The benefits of defragging are amazing and if you leave Domino to “do its own thing” you’re are going to end up with a mess if you don’t have a defragmenting product.
Back in August 2008 we decided to make a Domino specific product to fix this problem “defrag.nsf” and then we enhanced it to “prevent the problem”.
It is really great that people are starting to recognise the benefits of defragging. For a long time a lot of people – particularly SAN administrators would not recognise the issue.
The benefits are real – enjoy.

As Adam’s started the history lession – back in early 2009 the driver for developing DominoDefrag was because the government department I provided consulting services to couldn’t afford “defrag.nsf”. Anyway, would you mind if I linked this into the testimony area of the DominoDefrag project?
And ditto – it’s good to see the community is really beginning to realize the benefits of defragging.

Hi Andrew (and Adam),
Andrew : You’re welcome … but you deserve everything I said (i.e. a medal or something) for this incredible project! DominoDefrag is awesome! And yes, you can link to this in the testimony area of the DominoDefrag project.
Adamns : Thanks for your reply. I had seen your product (Defrag.nsf) but the price is what kept me (actually my company) from purchasing it. I do understand that it has more features than DominoDefrag but price was the deal breaker.
Thanks to both of you for reading my post and your comments!

We’ve been using DominoDefrag and have noticed that the server does seem more responsive. We’ve also seen a bottom out point where the non domino files still need to get defragged. I noticed that you ran the windows defragger. My understanding was that you couldn’t run that while the domino server was up? Is that wrong? Did you run it while your server was up?

How is working DominoDefrag with transaction activated ?
Marc Champoux on April 1st, 2011 at 1:32 pm #
Mmm … you know I haven’t tried it on my only server that has transaction logging enabled.
I should think that DominoDefrag, because it works by calling os level api’s would not interfere with servers that have Transaction Logging enabled … however, I haven’ tested it and I can’t since I don’t have any other server with Translog enabled.
If you do try it … let me /us know about it!
