NameBench is a program designed to help the user choose the highest DNS servers. After some analysis, it displays the fastest DNS on which the user can connect.

Key features

  • Analyzing: this program was developed to perform a series of tests to identify and display the most powerful DNS servers. Its investigation system uses various data, such as the browser history and results of the "tcpdump" command.
  • Benchmarking: after scans, NameBench is able to display the comparison result between the available DNS. The benchmarks are exposed as graphs and the most efficient services will be placed above others.
  • Optimization: NameBench allows the user to choose the best provided configuration following the performed analysis. A new configuration can be set to accelerate the connection to the web. This requires inserting data into the fields dedicated to it.
