Thread-topic: [nv-l] Ping is falling behind

I have a 2 CPU machine and no caching DNS. My /etc/hosts file has 1304 entries in it. We use a “golden hosts file” in our environment. Will that have a big impact? If it will I can edit the hosts file and reduce it.

Are you saying you are running this on a single processor box? Polling 30K interfaces? No caching DNS?

Do you have any of those devices in your /etc/hosts file? How many lines long is your /etc/hosts file? Is it just the local machine, or has other things been put in over time?
