About the Lotus and IBM Notes Report Pack

About the Lotus and IBM Notes Report Pack

The MessageStats Report Pack for Lotus and IBM Notes extends MessageStats by adding the ability to gather configuration and content information for the Lotus and IBM Notes environment.

The report pack stores the information in the MessageStats database, to which additional tables are added when you install the report pack. The database provides content for the web-based MessageStats Reports.

You can use the report pack as an assessment tool in planning for a Notes to Exchange migration.

How Do the Notes Report Packs Differ?

The MessageStats Report Pack for Lotus and IBM Notes primarily gathers report information directly from the Domino servers in your Notes environment.

The report pack includes reports about mailbox sizes, security, and delegates as well as reports about mailbox content such as private and shared folders, encrypted messages, and links. Other reports provide inventory details about your Domino servers, users, and mailboxes, allowing you to identify orphaned mailboxes or inactive mailboxes.

An earlier report pack, MessageStats Report Pack for Lotus Notes Migration 1.0, collected all its report information from a Quest Notes Migrator database.

The MessageStats Report Pack for Lotus and IBM Notes, version 2.0 and later, contains some of the same reports that were in the MessageStats Report Pack for Lotus Notes Migration 1.0 release. Specifically the newer report pack includes the following Notes Migration status reports:

Information for the Notes Migration status reports is collected directly from a Notes Migrator database.

If you also want to view the Notes Pre-Migration Assessment reports, based on information in a Notes Migrator database, you can install the MessageStats Report Pack for Lotus Notes Migration 1.0 release as well.

Application Components

MessageStats is comprised of the following key components:

You must have the MessageStats core product installed before you can install the MessageStats Report Pack for Lotus and IBM Notes.

The MessageStats Server consists of the following components:

The task processors that are installed with the report pack collect and process messaging information from a Domino database.

MessageStats stores the information in a centralized SQL database, which provides the content for web-based reports.

MessageStats Reports provide summary and detailed information that includes critical metrics for resource usage, capacity, storage use, delivery times, and migration preparedness.

If your MessageStats installation is all on one computer, you would install all the report pack components on the same computer. However, if you have a distributed MessageStats installation, you must distribute the report pack components as well.
