Does the DNS Clustering increase the load on the server? It seems that you are copying the zone records from each server to the others - increasing the number of files considerably.

I know many of you have converted to clustering. Anybody experience any problems?

thank you.

Go on, have a guess
No problems whatsoever, the load is negligible. I suppose if you were adding new zones or updating existing ones several times a second it would start to add load, but otherwise the traffic probably isn't that much greater than a normal zone transfer between a master and slave anyway.

You will notice a small difference only if you have small VPS than dedicated. However as chirpy said the difference is small.
