Hi Gaurav,

I would use dnsperf and the 1 million website list from Alexa:

Freebsd: http://www.freshports.org/dns/dnsperf

Depending on your OS there are available ports too.

Alexa's list:

Did that in the past and it worked pretty well.

Dear All,


I set up a new DNS Server using Bind 9.7

For meantime I open this server for the whole world. I wanna check how many
queries it can handle.

Is this any freeware available for checking this. Is there any tool
available by which I can come to know after how much load my DNS will be
down (Or it will stop responding) ???


Thanks and Regards,

Gaurav Kansal
