I've noticed a serious bug with PowerDNS 2.9.16, at least using the
If the PostgreSQL server PowerDNS is setup to connect to drops, reloads,
temporary loss of connection, etc, for whatever reason, PowerDNS looses
it's connection to the database, it stops completely. This is kind of a
fairly serious bug.
Another problem I found with PowerDNS is that if one were to send
/dev/urandom to a PowerDNS server, of a fairly large size, about 2-10mb
worth, powerdns will choke it up and fail. I found this out, because
someone had tried to do that to me, while I had bind running as a
front-end, and it never failed on me. But when I put PowerDNS in the
front, to handle it's zones, it bombed out completely, and fairly quickly.
