Hi,
We want to know the exact Bandwidth taken by Lotus Notes 7 to connect to IBM Lotus Domino server 7.0.3.
If any expert can send us IBM documents related to the bandwith requirements for Lotus Notes will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I suggest you use any free network traffic measurement software (e.g. Wireshark, Ethereal, ...).
Then simulate production environment by creating various workloads and you'll get exact results.

May I ask you a question in response: to be able to tell you the exact bandwidth, can you give us exactly
- what applications you will run (mail only, other applications as well)
- how you will use them (continuously on-line, or remote with replication) ?

Would it be possible to give us a complete overview of the intended situation? For example:
We have 1 Domino server, we have 416 users of which 25 work via laptops, 390 use Notes via the network in the office and the rest uses Notes from home. We use Notes only for mail. What bandwidth is required for the home users?

I know, from experience, that if a single user intends to stay connected to a Domino server continuously, he needs 64K up and 256K down at least, otherwise the user will perceive a pretty awful system.

Dear Bosman,
- what applications you will run (mail only, other applications as well): There are 5 Workflow applications running in the LAN.These applications are accessed from Lotus Notes client.There are 450 users accesing the mails from Lotus Notes.
- how you will use them (continuously on-line, or remote with replication) : Continuously online,there is no remote access enabled for the users.

Network Setup:
1 Domino server version 7.0.2 for Maling purpose on Linux for 450 users.
Additional Domino server for Workflow purpose.
All the users access Lotus Notes from Office.No user access mail's from Home.

Additional Information:Apart from Domino Designer workflow,Websphere Portal and Oracle as a database is also running in the environment.

We want to know what bandwith will be used by Lotus Notes to access the Domino server in LAN.

Ah, brilliant, LAN-only.

This document will tell you more than I can ever tell you myself:
http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/lotus/library/ls-platform_statistics/

There is one LAN, or are there many segments? Are there any bottle-necks in the LAN?

PS This gets more and more a LAN question than Lotus Notes... It might be wise to add this question to the LAN TA.

Can you give us the results if you did some measurements?
