I'm running bind 9.2.4 and am regularly seeing it use > 1.5Gb ram. I'm loading
~ 1050 zones and an RBL zone. The zones on disk are 132680Mb (measured with
du). rndc dumpdb produces a 40Mb dump file.
Immediately after startup completes, bind is using slightly less than 500Mb.
max-cache-size is set to 250M. The machine has 1Gb of physical memory + 2Gb
I would expect memory usage to stabilize somewhere around 750Mb, but it
doesn't. After a few weeks of running, the amount of swapping becomes
noticeable and I have to kill and restart named. Are there issues with
max-cache-size in 9.2.4? Or am I missing something obvious?
