Thanks, I have already used that page on optimizing For my own compile I have been using: ./configure --prefix=/opt/unbound --with-libs=/usr/local/lib --libexecdir=/opt/unbound/lib --sysconfdir=/var/unbound/etc --sharedstatedir=/var/unbound --localstatedir=/var/unbound --with-conf-file=/var/unbound/etc/unbound.conf --with-run-dir=/var/unbound --with-chroot-dir=/var/unbound --with-pidfile=/var/unbound/run/unbound.pid --with-username=unbound --with-openssl=/lib64 --without-pthreads --without-solaris-threads --with-libevent=/usr/local/libevent/ Is the default --enable-debug?

Note that the EPEL builds for unbound use --enable-debug, which might make it slower. I am not sure how big the impact is. The stock unbound.conf is also not aggressively using most of your memory for a dedicated nameserver, so you might want to tweak the stock config file.
