Please minimize RPC chatter on RPCs number 27 and 28 are HOSTINFO and CLNT_LIST_REGISTER.

Request is to cut down or provide some site configurable options to chatty RPCs. In this case "lsclient" is never used. It seems an excess of RPCs are sent from clients to registry server to gather information that may not be necessary.

There is some very chatty code in RPC calls proc-27 and proc-28.
The client calls and requests something, then the rgy server sends back his ?last known uname ?a, and last known license server?
Then a couple rpc's later, client sends his current uname ?a and his current license server info.

RPCs number 27 and 28 are HOSTINFO and CLNT_LIST_REGISTER.
HOSTINFO is used for some things that the client needs to know (if server is same OS type or different), we may not be able to skip it--but we can analyze to see.
CLNT_LIST_REGISTER could certainly use some tuning/frequency adjustments.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
