What makes you think it needs any more memory? A caching nameserver isn't
a terribly memory-intensive unit. In the past, I've run quite peppy
systems on a few hundred megs of RAM.
I expect the 207M is all the system actually needs. Even if you figure
1K per entry, that's still 200,000 names it has cached.
