How busy is this resolver, and how much ram is in the box?  I have busy
bind 8 resolvers whose named processes are consistently over 450 megs.
bind 9 will use even more ram. There is no substitute for enough ram in a
busy name server.

Also, RUN, do not walk to your nearest computer book store and buy "DNS
and BIND, 4th Edition." Then read it of course...
