DFS-N test team has completed some extensive Performance and Scalability testing; To start, here’s a comparison of the performance of adding links to a standalone namespace. It includes data for Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2. As you can see in pic, there’s a significant improvement between Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008. Windows Server 2003 goes “off the chart” (above 1 second) after around 30,000 links. Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 perform similarly up to about 300,000 links per namespace. After that, Windows Server 2008 R2 performs better than Windows Server 2008. We ran the tests with up to 500,000 links per namespace.
