Thread: [9fans] how large should dns get?

  1. [9fans] how large should dns get?

    We've installed a Barracuda box as a crap filter and it has put some
    stress on our dns server. Dns was breaking, so I un-unioned the RR
    data structure and added a nil pointer check one place and it stays
    up now. But how big will it get?

    Looks like 115 megs and counting. Will it stabilize
    or is there a memory leak?

    There is a memory leak.
    Too bad too, since I thought I had gotten the last one. ;-)

    leak(1) is your friend, though you might want to run it
    before dns gets quite so big.
