Number of Fileshare Resources

Discussion in 'Clustering' started by Jeannie Marcel, Jul 13, 2005.

  1. Is there a recommended number of fileshare resources that can be created
    before using the 'share subdirectories' advanced option?
    Is 100 separate file share resources on one virtual server a bit too many?
    Thanks for any advice.

  3. Many thanks
    I am inclined to have less file share resources but my customer is adament
    it is OK as he has seen articles saying over 900 resources are supported.
    I know it will affect failover times. Are there any figures which indicate
    how much memory/system resourcres a cluster resource uses.

  4. Too much relies on your individual environment (the stresses on the
    resources) and the power of the resources themselves (scaling up your nodes)
    to give you a plain answer. You need to test for your environment.
