Interpreting your benchmark results above:


The following guide is only intended as a quick
"get you going" reference and reminder.
To obtain a working understanding of this program's operation, and to familiarize
yourself with its many features, please see the main DNS Benchmark web page by
clicking on the "Goto DNS Page" button below.
Referring to this sample:

64. 81.159. 2 | Min | Avg | Max |Std.Dev|Reliab%


----------------+-------+-------+-------+-------+------- Cached Name

The Benchmark creates a table similar to the one above for each DNS resolver
(nameserver) tested. The top line specifies the IP address of the nameserver for this
table.
The first three numeric columns provide the minimum, average, and maximum
query-response times in seconds. Note that these timings incorporate all network
delays from the querying computer, across the Internet, to the nameserver, the
nameserver's own processing, and the return of the reply. Since the numbers
contain three decimal digits of accuracy, the overall resolution of the timing is
thousandths of a second, or milliseconds.
The fourth numeric column shows the "standard deviation" of the collected queryresponse times which is a common statistical measure of the spread of the values
- a smaller standard deviation means more consistency and less spread.
The fifth and last numeric column shows the reliability of the tested nameserver's
replies to queries. Since lost, dropped, or ignored queries introduce a significant
lookup delay (typically a full second or more each) a nameserver's reliability is an
important consideration.
The labels of the middle three lines are colored red, green, and blue to match their
respective bars on the response time bar chart.

The "Cached Name" line presents the timings for queries that are answered from

the server's own local name cache without requiring it to forward the query to other

name servers. Since the name caches of active public nameservers will always be
full of the IPs of common domains, the vast majority of queries will be cached.
Therefore, the Benchmark gives this timing the highest weight.

The "Uncached Name" line presents the timings for queries which could not be

answered from the server's local cache and required it to ask another name server
for the data. Specifically, this measures the time required to resolve the IP
addresses of the Internet's 30 most popular web sites. The Benchmark gives this
timing the second highest weight.

The "DotCom Lookup" line presents the timings for the resolution of dot com

nameserver IP addresses. This differs from the Cached and Uncached tests
above, since they measure the time required to determine a dot com's IP, whereas
the DotCom Lookup measures the time required to resolve the IP of a dot com's
nameserver, from which a dot com's IP would then be resolved. This test presents
a measure of how well the DNS server being tested is connected to the dot com
nameservers.

The lower border of the table contains a set of eight indicators (O and -)
representing non-routable networks whose IP addresses are actively blocked by the
resolver to protect its users from DNS rebinding attacks: <O-OO---->. The "O"
character indicates that blocking is occurring for the corresponding network,
whereas the "-" character indicates that non-routable IP addresses are being
resolved and rebinding protection is not present. The first four symbols represent the
four IPv4 networks beginning with 10., 127., 172., and 192. respectively, and the
second four symbols are the same networks but for IPv6.
The final two lines at the bottom of each chart duplicate the information from the
Name and Owner tabs on the Nameserver page:

dns.chi1.speakeasy.net
Speakeasy
The first line displays the "Reverse DNS" name of the server, if any. (This is the
name looked up by the nameserver's IP address.) The second line displays the
Ownership information, if any, of the network containing the nameserver
The final line of the automatically generated chart is a timestamp that shows the
date and time of the start, completion, and total elapsed time of the benchmark:
UTC: 2009-07-15 from 16:41:50 to 16:44:59 for 03:08.703
All times are given in Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) which is equivalent to
GMT. In the sample shown above, the entire benchmark required 3 minutes, 8.703
seconds to run to completion.
