I'm trying to run a DNS TCP performance test to a DNS server in a
lab environment. I'm doing the test from another server connected
directly with a 1 Gb link. Both servers are running CentOS 6.4. I use
dnsperf to run my DNS performance test on UDP, and it's giving me what I
want on both IPv4 and IPv6, but I can't find a proper tool to do it with

I tried querytcp, but it won't let me limit the maximum queries per
second. Also, couldn't get queryperf++ to install on my boxes because it
has some dependencies that it needs to run.

Does anybody know a good tool to do DNS performance tests over TCP?
