ServicePointManager.EnableDnsRoundRobin ServicePointManager.EnableDnsRoundRobin ServicePointManager.EnableDnsRoundRobin ServicePointManager.EnableDnsRoundRobin Property

Definition

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether a Domain Name Service (DNS) resolution rotates among the applicable Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.

public:
 static property bool EnableDnsRoundRobin { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public static bool EnableDnsRoundRobin { get; set; }
member this.EnableDnsRoundRobin : bool with get, set
Public Shared Property EnableDnsRoundRobin As Boolean

Property Value

false if a DNS resolution always returns the first IP address for a particular host; otherwise true. The default is false.

Examples

The following code example sets this property.

ServicePointManager::UseNagleAlgorithm = true;
ServicePointManager::Expect100Continue = true;
ServicePointManager::CheckCertificateRevocationList = true;
ServicePointManager::DefaultConnectionLimit =
    ServicePointManager::DefaultPersistentConnectionLimit;
ServicePointManager::EnableDnsRoundRobin = true;
ServicePointManager::DnsRefreshTimeout = 4*60*1000; // 4 minutes
ServicePointManager.UseNagleAlgorithm = true;
ServicePointManager.Expect100Continue = true;
ServicePointManager.CheckCertificateRevocationList = true;
ServicePointManager.DefaultConnectionLimit = ServicePointManager.DefaultPersistentConnectionLimit;
ServicePointManager.EnableDnsRoundRobin = true;
ServicePointManager.DnsRefreshTimeout = 4*60*1000; // 4 minutes
ServicePointManager.UseNagleAlgorithm = True
ServicePointManager.Expect100Continue = True
ServicePointManager.CheckCertificateRevocationList = True
ServicePointManager.DefaultConnectionLimit = _
    ServicePointManager.DefaultPersistentConnectionLimit
ServicePointManager.EnableDnsRoundRobin = True
ServicePointManager.DnsRefreshTimeout = 4*60*1000

Remarks

When more than one IP address is associated with a host name, a DNS resolution normally returns only the first IP address. If you set this property to true, then subsequent DNS resolutions will cycle through all available IP addresses for a particular host. This option is useful when a service uses DNS as a load balancing mechanism between servers or server clusters.
