Thank you for your help,
You were right, it's far better if you switch the 2 conditions in this test. But the real
bottleneck I found (I don't need to be clever while it's written in the the documentation :-)
is the call to ldns_zone_glue_rr_list. It takes more than 90% of the computing time for very
I also had to modify the ldns library to accept the following kind of glues:
one.example. NS one.example.
one.example. A 188.8.131.52
Now, I can validate shorter versions of .fr zonefiles.
It's still unacceptable for the whole zone, but if we can improve glue processing, I'm
pretty sure this tool could fit our requirements.
