Hello everybody,

I am running BIND 9.4.2 and I want to limit the cache size of the named process
because It tends to grow indefinitly.

In order to do that, I put the following line in global option section :

max-cache-size 2M ;

The problem is : this parameter does not seem to work at all because with or
without it, the size of named is the same. Doing a "rndc dumpdb -cache" show a
named_dump.db file size of about 60Mb which is much more than 2Mb as set in

Am I missing something or the parameter is not used by named ?
