I think the question is truly this: some of the dns responses that i saw had low ttls, should they use a longer ttl? the problems i saw were related to the data expiring from the cache, some of this is to workaround broken clients/resolvers that will "latch" on to one IP (as part of a load balancing solution), but IMHO those people don't deserve internet service until their systems properly do RR... so, should the ttl be more like 1h or 1d instead of less? (random thoughts) or perhaps some of these people may wish to run their own nameservers and just use akamai for content? then again, the whole point of this is to outsource it, i'm sure these people have some SLA in their contracts so are getting credits or somesuch.. - jared -- Jared Mauch | pgp key available via finger from firstname.lastname@example.org clue++; | http://puck.nether.net/~jared/ My statements are only mine.
