Re: [opensuse] optimizing resolv.conf
David T-G said the following on 01/03/2014 03:32 PM:
I am QUITE convinced that it should not be the client's job; that's why
there are load balancers that present multiple instances behind one IP.

That would require one and only one pipe into the service.
For many high volume services that is unacceptable.

In addition, many services separate out different types of content.



I*might* be open to the concept of regional addressing, but only if the
case is made very eloquently.

Regional addressing as in "if the requester is in Europe have them served from a server that is electrically situated near them rather than making every transaction go all the way across the Atlantic to the USA."

Actually if I query google for google.com I end up getting served by google.ca :-) And I'm not even French!

Its no 'eloquence' we've been discussion so much as speed of response.
