As for the file descriptors, I already added the following:
- in sysctl.conf : fs.file-max = 65535
- in /etc/init.d/pdns-recursor
# chkconfig: - 80 75
# description: pdns_recursor is a versatile high performance recursing nameserver
ulimit -HSn 65536
How can I know that the above settings are working? with squid for example, I can know by doing squidclient -p port mgr:info....
Thanking you in advance
