Description Brian Feeny 1999-07-19 10:23:11 EDT
After upgrading from Redhat5.2 to Redhat6.0, bind started
having some serious problems.  Our nameserver, which handles
DNS for about 10,000 users and 800 domains, started
experiencing "brown outs", where it would just stop
responding.  The solution was to either wait a long time,
and it would correct itself, or restart named.

It is not reproducable at will, but it does happen at least
a few times a day, on our system with that load.  Also I
would notice that on many occasions bind would peg the cpu.

Moving the rawhide's bind fixed this problem.  Reason is
still unknown.

This issue has been submitted to developer for further action.

I think that we might want to consider releasing bind-8.2.1-3 as an
errata item, as it seems to fix a number of problems that people are
seeing in bind-8.2-6.
