RIPE Labs measures DNS transfer size

RIPE Labs has reported the initial results from an effort to measure DNS transfer size, to determine whether larger DNSSEC responses would pose problems once the K-root begins to provide DNSSEC responses to requesting resolvers, and whether the larger responses would reach the resolvers.  From the article: “The good news is that the vast majority of measurements yield transfer sizes that will fit current DNSSEC answers from root name servers,” although “some resolvers that could experience time-outs and delays due to misconfigurations and middleware.”
