Adm01. Back from the Dead: When Bad Code Kills a Good Server

Thursday, March 24 | 08:00 - 08:45 | C. Jupiter

It's Friday and a new customer calls. Their mission critical app is taking :05 to open documents and the users are quite concerned. Where do you start when handed a 20 year old application you have never seen, on a server you barely know? Join two IBM Champions as they dissect a complex Domino performance problem from both the administration and development side to provide a complete customer solution. The session includes best practices around problem solving techniques and a checklist you can use internally to solve quickly problems you encounter.

Adm03. Logs Logs Logs: True Tales of Best (and Worst) Customer Practices

Thursday, March 24 | 16:00 - 17:00 | C. Jupiter

Properly logging and monitoring what happens in your Domino environment is critically important for both security and performance. Be it Domino, Sametime, or Traveler operating on-prem. or in hybrid and cloud environments, it is vital to have an understanding of log data structure, what is (or isn't) logged and why, and how to search logs effectively.
In this in-depth session, we'll examine all of these aspects through a discussion of best (and worst) practices regarding user activity, log analysis, security incident investigation, and more—all culled directly from hundreds of customers’ real-world experiences.
You will walk away from this presentation with a solid understanding of your log architecture, the means to set up notifications for when things go wrong, and faster ways to find what you are looking for.

Adm05. Building & Deploying SHA2 Certificates

Thursday, March 24 | 11:30 - 12:30 | D. Saturn

Two years ago enabling your site with SSL was a simple affair, buy a certificate or create your own, install it then just remember to renew it every couple of years. Then suddenly security holes are being found in SSL virtually every month , popular browsers stop connecting to your site to protect themselves, and you’re continually being told your users data is at risk. In this session we will discuss how it all went wrong and can go wrong again then go through each step of requesting, generating and deploying a 4096 SHA-2 certificate to use in a keyfile by Domino, IBM Connections, IBM Sametime and other WebSphere products. If you work with these IBM products and need to secure them as strongly as possible this session will show you how."
