DNS Resolver

  • when I uses the Diagnostic DNS lookup, I notice that the loopback try to resolver a site it time in Query time 358 Msec is higher then the local opendns server Query time 64 Msec. It that normal for higher dns lookup time for the loopback address?

    It depends on what it's doing. If the query was not in the cache and it has to do DNSSEC validation, it can take longer. If the query comes from the cache it would be faster. Try the same exact query a few times in a row.
