Performance question

Would there be a Performance Increase for OpenView Collection stations made into Cache servers or Secondary DNS servers.

My primary DNS server is on an NT box that is also a Wins server.

I am experiencing lag and am wondering about the NT box running both Wins and DNS. i am concerned with the NT DNS & Wins servers. That is how DNS is handled throughtout my organization.

I am trying to increase performance on my OpenView boxes maybe using DNS of some sort on the OpenView boxes themselves.

Re: Performance question


It would certainly enhance your server's performance to incorporate a Caching or Secondary Server on your Management Server.

The boost comes from the fact that DNS would then operate via RAM instead of via the Network.

Hope that helps.
