It’s been a bit quiet on the blogging front this week, namely due to me being knocked out for 24 hours with a bug (come on medical science!). I thought I’d pop by and give you a few funky images of three days worth of traffic for our DNS cluster!
So what do these actually mean?
Well, in any one day, these graphs show that on average, we transfer nearly 500MB of data (just DNS data) every day, that’s 1.5GB every 3 days (over the sample size above) to an average of 15GB per month. Not that large you’d think, but if you consider the average DNS record response is contained in a single UDP packet of maximum size 65,507 bytes, that is quite a few responses to your queries!
Until another time!
If you think I’ve missed something out, or you want to see me post about a topic that interests you, please feel free to drop me an e-mail to email@example.com. I’m also looking for tips for the next weekly top tip, and I’ll be offering some goodies for the best one (which will be published). Have a tip? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I look forward to hearing them! Alternatively, you can stalk me on Twitter!
