ID111 was a great session. A lot of very detailed, nitty-gritty technical stuff, explained very clearly by Rob Gearhart. He dealt with the issues of OS support for RAM, OS reporting of RAM availability to applications, process virtual sddress space, and shared memory space, all of which impact the amount of memory a single Domino partition can make use of. One of the things he mentioned early on, which is too often missed, is the fact that the LotusScript interpreter and the JVM do not go through the Domino server's memory manager. There have been some blog discussions about this, and speculation about what the impact of 64 bit Windows will be, but if you really want the definitive answers this is the presentation to check out,. I may post some bullets from my notes later, but really... get the presentation.

Rob's presentation is fantastic and I'm glad I chose a few non-developer sessions in this track.

a bit late maybe, but I was really impressed with Rob. An excellent session, for such a young guy! And friendly too; I met him in the developers' lab later, and again he impressed me with his level of knowlegdge and his friendly demeanor. Whatever he's earning, he deserves a raise
It's a good signal, too, when IBM can attract young talent like that for Lotus Notes/Domino-related work, in a growing economy!
