Relationship between DNS requests and server's CPU load


I want to know, is there any research or analysis on relationship between DNS server load ( e.g. CPU load, Memory
utilized) and incoming DNS resolution requests ?

Besides those research on name system architecture and cache policy, is there any guideline on planing or optimizing
domain name service system ?

thanks in advance.
