<p>
        <acronym class="acronym">DNS</acronym> hardware requirements have
        traditionally been quite modest.
        For many installations, servers that have been pensioned off from
        active duty have performed admirably as <acronym class="acronym">DNS</acronym> servers.
      </p>
<p>
        The DNSSEC features of <acronym class="acronym">BIND</acronym> 9
        may prove to be quite
        CPU intensive however, so organizations that make heavy use of these
        features may wish to consider larger systems for these applications.
        <acronym class="acronym">BIND</acronym> 9 is fully multithreaded, allowing
        full utilization of
        multiprocessor systems for installations that need it.
      </p>
</div>
<div class="section">
<div class="titlepage"><div><div><h2 class="title" style="clear: both">
<a name="cpu_req"></a>CPU Requirements</h2></div></div></div>
<p>
        CPU requirements for <acronym class="acronym">BIND</acronym> 9 range from
        i486-class machines
        for serving of static zones without caching, to enterprise-class
        machines if you intend to process many dynamic updates and DNSSEC
        signed zones, serving many thousands of queries per second.
      </p>
</div>
<div class="section">
<div class="titlepage"><div><div><h2 class="title" style="clear: both">
<a name="mem_req"></a>Memory Requirements</h2></div></div></div>
<p>
        The memory of the server has to be large enough to fit the
        cache and zones loaded off disk.  The <span class="command"><strong>max-cache-size</strong></span>
        option can be used to limit the amount of memory used by the cache,
        at the expense of reducing cache hit rates and causing more <acronym class="acronym">DNS</acronym>
        traffic.
        Additionally, if additional section caching
        (<a class="xref" href="Bv9ARM.ch06.html#acache" title="Additional Section Caching">the section called &#8220;Additional Section Caching&#8221;</a>) is enabled,
        the <span class="command"><strong>max-acache-size</strong></span> option can be used to
        limit the amount
        of memory used by the mechanism.
        It is still good practice to have enough memory to load
        all zone and cache data into memory &#8212; unfortunately, the best
        way
        to determine this for a given installation is to watch the name server
        in operation. After a few weeks the server process should reach
        a relatively stable size where entries are expiring from the cache as
        fast as they are being inserted.
      </p>

<div class="section">
<div class="titlepage"><div><div><h2 class="title" style="clear: both">
<a name="intensive_env"></a>Name Server Intensive Environment Issues</h2></div></div></div>
<p>
        For name server intensive environments, there are two alternative
        configurations that may be used. The first is where clients and
        any second-level internal name servers query a main name server, which
        has enough memory to build a large cache. This approach minimizes
        the bandwidth used by external name lookups. The second alternative
        is to set up second-level internal name servers to make queries
        independently.
        In this configuration, none of the individual machines needs to
        have as much memory or CPU power as in the first alternative, but
        this has the disadvantage of making many more external queries,
        as none of the name servers share their cached data.

<p>
        ISC <acronym class="acronym">BIND</acronym> 9 compiles and runs on a large
        number
        of Unix-like operating systems and on
        Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and 2008, and Windows XP and Vista.
        For an up-to-date
        list of supported systems, see the README file in the top level
        directory
        of the BIND 9 source distribution.
