SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking
Discover the advantages of SDN.
SDN has quickly become one of the hottest trends in IT. But not all SDN solutions offer real software-defined functionality. As more enterprises consider SDN, they want to know, “What is SDN? And what are the real benefits?” If you're ready to explore the advantages of SDN, and want to know how it should be implemented within your enterprise, start by reading our introductory white paper.

Whenever I create a new DNS zone file in BIND 9, some of the subdomains resolve very quickly, whereas others (particularly the root-level domain) do not.
For example, when setting up a mail server (on the same machine), "pop.example.com" and "smtp.example.com" will start resolving within a day or two, whereas "example.com" won't resolve for a week or two... even if all domains reference the same machine.
Here's an example zone file:
example.com. IN SOA localhost. root.localhost (
2 ; serial
28800 ; refresh
7200 ; retry
604800 ; expire
86400 ; ttl
IN NS localhost.
IN MX 2 smtp.example.com
smtp IN A 22.214.171.124
pop IN A 126.96.36.199
example.com. IN A 188.8.131.52
What could be going on here? Does this have to do with higher-level DNS processing, or is there something different I should be doing in my configuration?
My server is Redhat 9 (updated via the Fedora Legacy project) on an Athlon i686.
