Yes, I assumed the queries/sec would scale reasonably.
I was wondering how many separate websites could be supported (each with their own monitoring requirements, for example)?
Can we support 100 different websites, each running 2-4 data centers -- let's call it 300 VIPs/servers to monitor (assume that each customer requires a separate monitoring configuration to specify the virtual host to monitor).
If we can support/monitor 100 ... can we monitor 200 ... 400 with a single set of gDNSd servers? At what point do we need to divide and conquer?
... to clarify, we aren't supporting this many customers yet. We have customers asking for these features, and I have made the case the gDNSd is a reasonable platform, as it provides much of the functionality that is needed. But I'm trying to get comfortable that we won't have to change platforms in a year.
