Making Domino run lean and mean is similar to tuning other applications on IBM i. There are things you can do based on your environment to make Domino perform better on some systems that won't make much difference on others. There are also plenty of additional factors at the hardware and operating system level, such as the existing workload of the partition that Domino is hosted on, the amount of disk arms in use, and the communications infrastructure both on the system and attached to the system.
