Thread: Bind CPU ussage issue

  1. Bind CPU ussage issue

    I am having a helleva time managing Bind on my server.

    Server Specs are

    Dual Xeon 2.66 GHZ
    1 Gb ram
    Windows 2003 Server
    ISC Bind 9.2.2

    Now Bind will regularly spike up to 100% CPU usage and stay there
    untill the named service is restarted. then it will work its way back
    up there again after a non descript period of time.

    Is there a configuration glitch that is causing it to eat CPU cycles
    like they are going out of style? or will upgrading to the latest
    release solve my issues?



  2. Re: Bind CPU ussage issue

    I should also point out, what while bind is using 100% CPU it still
    continues to provide its dns information.

    it just bogs down a bit and eats resources.

    this DISC_MEM_USE_INTERNAL_MALLOC issue that i had mentioned to me..
    would that require me to compile my own version for usage

    (as far as i know this was simply a downloaded binary for windows that
    is being used)

    Great

    I will do that, the upgrade process between versions is fairly painless?

    This is a positively ancient version of BIND 9. Don't use it. There were
    architectural issues on Windows with that version that were fixed a long
    time ago. Use the latest released version which is 9.3.2 or the forthcoming
    9.3.3 or 9.4.0 versions.

    I'm not doing the whole AD "thang", so it's all good, just a standard DNS

    Yes. It will set up a named account for you and it will use that for access
    so make sure your permissions are set up to allow access to the named
    directories. You may need to do additional work if you are running this as a
    domain controller and need to create the account in active directory since
    the installer doesn't know anything about that.
