Hi List.
Thanks for all the great info in the archive.

I have a strange problem.

My name-server keeps running out of memory, which is causing lookups to

Below is an extract from the named.conf.

The bind version is 9.3.0.

The server is a dinosaur running 128MB.

// generated by
acl "bogon" {
// this list of blackhole ACLs!;;;;

options {
datasize 20M;
max-journal-size 5M;
interface-interval 0;
max-cache-size 20M;
memstatistics-file "named.memstats";
version "port not supported";
pid-file "/var/run/named/";
allow-query { any; };

directory "/var/named";
         * If there is a firewall between you and nameservers you want
         * to talk to, you might need to uncomment the query-source
         * directive below.  Previous versions of BIND always asked
         * questions using port 53, but BIND 8.1 uses an unprivileged
         * port by default.
// query-source address * port 53;

allow-transfer {; localhost; };

allow-transfer {; localhost; };

        blackhole {
                // Deny anything from the bogon networks as
                // detailed in the "bogon" ACL.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
