comment Configuring DNS resolver failover timeout
The Solaris 10 resolv.h shows 5 seconds as default timeout and 2 tries default. The timeout value doubles on each retry, so the default Solaris settings would not move on to the next nameserver until 15 seconds have passed in fruitless querying (5 secs for the first attempt plus 10 secs for the second). Whether or not any particular application will be amenable to waiting that 15 seconds without complaining is anyone’s guess.
