Thanks Barry, as I did mention in the beginning it is a home lab setup 
for me to learn about network services and infrastructure a little so 
that when I do get to industry I understand the basics and at least have 
junior admin capabilities.

But still I will be looking for a new machine so probably what I will do 
is grab a Sun Fire X2250 single socket quad core Xeon with 2GB of memory 
so that I can either use as virtualized primary and secondary or 
alternatively run other services such as web server, mail server etc on top!

How can observer the query count? Is there a command or table or 
something or is it just how many hits the systems gets on port 53 
identified from some form of logging software?

Sorry if this thread wasted everyones time!
