Yes it's a 64bit system.  Is there a noticeable difference if you run DNS
locally on the servers than from another local server.

I believe the Sunfire V210 is a 64-bit system, right?  Perl on a 64-bit
system uses a LOT more memory than on a 32-bit system.  I guess it uses a
lot of pointers in its internal data structures.
