"And again, since local response time is not an issue, I am not optimistic that minor tweaks to the application will solve this problem."

Actually Phil, I'm with Chris on this one. "Local vs distant" is EXACTLY the scenario where poorly written code will be exposed. I don't mean to disparage other developers, but ten years ago in the middle of the boom, there were a lot of guys out there writing code that shouldn't have been. When I did consulting, I made a pretty good living rewriting their apps.

Of course, that doesn't mean that running the debugger this time will find anything that will justify bringing in a contractor to fix the issues. But you ought to at least look.

Chris,

Thanks for the tip, but we don't have any developers on staff. This would
probably generate some good details for us, but we would not be able to
act on it without bringing in contract programmers. And again, since
local response time is not an issue, I am not optimistic that minor tweaks
to the application will solve this problem.

Re: Domino on 400 with Citrix






One thing I've found handy when doing troubleshooting with client
performance is to enable some debug parameters in the client notes.ini.
Just
paste in this section below and then remove the semi-colon from each of
the
parameters after closing the client. Then when you launch the client
you'll
get some good debugging. You'll also get a black console window that will
show everything as it's happening. When you get to the part where
performance is bad, flip to the window and see where it's waiting.

An example of debug output for a problem that was because of unread marks
being enabled is this:
RCV_UNREAD[22060] 48938 ms. [106+8850=8956]

As you can see, the 48,938 ms meant that we were waiting around 49 seconds
for the unread marks (that weren't needed) to be calculated. Hopefully
you'll be able to see a lag and pinpoint where it may be.
