I have a question about "best" practices for directory hashing. I have about 80,000 
zone files which are named after the domain which I generate using a Perl script. I'm 
looking for the best hashing to reduce the start up time for bind. 

I've tried different hashings. Using example.foo as an example (:-)), if I take the 
first and second letters of the domain and hash it like this 
/var/named/e/x/example.foo I still end up with (in a few cases) more than 3000 zones 
in one directory. If I hash using the first+second and third+fourth like this 
/var/named/ex/am/example.com I end up with a lot fewer zones in the individual 
directories, but bind's start up time is much longer.

I can live with the first hasing if I need to, but I'm seeking some advice and 
suggestions on what others think (or know) would be better.

John Ekins.
