Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

Performance notes client

many many customer would a client notes fast and light.

actually every installation have over 31.000 files ...

so the IT need :

esclude AV folder

remove windows indexing 


And so on...

Eclipse client is part of the problem

    That sounds like: RIP Standard client, and enhance Basic Client until it matches today's requirements...

    We have removed some plugins from V10 already to reduce the footprint and runtime performance. This will be an ongoing activity to simplify the package

    Probably on my own here but on both of my mid range Windows machines there is nothing wrong with the performance of the Notes Client, it opens in 2 seconds, mail with 33,000 historical records opens mail records within milliseconds. Applications are fine unless the design of the form is poor. I don't understand the problem. Unless using FP10 then that is nightmare.

    As Ram mentioned: "We have removed some plugins from V10 already to reduce the footprint and runtime performance. This will be an ongoing activity to simplify the package"

    This will be an ongoing activity for v10 and v11. If you have SPECIFIC performance issues please open a support case for it.

    despite efforts to remove 2 plugins ...
    The client's performance is really slow compared to the competition and other software.

    any customer always says the same thing ...
    The client is heavy ...

    Will it be Eclipse's fault?
    Do you think it's normal to have a program composed of over 40,000 files?
    I do not think so ... and I also think that Eclipse is the cause of the problem

    Eclipse may be part of the problem however the looks and fell of it is now Notes. This has to be retained even is Eclipse is binned. The right hand task bar is sacrosanct!  We have SameTime Meeting, Connection, IT Support, IM etc etc

    A client software like Notes is not authorized to change settings of the Antivirus software. This will remain a task for the desktop admin. For more performance tuning tips take a look at this presentation https://www.slideshare.net/christophadler50/engage-2018-ibm-notes-and-domino-performance-boost-reloaded

    Hello Thomas,

    for give perfomance to IBM Notes Client actually the IT need to exclude FOLDER DATA of IBM Notes...

    the problem it's the thousands of files that AV need to scan and WIndows Search indexing run on CPU...

    This is the problem... and Eclipse is the cause of the problem

    Just use the basic client - it is lightning fast (start with notes.exe-basic)

    IBM: Please dont't forget the basic client  when you develop a new ui ;-)
