DFS Replication lag between 2 targets
Posted on 2008-10-22
I have 1 DFS link replicated between two targets.
My two targets are 2003 servers, one as a file server, the other one as TS server.
My main problem is that on my TS server the frs-staging folder is full of hundred files; certains with more than 1hour old. The other one, the file server, keeps its frs-staging folder, nearly empty; I mean that I can see files arriving (NTFRS_CMP_xxxxx) and being deleted so I presume treated by the DFS.
How can I "tune" DFS, on TS server to accelerate the files treatment ? How can I avoid this slow treatment ?
I've also exclude from real time scan the frs-staging folder from Symantec Antivirus Client 10.1 on both.
Other precision, the TS server is really busy (swapping memory, high CPU load)
Edit: After several monitoring, I can see the avg distk queue lengh to 100% meaning high I/O activity.
Thanks for your answers.
