[Pdns-users] PDNS Rocks!

We finally got our DNS system set up with PowerDNS over here at dotMP 
and I am very happy with it.  I've got our root name servers running 
PDNS with both bind and a pipe backend (in that order) and then the 
servers which are handling all delegated names is also running PDNS with 
bind and pipe backends.  The majority of the work in both cases is being 
done through the pipe backend.  I've set the packet cache to 30 and that 
has helped performance and stability significantly.  The next step we 
will take is to replace the Perl script backend with a C app.

I never did resolve the issue about why a delegated name running on the 
root name servers running Bind will pass through the Bind 
delegation-only patch on recursive name servers whereas the same setup 
in PowerDNS will not.  The full thread is here in case anyone is still 
interested in trying to track down what is going on:


Anyhow, I'd just like to say that I am very happy with what I've been 
able to do with PowerDNS.  Thanks!
