Description



Question
How do I improve the performance of the Microsoft Load Balancer* with Recovery Solution?

Answer
Internal tests have discovered the following two performance tips:

  1. Snapshot performance can be up to three times faster when "Single" affinity used instead of "None" affinity. Open Add/Edit port rule dialog in the Cluster Properties and go to Filtering mode. Set Affinity to Single.
  2. Recovery Solution performance can also be increased when Microsoft Load Balancer is configured to operate in Multicast mode. Go to Cluster Properties > Cluster Parameters > Cluster operation mode and set to "Multicast."
