Hi Stephane,

Thanks for your kind response.We plan to use 2 caching servers with load 
balancers to handle very high load,Can you suggest what are the 
parameters , we need to set at OS side.we are using centos 6.2.

What is generic benchmark for unbound and QPS for caching dns server?

Regards,
Ben
