| | Resource Kit tool for tracking Address Book/Tasks(ToDo) synchornization events?
Please Login to Remove!
I would like to track Address Book and Tasks(ToDo) sychronization events. Ideally it would be nice if the took broke the path down like MessageFlow.exe does (for email), but I will take whatever I can get. Just poking around myself, it seems that Historicalstats.exe give me byte count totals for OTASYNC TO (in bytes) OTASYNC FROM (in bytes) events, which if I'm interpreting the Resource Kit Users' Guide correctly means Address Book and Tasks syncs from the BlackBerry Synchronization Service service. I also see that EAStatus.exe might give some visibility, too. AvailIndex.exe looked promising until I read the part about it only being for MS Exchange Server.
The other option seems to be to just cull the Miscellaneous events view of the server log on the Domino Server running the BES task.
Windows Server 2003 SP2 x86
BES 4.1.4 MR2
Handhelds with a mixture of 4.1.x and 4.2.x handheld O/S (can update all to 4.2.x if that solves my inquiry).
I'm synchronizing the Address Book with a server-based replica copy of the user's personal address book. They replicate up to the server based on a replication schedule on the client (every 10 minutes using the high-priority replication setting on the client, same as email).
The address books in question belong to executives or regional sales managers, who all have someone in an assistant role who updates the server-based replica of the address book daily. If fact, I only have the managers replicate their address books to support type-ahead addressing on the notes client. Notes replication is working just fine as reported in the Notes logs. Otherwise the majority of the modifications are happening directly on the server-based copy (which the BES to pick up whenever it scans the address book).
I just want to keep tabs on the synchronization events as triggered by the BES.
