[Pdns-users] powerdns auth and recursor hardware specs

For one you are probably running with the default my.cnf file. You would
want to modify it to use a larger key_buffer which can help. However to
do this you would first want to upgrade the amount of memory you are
using. Which will allow you to up the recursor's amount of domains it
holds in memory. This should help quite a bit.

Good luck.

I think I miss something here. Can somebody give an example of hardware
specs for the authoritative server with recursor running? I run it on
5 with 2.6 GHz P4 and 1 GB of RAM. There's MySQL backend and about 700
domains hosted. Still the server experiences periods of slowness. I have
already presented a link to rrd graphs for the server. Do I have to run
separate box with the recursor?
