DNS test environment!!
Posted on 2005-04-04
This is going to sound funny. I work for a major cmpany as an IT manager. I am trying to crete a test enviroment that would simulate a slow DNS server, so that we can test some of our software. Any ideas to do this would be great. Below is what they are looking for.
--We need a way to simulate a slow DNS server so that when our server queries the DNS for an external system NAME or IP Address, we can simulate a 10 second response from the DNS server. This will allow us to verify that all queries after the first use the cached value on the server and takes only a couple seconds to complete instead of up to 15 seconds to complete.
Thanks in advance for the help.
