post the LotusScript solution that we…

Fixing my WordPress blog

My blog’s been unavailable for most of the day due to a problem. The blog is hosted on MediaTemple. I was playing with their ‘1 click’ install of Drupal and because it wouldn’t install I tried changing various database passwords (I know poke and hope) to complete the process, updating my password in the wp-config.php…

A decade with Domino

This blog post has been a long time in writing. From about 1998, my team was responsible for supporting learning technology projects within the University. The range of projects was diverse from programmable computer chip simulations to supporting more traditional computer aided learning packages such as CD-ROMs or web-based ‘interactive’ learning objects. We also had…

Permissions Issue

Last year I blogged about a permissions issue with Domino 7 running in a Solaris zone. ¬†Domino’s own ID file’s permissions are reset so only root has access rights. This stops the server from executing it’s own code. The problem also effects other files modified by the HTTP task such as DTF files, cgi-bin, and…

HTTP Redirect buffer overflow

We use the Domino redirect [url] to direct to users to different web pages. One of our systems handles the Athens devolved authentication used many by UK Universities to provide access to journal subscriptions to students off-campus. Athens basically works by a set of redirects and can be used by users either pre journal search…

Denial of service caused by Google Search Appliance OneBox module

We use a Google Search Appliance to index our Domino websites. We use Google’s OneBox module to execute FT searches to return results from a database we don’t want Google to index (basically 80,000 journal records we don’t want to be counted against our license total). Yesterday we upgraded our Search Appliance to the latest…
