Host lookups fail at first, but then succeed consistently.
K, recently the newsletter I send has gone from taking 2 hours, to 24hours to send. I recently updated my bind to fix a buffer overflow (bind 9.1) and I figured I would test it to make sure it was working okay. Well when i run a "host whatever.com" it consistently fails on the first try, and then if I do it right after it works. The errors are:
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
There are no errors in my logs, and I have tried with numerous different sites with the same result. My box is hosted, so Iam wondering if the host is screwing up net traffic, but I am trying to narrow it down a little more before I accuse them of network issues. I have rebooted the server, and it didn't help, there is no abnormal traffic on my system. System specs are:
Multi DC3 network
Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated. I don't see how it could be on my end.
