Hi Genzo,

Did you try 100000 unique queries?

Secondly, which version of PowerDNS did you test?

Finally, during testing, can you enable graphing? See
https://blog.powerdns.com/2014/12/11/powerdns-graphing-as-a-service/ - this
shows what PowerDNS is doing as it answers your questions.

If this is all cache misses on a low-power VPS on 3.x.x, with lots of
domains, this number is not unexpected.

Can you try 4.x.x and with the graphs? That will allow us to see if
performance is what you could expect.
