NTP Pool News

DNS status

We deployed the new DNS system to 4 out of the 5 pool.ntp.org nameservers. We have several new systems that volunteers have offered ready to be setup, but no time to configure and test them yet. Hopefully it will be done within a week or so…

We’ve noticed an issue with the new system that it seems too eager to send traffic to the high bandwidth systems rather than the low-bandwidth ones. I am looking into it, although not with too much urgency as none of the high-bandwidth server operators have gotten more traffic than they can handle.
