Hi Klaus

i have tried with adding listeners as well as adding same Bind server
again, but results are the same,
its very strange, i get better results hitting directly one Bind server
rather then Dnsdist with 8 listerners and 8 servers ( 4 x Bind1 and 4x
Bind2), and i have no other logic/routing/cache configured on dnsdist,
just the listeners and servers.

what are you using for load testing? resperf?

rg,

Gentian
