To make sure that View Composer works efficiently, check that your dynamic name service (DNS) operates correctly, and run antivirus software scans at staggered times.

By making sure that DNS resolution operates correctly, you can overcome intermittent issues caused by DNS errors. The View Composer service relies on dynamic name resolution to communicate with other computers. To test DNS operation, ping the Active Directory and View Connection Server computers by name.

If you stagger the run times for your antivirus software, performance of the linked-clone desktops is not affected. If the antivirus software runs in all linked clones at the same time, excessive I/O operations per second (IOPS) occur in your storage subsystem. This excessive activity can affect performance of the linked-clone desktops.
