If needed, you can use two global configuration properties to control the caching of hostname-to-numeric IP address (DNS lookup) results returned from the name resolution services of the underlying operating system.
dsconfig tool to configure these properties:
- Sets the Java system property
networkaddress.cache.ttl, and controls the length of time in seconds that a hostname-to-IP address mapping can be cached. The default behavior is to keep resolution results for one hour (3600 seconds). This setting applies to the server and all extensions loaded by the server.
- Caches hostname-to-IP address results in the event of a DNS outage. This is set
trueby default, meaning name resolution results are cached. Unexpected service interruptions can occur during planned or unplanned maintenance, network outages or an infrastructure attack. This cache may allow the server to function during a DNS outage with minimal impact. This cache is not available to server extensions.
