Netperf3 does need some porting help. I _think_ I might have left a
DNS_RR test in netperf2, but not documented it. One would have to run
several concurrent netperf2's to take a full measurement.
As for serving thousands of DNS requests per second, there are indeed
systems that can do that quite easily. There are write-ups of the
netperf3 DNS_RR measurements at:
most of them are for HP 9000's, but there is at least one result there
for a non-HP system that happened to wander into my net :)
these opinions are mine, all mine; HP might not want them anyway... :)
