Deployment of DNSSEC in the Root Zone: Impact Analysis

The average message size of UDP-based DNS response size grew by about 40%, from 405 to 569 octets. The largest observed responses were just over 900 octets. There is evidence that the introduction of the DURZ resulted in an increase in the number of query retries for some types of query, but it is unclear whether this corresponds to clients with path MTU issues or is simply path MTU discovery at work. The apparent absence of any problem reports strongly suggests the latter. The number of TCP-based DNS queries to the root servers increased by approximately 1333%, from 30 per second prior to the introduction of the DURZ to around 400 per second afterwords. However, TCP-based queries, which were a miniscule 0.02% of total query traffic before the DURZ, were still only 0.17% of it afterwords.
