WebFaction
Community site: login faq

The WebFaction server I am on have three DNS servers configured. Two of which are run by WebFaction itself and the last one is not in the same data center (not even in the same state). I figured that DNS servers run by SoftLayer is a lot faster and think it would be beneficial to make the switch.

nameserver 10.0.80.11
nameserver 10.0.80.12

The WebFaction server is also configured to use global NTP pool which is 40-100+ milliseconds away and may introduce jitter to the system. I think switching to NTP server run by SoftLayer with US NTP pool will make ntpd run smoother.

server servertime.service.softlayer.com prefer
server 0.us.pool.ntp.org
server 1.us.pool.ntp.org
server 2.us.pool.ntp.org
server 3.us.pool.ntp.org

Thanks for the suggestions. I've passed them along to our sysadmin team for consideration.
