[Unbound-users] cache size usage.

Hello,

 

I plan to use UNBOUND on an HP linux server (1CPU quad core - 3 GB)

I have the following questions about the cache size.

On my present DNS software, the cache size is present in the configuration file and is put to 2Gb.

 

In UNBOUND, I see in the configuration file the following parameters:

 

msg-cache-size ==> what is the meaning of this parameter?  What do I have to put as value for my specific hardware?

rrset-cache-size ==> what is the meaning of this parameter?  What do I have to put as value for my specific hardware?

 

 

Last question, what happens if these parameters are not used?

Is the cache always growing and giving a problem when no more memory is available?

 

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

 

Hugo,
