If you ever ran Performance Monitor on the subject sub-systems, you discovered that they are both I/O intensive.
The best performance tweak, for these Jet database services, is to choose a high performance disk sub-system:
. Choose SCSI over IDE.
. Use fast wide SCSI.
. Use RAID level 5.
. Choose hardware RAID over software.
. Use a many spindles as you can afford.
. Use a caching controller with battery backup.
. For WINS only, configure the LogFilePath to a different, high performance disk subsystem.
Use Regedt32 to navigate to:
Edit or Add Value name LogFilePath as a type REG_SZ or REG_EXPAND_SZ and set the string to the
full path to the WINS log file folder. The default is %SystemRoot%\System32\WINS.
