Tool for monitoring IDTable size

There is a database on the server with a large number of deleted and created documents.
Previously, Domino 901 (ODS52) was installed in the server. About once a month, the IDTable size approached a critical value of 100%. We found out about this using the idsfull.exe utility.
Now Domino 10.0.1 FP3 (ODS 53) is installed on the server, which states a 10-fold increase in the table. But there is no means to monitor the fullness of the table. We want a new idsfull.exe that will show the correct values for ODS53 or any monitoring tools that will give such functionality.

    We suffer from this issue across many of our large applications that involve many DB's. It's a bad look for Domino as the only fix is to re-create the replica which for a 20GB DB can take a whole morning. We are hoping the move to v11 will help alleviate the issue with the ID Table being 10 times larger.
    This though would be a great asset to proactively managing ID tables.

    Yes, it would be very nice to be able to follow/monitor this. I've had an issue where a number of ODS 53 databases, due to poor programming, had their IDTable completely filled. It took us some time to find out what was the issue that broke the application suite, and from there on mitigating it. Which took a few days to sort out, during which a vital part of the application suite wasn't working.


    An ability to monitor the IDtable growth and set a limit (percent) that would trigger an alarm or a DDM  warning, would allow us to be pro-active instead of re-active.

    What do you do when you know the size of the IDtable is close to a limit?
