dnsdist, a project from PowerDNS, is over a year old now. It is a highly flexible
and programmable (Lua) loadbalancer for DNS that tries to deliver top performance
to legitimate users and tries to block DoS and abusive traffic. Furthermore, it
can give a view of what is going “right now” in your DNS without the need for
tcpdump/awk/sed/grep and can be a source of highly detailed metrics on the health
of your DNS platform.
