2014-02-17 Thread Cathy Almond
Use a stub zone if you want to override published NSes _without_ crossing the very-important boundary between iterative and recursive resolution. Actually no - use static-stub (newer versions of BIND) - otherwise the NS records received from the zone may override the NS that you want to use.

Re: unable to obtain neither an IPv4 nor an IPv6 dispatch

It might have something to do with the number of CPUs that named detects when it starts, which (by default) drives how many listening tasks it starts per listening interface. BIND 9.10 changed the defaults slightly, but you can also control how many listening tasks per interface using the -U

Have a look at reducing -n to the number of physical cores (which might be 4 or 8) and then also have a look at -U (number of listening tasks per interface). Multiple listeners defaults to -n (number of worker threads). It's worth trying some tuning experiments from n/2 to n-1. What works best
