Subject [users@httpd] Proposal to Optionally Block DNS
Date Sun, 23 Aug 2009 00:31:25 GMT
I propose this upgrade to Apache:

  Options +NoDNS

Prevents Apache from initiating DNS activity for
any reason.

I am now running my server with all DNS blocked
by iptables.  Performance is thereby substantially
improved.  Fortunately, I usually don't need DNS
for anything else on that box.
