Session: 1593 = The Top 10 Things That Can Go Wrong with an IBM Traveler Server, Plus How to Detect and Fix Them

IBM Connect 2016




Incredibly, I’ve attended Lotusphere/Connect over 20 times and I’m really looking forward to the new venue.

There are five surprisingly common issues that can lead to user unhappiness with your IBM Traveler server.

  1.  Running out of HTTP threads
  2. Running out of resources and going into constraint mode
  3. Hung Traveler servlet
  4. Not noticing when a server has gone from Green to Yellow or from Yellow to Red
  5. Insufficient bandwidth between the Traveler server and the mail server

We will be showcasing VitalSigns’ impressive support for the Microsoft server stack, especially Microsoft Exchange.

For the 14th year in a row RPR Wyatt will attend the conference formerly known as Lotusphere, hosted by IBM at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida.

We hope to see you there and invite you to visit with us at booth #213 and take a tour – or a deep dive of – the latest release of VitalSigns, our flagship monitoring and reporting solution for your entire IBM Messaging/Collaboration environment.

When you stop by booth #213 to say hello or to chat about your monitoring and administrative needs, make sure to enter the “Win a Mac Pack” drawing for a chance to take home a MacBook Air 13, an Apple TV, and an iPad Air. For contest details visit the NotesCode website.


Just before the conference gets officially underway, we would like to invite you to join us in a little celebration on Sunday afternoon.

RPR Wyatt has come together with other long time IBM Business Partners – Mayflower Software, Sherpa, and Crossware – to host the “Work Smart, Party Smarter” event at 4 PM on Sunday, January 26th at the Crescent Terrace.  View the party inviation and RSPV here.

Welcome and may the 2014 conference be the best event yet for all of us!

I really wonder why Product Managers do the things they do sometimes.

As a UI fanatic, it really bugs me to see stupid ‘features’.  Did a Product Manager really think that anyone quitting Skype would think that they could still receive or send instant messages?   Hello!  I’m quitting Skype.    Notice that there is no checkbox that says “Don’t warn me again”.

Idiotic Skype Message

You will never see something like that in VitalSigns, and if you do please let us know immediately and we’ll get rid of it.



For those of you who missed it, we hosted a webinar along with NotesCode to publicly demo the new VitalSigns Plus
