Teamstudio Usage Auditor uses information collected by IBM Domino Activity Logging to keep track of usage and provide an overview of the level of usage for each application on each monitored server.
Domino’s Activity Logging records information as “events” related to certain activities, such as opening a Notes session, opening a database, and so on.
Usage Auditor tracks running totals for events related to Notes Client, HTTP (web browser), and Agent access to applications. The event data for these types of events isn’t homogenous; a single event does not necessarily represent a single database-open action, or a single document read or written, nor are the counts generated identical between access methods.
The goal of Usage Auditor is to provide insight into which applications are used heavily and by whom. Usage Auditor does not attempt to interpret these events; it reports on event counts. As a result, a single database-open action may generate multiple hit counts, and Notes access will likely produce fewer counts than web access due to the nature of HTTP requests and how Domino tracks them. The summary information generated from this process provides an accurate picture of the relative usage of applications within each access type.
