Got her installed, configured, up and running. Let's see if this improves this spamhaus situation, and a handful a day of other dns related errors I've been getting during mail transactions. Those other errors may be normal, maybe not. This resolver should help me figure that out. I limited the cache to 65536 entries to start with to keep the ram footprint low. That should be plenty for mail, maybe enough to serve my workstation as well. With it nearly empty at this point pdns_recursor is only occupying 1628 Bytes RES and 4016 VIRT. So far so good in the low resource consumption department. Thanks for the suggestion Ken. -- Stan
