Also, if your server is not well-connected (if you have slow or
intermittent packet drops) between your server and the Internet, then
you might be affected by a defect in the prefetch implementation that
can impact performance for some server environments.
See https://kb.isc.org/article/AA-01315 and see if disabling prefetch
helps in your environment.
(The problem that this article talks about will be fixed in 9.10.4).
