Long ago I used Namebench to test DNS performance on my local network. Is there any replacement out there for this?
Specifically what I’m curious about is the performance difference of my laptop pointing at my router (which is, in turn, pointed at 126.96.36.199) vs pointing my laptop directly at 188.8.131.52.
I figure most lookups are cached b the router and leaving my laptop pointed at 192.168.0.1 might be better than pointing it at 184.108.40.206 all the time, even when I roam onto other networks. Although when roaming there are obvious security and privacy concerns where using 220.127.116.11 would be of benifit.
