I recently upgraded my authoritative nameservers to bind-9.10.0-P2 and 
after a while one of them ended up using all its swap and the named 
process got killed. The other servers are seeing similar behaviour, but 
I restarted named on all of them to postpone further crashes.

I am using rate-limiting as well DLZ with PostgreSQL. The server has two 
views. The operating system is FreeBSD 8.4.

My configuration:

Log of the memory usage:

As you can see, in less than a week, named has grown more than 900MB in 

Is anyone else experiencing something similar?

If I need to provide more information, I will be happy to do so.
