Some details:

The box is an AlphaServer DS20E. It has two processors and 3
gigabytes of RAM. It runs Tru64 5.1B.

It serves 464 domains, which means 8228541 records (the largest zone
is ".nl" with 5302694 records).

The database is 365939793 bytes on disk and the daemons take 816M in

There are from 1000 to 1200 requests per second.

Until now, it works :-)
