Documentum xPlore: Tuning of JVM for high throughput and low CPU usage

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

Sometimes you have java processes or even jboss servers using a lot of CPU. In my example I had an xPlore dsearch server using like 98% of the cpu. When using jconsole and jvisualvm I figured out the garbage collector was using 50 to 60% of the cpu time. This was because the server was indexing and accessing the internal DB very often. Hence a lot of objects were created, the JVM was not correctly…

Documentum xPlore: Several ways to start an Index Agent

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In order to start index agents, you have several ways, depending on how you need to start them. 1. Use the documentum job dm_FTIndexAgentBoot. If you setup start_index_agents=T in the server.ini, the job will be called when the docbases are started. 2. Use the web interface: Login to http://server:9200/IndexAgent/ with docbase credentials and select “Start in normal mode” 3. Login to DA and go to Indexing Management -> Index Agents and Index Servers Right click…

Documentum – Unable to configure IDS 7.3 for a docbase

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

In this blog, I will talk about an issue with the IDS 7.3 which is installed on a Content Server 7.3. The IDS is the Interactive Delivery Services. It is a product provided by OpenText that needs to be installed on a Content Server (for the “Source” part) and on a Target Server (for the “Target” part). The IDS can be used to publish content from a Documentum repository to a target machine for use…

Enable Trusted Content Services (TCS) license in Documentum Content Server

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

The Trusted Content Services is a pack of features that you can enable/purchase to gain more security for your Content Server. The main key features are listed in this documentation: https://www.emc.com/collateral/software/data-sheet/h3138-security-ds.pdf In our case, we wanted to benefit from the Repository Encryption feature: Repository Encryption: Documentum TCS prevents intruders from accessing information even if they obtain unauthorized access to repository files at the file-system or storage level. This capability protects content against an operating system…

Documentum: IndexAgent uninstalled continues to queue requests

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

We had a strange behavior by a customer regarding the indexing queue. We used to have two IA configured and we uninstalled one. I figured out that we still had indexing queue requests for the old index agent while it was totally uninstalled. I checked the following objects to see if the agent was still configured somewhere: dm_fulltext_index, dm_ftengine_config, dm_ftindex_agent_config. But the old IA was not declared anymore. The main problem is that it continued…

Documentum – RCS 7.3 – Issue with projections?

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

In the last two blogs I posted, I mentioned that I was working on silent installations with CS 7.3 (in HA). The “issue” (it’s more like a common mistake) I will describe in this blog is linked to the HA installation. You can face that using the silent or GUI installation, it doesn’t matter.   To replicate this behavior, it’s pretty simple: so basically on the first Content Server, I installed a Global Registry and a few…

Documentum – RCS 7.3 – dm_server_config cannot contain dash

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

As mentioned in this blog, I was recently installing a new 7.3 P05 environment. Actually, this environment was in HA and it was the first silent installation of a Remote Content Server for me. I already created a lot of blogs related to issues with the CS 7.3 but since this was my first RCS 7.3 installation, I was kind of expecting to face some issues… I wasn’t disappointed!   So let’s start with the…

Documentum – CS 7.3 – Issue with dmqdocbroker

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

Beginning of this month, I was building a new environment in 7.3 P05 (using silent installation but this isn’t relevant here) and I found a strange behaviour from the dmqdocbroker so I wanted to share that. You will see below an error message “Input has special characters …”. This is specific to the CS 7.3 for which we opened a SR with EMC/OTX some months ago (beginning of this year during the first CS 7.3…

Documentum – Unable to install xCP 2.3 on a CS 7.3

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

Beginning of this year, we were doing our first silent installations of the new Documentum stack. I already created a few blogs to talk about some issues with CS 7.3 and xPlore 1.6. This time, I will talk about xCP 2.3 and in particular the installation on a CS 7.3. The Patch of xCP as well as the patch for the CS 7.3 doesn’t matter since all versions are affected. Please just note that the…

Documentum – Using DA with Self-Signed SSL Certificate

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

A few years ago, I was working on a Documentum project and one of the tasks was to setup all components in SSL. I already published a lot of blogs on this subject but there is one I wanted to do but never really took the time to publish it. In this blog, I will therefore talk about Documentum Administrator in SSL using a Self-Sign SSL Certificate. Recently, a colleague of mine had the same…
