Hello all,

We are getting some problems on DNS resolution that are a bit strange. I was
wondering how can we test the health of our DNS servers ?
Are there any known tools online or some particular tests to be done with
BIND to ensure proper performance and response times ?
We are using BIND 8 (latest build) on NT4.
