Hi Remi,

Thank you for your answer and recommendation.

We have basic configuration loadbalancer and seems our problem in it.

I will try to add the same backend server (now we have just one record for each 
separate server):

newServer({address="", qps=100000, name="lacalpdns10"})
newServer({address="x.x.x.x", qps=200000, name="pdns12"})
newServer({address="x.x.x.x", qps=200000, name="pdns13"})

How many the same backend servers I can use (your reccomendation for a lot of 

Could you explain more information about the 'sockets' parameter on the 
'newServer()' . Is it mean 'reuseport'?
Thank you for your support!

BR, Alexey

This seems ridiculously low for your hardware, but it's hard to know for
sure without seeing your configuration.
For what it's worth, you should be able to reach easily 450k QPS without
the packet cache being enabled and much more with it. I have seen one
dnsdist handle around 1M qps at 100% cache hit ratio in an ideal setup
in a lab. You should never reach that over a single dnsdist in
production, but still :)

You should first read [1], and tune at least setMaxUDPOutstanding(), use
several threads to handle incoming queries and consider adding several
newServer() directives (adding the same backend twice might help because
you then have more threads handling the responses) and/or use the
'sockets' parameter on the 'newServer()' directive depending on your setup.

Then the next step should be to get some metrics using `carbonServer()`
[2] and metronome [3], for example, so you know what's going on.
Then you might want to upgrade your kernel (recent Linux kernels are a
lot better at handling UDP packets) and tune your OS and your network cards.

I would advise removing any rule that you have in dnsdist's
configuration first and using one of the built-in load-balancing policy
to be sure that Lua isn't your bottleneck. Please also remember that
without the cache, dnsdist won't be faster than your backends, so
perhaps benchmark them as well.

Good luck!
