The second part of the conference « Admin2004 Europe » took
place in Paris in December 2004.
The administrators and developers using Lotus/Domino are very
familiar with the event’s organizer — the magazine “The View”.
The conference usually took place in the United States (Boston).
The transatlantic success wave has brought the conference to
reach Copenhagen and then Paris, to the great satisfaction of
numerous IBM/Lotus technology professionals who arrived from all
over Europe and even from further remote destinations.
Hypersoft, the world leader in metrology, analysis, reporting
and metrics of service levels for messaging systems, naturally
became Premium Gold Sponsor of the two European conferences
"Admin 2004", where the industry experts held more than 30
sessions in six major tracks.
Important and popular issues covered in the conference included
“Performance Monitoring and Tuning” and “Upgrade Planning and
Implementation”. Hypersoft in co-operation with EDS MCS
(Messaging Collaborative Services) presented a session oriented
on service level management and improvement by the means of
monitoring and efficient analysis of the messaging
infrastructure (« Improve IT Service Management by Monitoring
and Reporting the Availability , Quality and Utilization of your
Messaging Services – New messaging SLA : a customer requirement
The goal of this session was to draw attention to the growing
problems faced by companies trying to deliver services of higher
quality, and to discuss the IT Service Management approach and
the best ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) experience. It was an
attempt to evaluate the importance of having a proactive
approach rather than reactive for information services
management (Reporting Analysis vs. Real-Time Supervision).
Nowadays the IT market clearly shows that — to respond to
availability limitations that go crescendo, to assure optimal
service quality for users, to execute efficiently metrical
processes in messaging and collaboration applications real-time
monitoring became insufficient. Henceforward, it is of primary
importance to have a perfect knowledge of your messaging
infrastructure, of its functioning and of its usage. Quality
measurements for the delivered services need to be performed
from the end-user perspective, i.e. it is important to
distinguish the service quality "relative" to the system and the
service quality perceived by the customer. This would not have
become possible without the appropriate technology.
Service level management and perfect knowledge of your messaging
infrastructure are true magic for mastering IT costs, creation
of a reliable expenses model and adequate billing.
With this conference being oriented strongly on the current
situation in the IT services market, and particularly on the
market of business messaging and peripheral services, Hypersoft
made public the new version of OmniAnalyser, v.8.7. as well as
its business intelligence software OmniContext.
Having arrived at the end of the three conference days and
taking in consideration the general satisfaction expressed by
numerous visitors, it is safe to bet that Admin will come back
to Europe next year and why not once more to Paris!

In the coming years, the growing confidence of organizations on
the messaging infrastructure and its related business processes
will considerably change IT group priorities. The business
criticality of e-mail and other communication means will force
organizations to apply data center operational disciplines to
these as well. This includes pro-active service level
monitoring, billing, failover, historical data analysis, and
exception reporting that have been largely absent from messaging
operations. Organizations must adopt these disciplines to enable
delivery of higher levels of uptime and provide better service

Boston, May 14, 2004
Hypersoft Information Systems announces at
ADMIN 2004 the new availability monitoring functionality in its
award-winning OmniAnalyser™ software.
This new features include calculating mail server availability
separately for each Store when it concerns Miscrosoft Exchange
Availability. Server availability in the network can now be also
probed by sending TCP/IP pings. Apart from just pinging the
server, pinging any specified port is also possible. If the
server hosts pages or files that are available via HTTP
protocol, the availability of such HTTP resources can also be
checked with the new version of OmniAnalyser™, even if accessing
these resources requires special authorization with the HTTP
server. Mail links between local and remote servers can now be
checked by sending Round Trip messages, information on which
will also be present in OmniAnalyser™ reports.
For these new types of availability information, real-time and
history reporting, as well as sending alerts when critical
situation occur, are available. System administrators can now
have data on most critical aspects of system availability
collected in one tool and delivered exactly where they need it.
Mail server availability information was present in OmniAnalyser™
reports since early OmniAnalyser™ versions, however, as the
product grows to embrace more and more sources of data, these
new availability features are the next step in making
OmniAnalyser™ the ultimate product for all monitoring, metering
and reporting needs.

German-based Hypersoft Information Systems
GmbH extends the virus reporting capabilities of its
OmniAnalyser™ messaging reporting and analysis software. It now
integrates ScanMail™ for Lotus Notes™ which offers comprehensive
virus protection and content security for the Lotus Domino™
OmniAnalyser™ now processes all ScanMail™ log files and, thus,

messages blocked. This includes statistics on names, groups and
types of viruses, their total counts as well as the names of
originators and recipients of blocked messages.
Further, OmniAnalyser™ reports on the ScanMail™ application’s
health and status. The first type is a real-time report
indicating whether the virus engine is working correctly or not
by periodically sending an infected test mail to the servers.
The second type of report provides a summary about all running
ScanMail™ applications installed on different servers throughout
the network. This includes the server name, ScanMail™ version
number, version number of the virus engine, and the pattern
All reports can be easily scheduled and fully automated thanks
to various user defined filter settings. Reports can be either
published through the Intranet/Internet or distributed via
e-mail as CSV, HTML, or XML files. OmniAnalyser™ provides
administrators a familiar, intuitive web interface to generate
and configure new reports and retrieve historical reports.

Orlando, January 25, 2004
Hypersoft is currently presenting the new
OmniAnalyser™ version 8.0 at the Lotusphere in Orlando, Florida.
In addition to its well established comprehensive traffic and
usage analysis function, OmniAnalyser™ is now delivering new
analytic capabilities for Domino replication schedules and
delays as well as unique topology-based analysis of messaging
and application traffic.
OmniAnalyser™ 8.0 features numerous new reports such as Message
Delivery Delays, Message Size Distribution, Database Replication
Delays, and many others reports and the Self-Analysis report
which displays the internal state of the OmniAnalyser™ database
so that any missing data can be easily identified by user, and
re-requested with the help of OmniAnalyser™ console.
Improvements in reporting functionality include new drill-down
functionalities for the Server Availability report and an
“Access Time” filter for hiding servers under a critical latency
value from the report.
The new version of the OmniAnalyser™ Integration Server can
automatically publish graphs together with reports or publish a
report as an XML file on the network. They have pivot tables,
which display details of data collection for each date for
Mailboxes and Server Availability data and help troubleshooting
data collection. The redesigned reports list allows users the
logon to Hypersoft reports website, to see only the most
frequently used reports and hide the rest of the reports tree.
There also are several innovations on the functionality side.
The monitoring Agent can now monitor and alert on any specified
parameter on a Windows machine, report on the performance
history of monitored parameters, and monitor the Windows event
log as well as any events from the Lotus Domino server logs. The
Scan Agent is now able to check Last Access information for
users of the mail servers.
Further improvements have been made to ensure seamless
OmniAnalyser™ operation across all supported platforms, which
currently include Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, SendMail and
Sun One Integration Server (iPlanet).
The operation of OmniAnalyser™ has become more robust with the
introduction of the Self-Analysis report with the complete
details of the enterprise-wide messaging data collection
