Re: DNS cpu utilization

These two bind servers are authoritative for 200 zones
and as far as clients go that's a hard one.  Because
of the way everything snowballed before I got ahold of
it it could be as many as > 10,000 this is a best
guess of course.  Once I prove that debian is the way
to go with this I plan to implement the split dns
topology.  I don't have any statistics yet but plan to
have some by week end.
