IMHO, you are better off running a cache/slave DNS like bind or
tinydns. On Solaris we have found that nscd can be a bottleneck,
not a help. When we moved our web service (apache) from HP to
Solaris, we were getting really poor response until we turned off
nscd. I have it turned off on all of my Sun boxes, including
my MailScanner box. Others may have different insight on nscd.
