BIND 10: DNS by Cooperating Processes

A quick look at the details of how BIND 10 provides DNS with a collection of cooperating processes.

Unlike BIND 9 or other DNS servers today, BIND 10 does not operate via a monolithic process that does everything. Instead, it uses individual processes to provide specific functions. This provides a number of benefits, such as scalability and improved fault tolerance and security, but requires additional software to hook it together, and has a few tricky corner cases.
