Last Design Modified / Modified By. We have now added Last Modified Date and Last Modified By to the detailed design analysis information we collect. This is visible in the Design Element Details dialog and is also included in our export to XML files.
Similarly, the Modified By information is now available in the Design Element Differences dialog (shown when comparing with a template or reference database).
Finally, the latest of the design modifications shown above is rolled up into the Design Modified Date and Design Modified By properties for the database records themselves and is available in views and reports. Note that Design Modified Date was already available here and came from the database header scans. Now we replace the header information with (possibly) more precise information when you do the Design Analysis.
Timeout on long analysis tasks. We have added a global option which will set a limit for how much time the tool will spend analyzing and one database. If the time is exceeded, the scan will stop and the tool throw an exception, just like it would if the database was not accessible. If you have the tool set to log exceptions without interruption, it will immediately move on to the next database.
Resolve truncated user names in usage analysis data. Since the data that Domino stores for user activity truncates user names to 32 characters, we have added a way to resolve truncated user names in Domino Directory. This will be an option, since we know it will slow down usage scans and will only be available in the Recompute function. This feature uses the configured User/Group resolution server for performing the Domino NameLookup functions. Note that you can select multiple databases for the Recompute and leverage cashing of any NameLookup operations for the entire group. The tool always looks for “known long names” in the acl and data analysis first to avoid doing the NameLookup whenever possible.
