Req 6.7 - Memory Utilization
As a user, I would like to know what named's current memory allocation being used for.
- If I am running low on available memory, I want to identify possible options for reducing memory consumption with a configuration change.
- Alternatively, this will help me identify 'runaway' processes that are eating memory and not freeing it as part of a troubleshooting exercise.
- When I am operating a hybrid server I need to see the amount of memory being used for auth vs recursive functions.
Some of this information may be available by querying the machine rather than the service. We may want to review what would be presented. As an operator, I am not going to benefit from really cryptic references to processes inside BIND that I cannot control or stop. However, ISC technical support might want some long list of arcane stuff that I cannot interpret.
