max file size or line count for BIND zone file

Bind-Users forum mailing list
Wondering if anyone is aware of a max file size or max number of lines that a given BIND zone file can contain? 

Thanks,
Marty

There isn't a limit as such, so it depends on the capabilities of your
hardware. I have an old 7.7 million record RPZ zone here which
named-compilezone on my workstation loads in 32 seconds using 2GB RAM.
There are much bigger zones out there, e.g. .co.uk is hosted on BIND and
has roughly 9 million delegations. I won't guess how many records per
delegation on average :-)

decreasing 2 to 4 by early evening, locally variable 1 to 3 for a time, then
tonight south or southwest 3 or 4 locally 5, veering west 5 or 6 before
midday. Slight, occasionally moderate mid-channel at first, then increasing
moderate to rather rough late morning. Scattered showers, some heavy and
thundery till around midnight. Good, occasionally moderate or poor in showers.

Because you're looking at the text/html part of the message with an
incapable mailer. Try looking at the text/plain part instead as this
message has both:

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="UTF-8"
Content-Type: text/html; charset="UTF-8"

I would guess that lbutlr's complaint goes to HTML generated.  Holy sh*t, it
looks as ugly as html mail generated in MS-Word from some 15 years ago

generallym, plaintext is better for use in mailing lists
