ARIN Services

Round robin works fine if they are all up. Otherwise one goes down,
you cache the name, and you keep trying to reach the downed server
until it comes up or the name times out of the cache. Of course if you
have 4 servers being round robin-ed then this only affects 25% of all
queries :slight_smile:


You're right, of course. This seems like a fairly fundamental bit
o'breakage to have lasted this long. This is the apps fault, of
course, unless I vastly misunderstand DNS... but that is a topic for
another list.
