DirectoryService high CPU utilization
Authored by: captainulf on Jul 26, '10 01:51:19AM
Has anyone tried putting the hosts information into the native DirectoryService Defaults node (or possibly a shadow node) using the dscl command? Does it make for better or worse performance than the /etc/hosts file?

You'd enter a faux host using the syntax below in Terminal.app (obviously this would need to be scripted if you want to transfer an existing 16k line hosts file)

sudo dscl localhost -create /Local/Default/Hosts/someadserver.example.com IPAddress 127.0.0.1
