10 instances ??
Im experimenting with 4 recursor instances because I have plenty of cpu and
top - 16:20:08 up 8 days, 7:36, 3 users, load average: 0.06, 0.05, 0.05
Tasks: 383 total, 1 running, 382 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 5.5%us, 2.5%sy, 0.0%ni, 91.4%id, 0.1%wa, 0.0%hi, 0.6%si,
Mem: 32867864k total, 4847800k used, 28020064k free, 149300k buffers
Swap: 16506872k total, 0k used, 16506872k free, 1395864k cached
dnsdist is reporting around 1200 qps at peak hours, should i benefit with
more simultaneous instances? if so, how many? Im starting to beleive this
server is oversized for the dns traffic our customers are demanding, what
do you think?
