DragonFly bugs List (threaded) for 2005-09
Re: nntp.dragonflybsd.org slowness?
:It's taking ~30 seconds between the telnet and getting the banner line.
:Watching it via Ethereal shows:
:1 0.000000 TCP 3144 > nntp [SYN] Seq=0 Ack=0 Win=65535 Len=0 MSS=1460
:2 0.055418 TCP nntp > 3144 [SYN, ACK] Seq=0 Ack=1 Win=4096 Len=0 MSS=1460
:3 0.055688 TCP 3144 > nntp [ACK] Seq=1 Ack=1 Win=65535 Len=0
:4 30.181944 NNTP Response: 200 crater_reader.dragonflybsd.org NNRP ...
:The reason why it's taking ~30 seconds to pull up an article is because
:Thunderbird is (for whatever stupid reason) making multiple connections
:while I'm reading.
:I suspect part of the issue could be that inetd on your end is trying to
:do a reverse lookup on my IP and timing out -- alas, whatever service
:they have here has not set up reverse addresses in their nameserver.
Ok, please try it now. I found a bug in my secondary nameserver setup
which may be the cause. It wasn't using port 53 for its outgoing
(recursive) requests and the responses were being smashed by my firewall.
