publisher has heavily fragmented drive

Can anyone provide any guidance as to what Cisco's recommended procedure is for defragging a CCM's drive. I have a customer's publisher running 4.1(3) whose drive is 73% fragmented. It took 5 hours to apply some patches over the weekend. Way longer that I expected.


Re: publisher has heavily fragmented drive

Step 1. Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter.

Step 2. Select the C: drive and click the Defragment button.

Call processing is optimized to run from memory, so disk fragmentation does not directly affect it. However, depending on the trace level set, CallManager can be very disk I/O-bound. As the disk drive starts to get full, fragmentation can affect the speed at which trace files are written. Cleaning up temporary files and defragmenting can then improve performance

Re: publisher has heavily fragmented drive

I'm thinking of trying this at 2am in the morning (should be no ccm i/o on the backend). Thanks for the info.
