Good day,


We have both a 32-bit machine and a 64-bit machine that are currently
configured for 4000000 entries.


The 32-bit machine's process levels out around 800M, and the 64-bit
machine's levels out around 1250M.

Hope this helps!

[Insert usual apologies about possibly stupid questions and not seeing
the same questions on the list]

Just a quick question regarding the excellent pdns-recursor:

To save myself a number of days of trial and error, I'm curious if
there's a rough conversion for max-cache-entries => memory limit of
cache. Obviously it's not going to be exact but is there a maximum limit
in bytes of each cache entry, so that max-cache-entry x
max-cache-entries = Max memory used for cache?
